Waltz Condemns Secretary Buttigieg for Incompetency, Calls for Resignation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, U.S. Congressman Mike Waltz (FL-6) introduced legislation to condemn U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for his actions, or lack thereof, in office and call for his resignation. Representatives Claudia Tenney (NY-24), Ryan Zinke (MT-1), Clay Higgins (LA-3), Greg Steube (FL-17), Mary Miller (IL-15), Bill Posey (FL-8), Lauren Boebert (CO-3), and Mike Collins (GA-10) co-sponsored the resolution.

“Over the last two years, Secretary Buttigieg has gone AWOL during multiple national crises,” said Waltz. “From failing to immediately respond to last month’s major economic, environmental, and humanitarian disaster in East Palestine to neglecting his duties during a historic supply chain crisis, commercial flight crisis, rail worker strike, and so much more, Buttigieg has endangered and failed the American people time and time again. That’s why I am calling for his resignation.”
