Not only are Democrats attacking Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and others who objected on January 6th in order to falsely blame them for the Capitol riot, but now Never Trumpers are joining in the fight with a despicable billboard campaign in hopes of turning their constituents against them:

Here’s more from Politico:
The anti-Trump Republican Accountability Project is kicking off a $1 million billboard campaign Thursday that targets 12 Republican lawmakers, including Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
The billboards call on the dozen congressional Republicans to resign for spreading falsehoods about the 2020 election. “You lied about the election. The Capitol was attacked,” the billboards read according to details first shared with POLITICO. All of the lawmakers on the list voted Jan. 6 — hours after the Capitol insurrection — to reject state electors Joe Biden won in November as part of an effort to overturn the election results.
The effort is part of a larger $50 million campaign by a coalition of “Never Trump” groups, which plan to support GOP lawmakers who vote to impeach or convict former President Donald Trump in the House and Senate and to target Republicans who’ve continued to side with Trump.
The billboard target list is composed of “people who are the most enthusiastic about lying to their constituencies about the election being stolen,” said Sarah Longwell, executive director of the Republican Accountability Project. “The goal is to not allow these officials to memory-hole the fact that they pushed this lie, which incited the attack on the Capitol.”
The billboards will be placed in each House member’s district, as well as in multiple cities in Texas and Missouri targeting Cruz and Hawley. Thursday’s launch is the first phase of the $1 million campaign, with additional billboards set to launch soon after. Cruz and Hawley aren’t up for reelection until 2024.
The nine other Republicans targeted in the campaign are: Reps. Devin Nunes (Calif.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Jim Jordan (Ohio), Louie Gohmert (Texas.), Madison Cawthorne (N.C.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Dan Bishop (N.C.).
This is what hating Trump does to Never Trumpers. They are so obsessed with getting Trump impeached that they act like despicable Democrats, attacking good Republicans for simply exercising their right to object, just like Democrats have done over the years. They blame them for the riot which they had nothing to do with, and are actively trying to destroy them in hopes that they lose when they are up for reelection again. All because they stood with Trump.
