The Independent reports:
Marjorie Taylor Greene opposed a resolution addressing voter suppression by claiming that Congressional members were suffering actual voter suppression because they had to walk through metal detectors and wait in lines to enter the chamber.
“Mr Speaker I rise in opposition to HR 1. While we’re talking about voter suppression and long lines, I’d like to point out that there is real voter suppression that happens right here in Congress,” Ms Greene said.
“Many members of Congress have to wait in long lines to enter the chamber, going through metal detectors, emptying our pockets, and being treated very disrespectfully.”
