(RepublicanNews.org) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has seen his fair share of controversy regarding his decision to raise the issue of possible widespread election fraud when Congress met to certify the Electoral College ballots on January 6. A riot broke out in the nation’s capital that day, and members of the media and other groups have been looking for scapegoats to blame ever since.
Princeton University’s prestigious American Whig-Cliosophic Society conducted a witch hunt late last month and targeted Sen. Cruz, blaming him for the so-called “insurrection.” The group voted by a margin of 37 to 32 to strip Cruz of his James Madison Award for Public Service, given to him in 2016.

According to a petition filed with the group by Liberal members, Cruz’s “role in the invasion” at the US Capitol Building put him at “severe odds” with his position as a US Senator. It also complained about him raising the issue of possible election fraud.
The action wouldn’t become final until the society’s board of trustees approve the petition and vote. However, they don’t appear to be in a hurry to meet on the matter. The society’s official calendar didn’t show any upcoming board meetings.
