Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Is Stripped of House Committee Posts.
The vote to remove Representative Greene
from her committee assignments was 230 to 199.
Ten Republicans voted with Democrats.
Greene was censured due to racist and
xenophobic comments, her connections with
right-wing conspiracy theory organization QAnon .
and her endorsement of calls to
execute prominent Democratic House members,
including Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The first-term GA representative had been
assigned to the House Education and Labor committee,
as well as the Budget committee.
It is the first time in the House's modern history
that the majority party exercised its power to strip
a minority member of their assignments.
The move effectively contains Rep. Greene
from exerting influence on House legislation.
Greene spoke in her own defense
before the vote but did not offer
an apology for her actions.
I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true and I would ask questions about them and talk about them and that is absolutely what I regret, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, (R-GA),
via 'The New York Times'.
Republican House members referred to
the vote as "dangerous for this institution.”
