Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Will No Longer Sit on the House Education Committee

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green was stripped of her committee appointments by the House of Representatives on Thursday. That includes her appointment to the Education and Labor Committee, which she was assigned to despite a history of incendiary statements about two high-profile school shootings.

In the past, Greene has suggested that the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were hoaxes. She also publicly berated school shooting survivor David Hogg, then 17, for his gun control advocacy efforts following the massacre at his high school.

Thursday’s House vote was 230-199, with only 11 Republicans voting in favor of her removal. Interestingly, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) — who is facing her own challenge from the extremist wing of the party — was not among them.
