The House voted Thursday to remove 14th district Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments. All Democrats and 11 Republicans voted for the measure, despite Republican leader Kevin McCarthy’s opposition to it.
The motion was passed 230-199.
The move removed Greene from her role on the education and budget committees. Committee positions can determine the influence of individual lawmakers in their party.
Before the vote Greene apologized for several comments she had made in her past regarding school shootings and the staging of 9/11.
According to reports Greene told fellow GOP members that she had “stopped believing” in QAnon, a conspiracy theory claiming that former President Donald Trump was waging a clandestine war on a Satan-worshipping cabal of child-abusers and cannibals, sometime in 2018 after finding “misinformation, lies and things that weren’t true” in the group’s posts.
Georgia’s 14th congressional district includes: Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Murray, Paulding, Pickens, Polk, Walker and Whitfield Counties.
