House Sets Thursday Vote To Remove Marjorie Taylor Greene From Committees

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have set a Thursday vote to potentially remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from all committees. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer shared the update regarding the divisive congresswoman on Wednesday afternoon.

"I spoke to Leader McCarthy this morning, and it is clear there is no alternative to holding a Floor vote on the resolution to remove Rep. Greene from her committee assignments," Rep. Steny Hoyer stated.

"The Rules Committee will meet this afternoon, and the House will vote on the resolution tomorrow."

Greene has remained on the front page of news sites for some time now. The congresswoman is a noted QAnon supporter and openly spread lies regarding last year's presidential election. She has also called for the impeachment of President Joe Biden and berated Capitol Police officers for instituting stronger security measures following the riots of January 6. Just last month, her antics resulted in a Twitter ban. Most recently, Rep. Cori Bush asked that her office be moved farther away from Greene after the maskless Georgia lawmaker allegedly harassed her. Over time, members of both parties have raised issues with the congresswoman's behavior.

Leading the way, Rep. Jahana Hayes called for Greene to be removed from the House Committee on Education and Labor. Hayes represents the town of Newtown, Connecticut that endured a horrific in-school shooting in 2012. Greene has not only questioned if the Sandy Hook shooting took place, but she also harassed a survivor of the Parkland school shooting.

“On this committee we discuss things like trauma-informed responses for kids, making school climate safe,” Hayes said Monday.

“The fact that she won’t even just acknowledge the fact that [school shootings] happened is a nonstarter.”

If the measure is pushed through, Greene would be removed from both the House Committee on Education and Labor and the budget committee. It would not be the first time that a member of congress had been removed from committees in Congress. Two years ago, former Rep. Steve King was removed from all committees after defending white supremacy during an interview.
