Devin Nunes represents the 22nd Congressional district in California, which covers some of Fresno and Tulare counties. Nunes has sought repeatedly to impede and obfuscate the investigation into foreign meddling in our elections. His brazen politicization of election security led the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate his behavior. Unsurprisingly, Nunes is a close ally of Trump who served on his transition team. More recently, Nunes frivolously sued Twitter and three Twitter users for over $250 million dollars in damages over “defamation” that caused him “immense pain” and included vulgar language. Two of the name defendants were parody accounts, including one from the perspective of a cow owned by Nunes. While he may not be in the moooooood for mockery on Twitter, he consistently turns his back on his constituents, voting to gut Medicaid/MediCal despite representing thousands of families and seniors who depend on it. His district has some of the worst air pollution in America, but that doesn’t stop him from consistently voting against environmental protections, and he even blamed California’s drought on protections for endangered species. Devin Nunes has shown that his loyalty is not to his constituency but to President Trump and his own ego.
