73 Lawmakers Unveil Resolution To Expel Marjorie Taylor Greene From Congress

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who has drawn scorn from members of both parties for her past comments and rogue procedural moves, could face expulsion from Congress as Democrats unveil a new Resolution to expel her from the legislative body.

The resolution is co-sponsored by 72 House Democrats – nearly a third of the House Democratic caucus – including prominent members like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the former chair of the Democratic National Committee.

“There is nothing more threatening to Democrats than strong Republican Women!!!,” Greene said in response to reports of the motion. “Democrats are trying overturn the will of the People who voted for both myself and @millermeeks. House Democrats have declared war on House Republican Women.”

Green’s comments were in response to Fox News reports that California Democrat Jimmy Gomez will introduce a “privileged” resolution on Friday.

A supermajority of two-thirds of the House of Representatives is needed to expel a member, meaning Democrats would need a significant number of Republicans to cross the aisle.

Gomez (D-Calif.) plans to introduce a resolution on Friday that would expel Greene, who was ousted from committees last month over offensive past comments, including social media posts promoting conspiracy theories.

The move is unlikely to succeed despite 73 lawmakers already signing on. A supermajority of two-thirds of the House of Representatives is needed to expel a member, meaning Democrats would need a significant number of Republicans to cross the aisle.
