Gomez’s office said the congressman is introducing the resolution “in light of numerous reports revealing her repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism and political violence.”
Greene, who represents Georgia’s 14th congressional district, has had several social media posts surface in which she’s touted several conspiracies.
In his statement, Rep. Gomez says her endorsement of the conspiracies is a danger to others in Congress.
“As if it weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories that the September 11 attacks were an inside job, and the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was staged, a string of recent media reports has now confirmed that Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House, members of Congress and former President Barack Obama.”
“Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve government,” he added, “and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.” Greene won election to Congress in November, after running unopposed.
Greene has trended on social media for days as videos of her harassing members of Congress and Parkland shooting survivor and gun rights advocate David Hogg.
An investigation by CNN’s Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski uncovered some of her actions on social media including “liking” a comment about shooting Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and an old post where she referenced hanging former President Obama.
The day after President Joe Biden was sworn in, Greene introduced an article of impeachment, causing a stir on social media once again.
Senate newcomer, and fellow Georgian Sen. Raphael Warnock called Greene out on Twitter.
Greene has been banned on Twitter permanently for her rhetoric. Republican leaders in the House have yet to address or reprimand Greene, but a spokesperson for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he “plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman.”
