<p>According to reporter Mark Weiner, Republicans in Cayuga County were set to vote on the censure — but before they did, Katko spoke with them, described the events of the Capitol riot from his perspective, and his account convinced them to respect his decision.</p><p>”Katko, R-Camillus, addressed the GOP group for about 15 minutes Saturday before the vote by secret ballot, said Cayuga County Clerk Sue Dwyer, one of the committee members who attended the meeting,” said the report. “Katko answered questions from committee members, Dwyer said, and explained why he was among 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for ‘inciting insurrection’ in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.”</p><p>”I appreciated that Congressman Katko showed up,” said Dwyer after the meeting. “He was able to stand up and tell us exactly what happened.”</p><p>Elsewhere around the country, Republican officials aren’t so willing to listen.
