House GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the most controversial members of Congress. Greene, a Republican representative of the 14th congressional district of Georgia, has come under fire from Republicans and Democrats alike, especially as the latter party digs up questionable details from Greene’s past.

In February 2021, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a sit-down with Greene regarding public statements she made prior to her congressional tenure. This arrived shortly before the House of Representatives voted to pull Greene’s committee tasks.

One month later, the Democrat-led House is looking to do much more than simply removing the Georgia Republican’s committee assignments; according to Washington Examiner, a resolution to boot Greene from Congress altogether is set to arrive on the House floor today.

The Push to Remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress

Democrat Rep. Jimmy Gomez is the initiator of legislation to expel Rep. Greene from Congress. According to a spokesperson for the California Democrat, he’s attempted to garner support from House Republicans; however, none are on board with expelling Greene from Congress at this time.

Gomez argues that Greene poses a signficant danger to Congress. This danger, according to Gomez, asserts that Greene has a record of backing domestic terrorism, sedition, and politically-motivated violence.

In order to expel Rep. Greene from Congress, two-thirds of House members would have to get on board with Gomez’s resolution. This is virtually guaranteed not to happen, seeing as Democrats are only in control of the lower House chamber.

Pushback from Rep. Greene

On Thursday, Greene responded to news that Rep. Gomez and other House Democrats seek to give her the boot from Congress. The Georgia GOP representative declared on Twitter that “strong Republican women” pose an immense threat to Democrats.

Rep. Greene furthermore went on to claim that the resolution for her congressional expulsion is tantamount to “overturning” the Georgia voters’ will, seeing as they got her elected. Finally, Greene concluded her tweet by stating that House Democrats have now “declared war” on women in the GOP House.

Since news of Gomez’s upcoming resolution, several Democrats have taken to social media to express their support for Greene’s explusion. Republicans, however, are much less supportive and more likely to vote against the resolution.
