Susan Lynn Wiant Brooks (born August 25, 1960 in Fort Wayne, Indiana (age 63)) is a prosecutor and moderate Republican currently representing Indiana's 5th district in the U.S. House of Representatives. An advocate for the homosexual agenda, Brooks voted in favor of the far-left Equality Act, which would designate individually self-identified gender identity as federally "protected" classes. Having caved into the liberal mob over Donald Trump's supposedly "racist" tweets, she joined all Democrats in voting for a time-wasting resolution to condemn the president's "hateful" messages directed towards the Squad, a four-member group of progressive, anti-American leftists.

Rep. Brooks is a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership and a co-chair of the moderate Tuesday Group.

In mid-June 2019, Brooks announced that she would not seek re-election in 2020 to a fifth House term,[1] eliciting disappointment from several establishmentarians.[2]

2014 election

Rep. Brooks easily won re-election in 2014 by a landslide margin.[4]

In February 2014, Brooks voted against a bill that would extend the statutory limit on the public debt.[6]

Rep. Brooks voted in favor of implementing the Keystone XL.[7]

Brooks joined the majority of House Republicans in mid-April 2015 in voting to repeal the estate tax, often referred to as the detah tax.[8]

Being pro-life, Brooks joined 98% of House Republicans in voting to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.[9]

Rep. Brooks voted for the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015.[10]

2016/2018 elections

Brooks was easily re-elected in 2016 with over 60% of the vote.[11] However, she only managed to win election to a fourth House term in 2018 by a significantly smaller margin compared to the previous landslide victories.[12]

Trump era

In May 2019, Rep. Brooks joined 7 House moderate/liberal Republicans and all Democrats in voting to pass the Equality Act, erroneously claiming that the legislation is relevant to combating discrimination.[13]

After President Trump sent a tweet rebuking the Squad amidst the latter's continuous inciting of hatred and bigotry, Brooks was none too quick to rebuke the president;[14] she joined three House RINOs as well as all Democrats in voting in favor of a resolution to condemn the "hateful" tweets.[15]

Brooks opposed[16] and voted against the sham articles of impeachment brought against President Trump.[17]

On September 17, 2020, Brooks voted in favor of a bill sponsored by far-left Democrat Grace Meng to condemn the use of the term "Chinese virus" as being "racist".[18]
