@Rigel9000 I'm certainly not defending all their votes. I'm 100% for both voting rights bills. But the award is given for a CONSPICUOUS ACT OF POLITICAL COURAGE. Too many people on Twitter underestimate the difficulty of doing what Cheney and Kinzinger have done.

The #ProfileinCourageAward is not a purity test. It is given to honor a political figure for a conspicuous act of courage, such as risking one's career on principle. I'd say a Republican strongly opposing Donald Trump and his attempted coup and January 6th insurrection qualifies.
