Mo Brooks has received a high percentile rating from the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF).

Congressman Mo Brooks announced on Tuesday that he had received the Award for Conservative Excellence from the ACUF. The designation is given to any lawmaker who has a 90% or above on ACUF’s scorecard.

The ACUF’s 51st annual conservative congressional scorecard scores all 8,000 lawmakers across 50 states. Politicians’ scores are determined by measuring their voting record, either for or against the ACUF’s policy position. 

Brooks has a lifetime ranking of 91.5% and a 2021 ranking of 97%. Brooks ranks 25th overall amongst those in congress. 

“Weak-kneed RINO Republicans move over! Mo Brooks is the fighter who will save America,” Brooks said in a statement. “I don’t just talk the talk at election time, I walk the walk when it comes to tough votes in Congress. That’s what is needed at this pivotal point in American history— conservative stalwarts who will take the fight to the Washington establishment whose corrupt ways have led America to the brink of Socialist-hellscape disaster. I have proven time and again to be among the most conservative members of Congress according to groups like the American Conservative Union who evaluate votes in areas such as honest and accurate elections, the Second Amendment, personal liberty, low taxes, debt-junkie spending, and so on. I am Alabama’s conservative leader.

“Conversely, pretend conservatives and RINOs who scored low on ACUF’s scorecard include Leader Mitch McConnell (64%), Senator Richard Shelby (76%), Senator Mitt Romney, (56%), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (49%), Congressman Adam Kinzinger (42%) and Congresswoman Liz Cheney (71%)."

The only instance of Brooks voting against the ACUF’s policy position in 2021 was when he voted in favor of the Oral Health Literacy and Awareness Act, which expanded the Public Health Service Act to include “oral health literacy and awareness” in public education.

Additionally, in 2020, Brooks voted in favor of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which increased government spending by $300 billion. The ACUF was not in favor of that act.
