U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, was among four U.S. House members who voted against a bill Wednesday that would make lynching a federal hate crime. But his opposition centered on the bill’s maximum 10-year prison sentence, which “almost trivializes such a heinous offense,” he said in a statement.
