(KTNV) — Today, Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after becoming an original co-sponsor of the resolution to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress:
“Congresswoman Greene has encouraged executing politicians who disagree with her,” said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). “Her presence on the House floor is a legitimate security concern. She made the deranged allegation that 1 October – the darkest day in our city’s history – was a government plot. The victims’ families, the survivors, and our first responders deserve far better than having that vile ignorance spewed in the halls of Congress. She has openly embraced similarly disgraceful conspiracy theories about September 11th and the Parkland school shooting.
“I did not make this decision lightly. In my ten years of public service in the U.S. House of Representatives, I have never called for the removal of anyone from Congress. This time is different.”
The text of the resolution states:
In the Matter of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Resolved, That pursuant to article I, section 5, clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives.
A video recorded by Greene about the 1 October mass shooting resurfaced recently and went viral on social media. READ STORY HERE.
Greene has also come under fire for videos related to the shooting in Parkland, Florida, and for a variety of posts on social media.
During Nancy Pelosi's weekly press conference this week, the California Democrat denounced GOP leaders for placing freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on the House education committee.
