Democrats kill police reform bill. Senator Tim Scott calls them out.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., ripped into Democrats Wednesday after the bill he authored on police reform failed in the Senate on a procedural vote, accusing Democrats of punting on the issue until after the election and abusing what he described as their "monopoly" on black voters. “They cannot allow this party to be seen as a party that reaches out to all communities in this nation,” he said of congressional Democrats.

He turned to Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments that Republicans are "trying to get away with murder, actually – the murder of George Floyd," calling those remarks "toxic."

The procedural vote on whether to start debate was 55-45; it needed 60 votes in order to proceed. Republicans had 53 votes, but not enough Democrats joined them. This effectively freezes police reform in Congress.
