Three GOP House Reps Vote Against Anti-Lynching Bill

Mediaite reports:

Three House Republicans voted against an anti-lynching bill on Monday, which passed overwhelmingly, 422-3. H.R. 55, an amendment to section 249 of the U.S. code, also called the “Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act,” was put up for a vote on Monday.

Those who voted against the amendment were Reps. Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chip Roy (R-TX). Massie, a libertarian-leaning Republican, explained his no vote on Twitter Monday evening. He said making lynching a federal crime is unconstitutional.
