House Votes 230-199 To Kick Greene Off Committees

CNN reports:

The House will vote Thursday on a measure to remove Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments, a decisive step that comes in the wake of recently unearthed incendiary and violent past statements from the congresswoman that have triggered widespread backlash from Democrats and divided congressional Republicans.

House Democrats, who control the chamber, set up the vote after first attempting to pressure Republicans to strip the Georgia Republican of committee assignments on their own.

House Republicans have not taken that action, however, and House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday released a statement calling the push by Democrats to take away the congresswoman’s committee assignments a “partisan power grab.”

UPDATE: And she’s off those committees with 11 “yes” votes from House Republicans, who should all brace for death threats from the red hats. There was one abstention and two reps did not vote for reasons not yet known.
