Last Feb.19, a resolution to expel Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress, was formally introduced by Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez (CA). Gomez cited as grounds for expulsion, Greene’s blatant encouragement of violence against the U.S. government, as well as her endorsement of the execution of Nancy Pelosi and other Congressional peers.
The California Representative stated that while the resolution does not benefit him any way, anyone who threatens lives and incites political violence should be expelled. Although only 72 Democratic Representatives have expressed their support to Gomez’s resolution, expulsion of a sitting member of the House, of Representatives, requires ⅔ majority votes.
Expulsion Resolution Has Zero Support from Republican Representatives
As can be expected, no Republicans have voiced support for Representative Gomez’s resolution, which clearly shows the great divide between the two leading political parties in Congress. Nothing has changed despite the harrowing experience that all lawmakers went through during the Capitol siege in January 06, 2021.
The backlash against the congresswoman has heightened ever since CNN’s KFile showed that in 2018 to 2019, Greene actively called for the execution of prominent Democratic politicians.
Moreover, she also agrees with conspiracy theories that the occurrence of school shootings in the country was staged, after a video of her emerged, where she is seen harassing one of the students who survived the Parkland school shooting incident in 2018.
In February, the Democratic-led House of Representatives voted to remove the Georgia congresswoman from her membership in the House Education Committee.
