Education Week reports:
The new House education committee, which is still taking shape, will soon include a freshman Republican whose past comments on school shootings have drawn calls from gun control groups for her resignation. A Washington Post story on Jan. 22 highlighted how, in response to a 2018 comment on Facebook that recent school shootings weren’t real, now-U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said, “That’s all true.”
In response to questions from Education Week about Rep. Greene’s education priorities and concerns about her past comments on school shootings, spokesman Nick Dyer did not address her comments on the shootings.
“Congresswoman Greene is excited to join the House Education and Labor Committee. Rep. Greene is ready to get to work to reopen every school in America, expand school choice, protect homeschooling, champion religious freedom for student and teachers, and prevent men and boys from unfairly competing with women and girls in sports,” Dyer said in an email.

Another day of no consequence from the fraud @mtgreenee. Marjorie, I will be in Washington DC soon. You will meet with me in person. I will put an end to your conspiracy. I plan to bring proof. Hopefully you will resign before it becomes necessary. https://t.co/vPYPpWUxue
