Democrats move to censure Marjorie Taylor Greene

Date:

As if she cares. Her shtick is one thing and one thing only, to build her horseface looking ass into a gun nut celebrity and two-dollar saloon girl. But what do I know? She certainly doesn’t know anything about government, and even though she graduated with a Business Administration degree, she knew nothing about running her own CrossFit gym business.

So, why not take a stab at the Georgia 14th district and see how that works? The problem is, she’s produced zero as a representative in that district. No one in that hillbilly district has benefitted at all from her being in the House of Representatives. She’s succeeded in producing jack fucking shit. Anyway, Democrats are trying to censure her so they can finally get some work done.

Story below:

House Democrats are preparing to file a censure resolution targeting a Republican lawmaker for the second week in a row, this time against far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), our colleague Marianna Sotomayor reports. 

Freshman Rep. Becca Balint (D-Vt.) is expected to introduce the censure this afternoon, which would condemn Greene for fanning “the flames of racism, antisemitism, LGBTQ hate speech, Islamophobia, anti-Asian hate, xenophobia and other forms of hatred.” 

The four-page resolution, obtained exclusively by The Washington Post, reads more like a charging document as it lists roughly 40 examples of Greene espousing such views, including unhinged conspiracy theories, calls for violence, sympathetic views toward insurrectionists, and recent offensive behavior like showing graphic images of Hunter Biden during a congressional hearing last week.

“For me, censuring Rep. Taylor Greene is about the health of our democracy and faith in government. Her antisemitic, racist, transphobic rhetoric has no place in the House of Representatives,” Balint said in a statement. “Unserious elected officials like Taylor Greene make a mockery of our democratic institutions and derail us from the urgent work we’ve been tasked with.”

Aides say they can bring up the privileged resolution at any time — and possibly as early as this week — if the Republican majority fails to reprimand Greene and force Republicans to vote on the punishment.

Democrats kicked Greene off her committees in the last Congress for antisemitic and violent remarks but did not censure her.  

Republicans censured Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) last month for his role in the investigation into alleged Russian collusion by President Donald Trump

Just last week, Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.) similarly filed a resolution against Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), which would censure him for myriad falsehoods he’s told about his career, family, and education. It could also be moved under privilege if the House Ethics Committee does not release a report on Santos this week, a key ask by fellow New York Republicans who supported an investigation to be completed within 60 days over expelling Santos in May. 

Several of Santos’s Republican colleagues have since said they would vote in support of the resolution if Democrats forced a vote on it to the floor.
