The simmering feud between Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) boiled over into a confrontation in a women’s restroom at the U.S. Capitol over Kevin McCarthy’s Speaker ballot debacle, sources told The Daily Beast.
According to the sources, the bickering over their perceived loyalty to the Republican leader took place on January 3, on the first day of the new Congress, in the House speaker’s lobby ladies’ room.
“Greene questioned Boebert’s loyalty to McCarthy, and after a few words were exchanged, Boebert stormed out,” one source familiar with the argument told The Beast.
The Georgia lawmaker reportedly came out of a bathroom stall and confronted Boebert, who had been unaware Greene was in the restroom, for taking campaign money from McCarthy and then turning against him in the speaker voting.
“You were okay taking millions of dollars from McCarthy but you refuse to vote for him for Speaker, Lauren?” Greene said, another source said.
“Don’t be ugly,” Lauren shot back before “running out like a little schoolgirl,” the first source said.
Greene did not respond to requests for comment and Boebert declined to comment on the matter, saying only, “See you later — bye.”
Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) allegedly witnessed the squabble match, but she declined three separate times to describe what she saw “in any way, shape or form.”
“What happens in the ladies room stays in the ladies room,” the Michigan Democrat said, according to The Daily Beast.
