McHenry Rejects ‘Wokeness’ Allegations in Financial Services Committee Agenda

Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-NC10, is receiving pushback from conservative media for language on “diversity and inclusion” in the jurisdiction descriptions for each of the subcommittees of the U.S. House Financial Services Committee, of which he took over as chair following the Republicans’ victory in the 2022 midterms. Washington Free Beacon led with the headline, “Woke Agenda Survives: These House Republicans Are Sticking With ‘Diversity and Inclusion,‘” and a headline from the American Conservative read, “The DEI Republicans.” Photo credit:
