Are the Republicans forcing a vote on censuring?
According to an article published by The Hill,
“After Republicans forced the party-line vote on Waters this week, Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) circulated a letter renewing his effort to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from Congress and urging more fellow Democrats to sign onto his resolution.”
And just very briefly before, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) warned:
“As my friend the leader knows, we haven’t had all the resolutions that have been introduced on my side of the aisle,” Hoyer said as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) prepared to trigger the vote to censure Waters.
“This makes it harder, however, not to proceed on numerous resolutions on my side of the aisle,” he added.
What’s the deal?
It’s an actual threat that would make lawmakers have fewer qualms about imposing punishments as severe as censure or expulsion against each other as they continue to harbor fury over the insurrection more than three months ago.
It is also a polarized political reflection…
On that issue, Gomez also pointed to what he suspects Greene was initially planning…
“Everyone – including House Republican leadership – knew this stunt was nothing more than an effort to promote white supremacy in the United States Congress,” Gomez wrote in a “Dear Colleague” letter.
“From her open support for political violence against our colleagues to her brazen promotion of anti-Semitism and racism, there is no shortage of reasons as to why Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is unfit to serve in this legislative body. I hope everyone – both Republicans and Democrats – will join me in this endeavor to ensure our collective safety and preserve our democracy,” Gomez continued.
In the meantime, Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a resolution to remove Waters from Congress.
“This is nothing new from Maxine Waters. She has been inciting violence and terrorism for the last 29 years,” Greene said in a statement.
“Now, because of who I am, the right-wing and members of Congress who subscribe to the views of groups like QAnon, the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the KKK have targeted me. Those very people have done so to divert attention from the fact that they aided and abetted a violent, domestic terrorist insurrection led by Donald Trump,” Waters wrote in a Los Angeles Times op-ed.
