ATLANTA — A California congressman says he will introduce a resolution on the House floor to expel a north Georgia lawmaker from the House of Representatives “in light of numerous reports revealing her repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism and political violence.”
Rep. Jimmy Gomez, a Democrat from California, said Wednesday that he will file the resolution against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican who represents Georgia’s 14th District.
Just in the last couple of weeks, Greene has been suspended from Twitter for spreading false information about the 2020 election and trying to impeach newly elected President Joe Biden.
Channel 2 investigative reporter Justin Gray also uncovered social media posts made by Greene, backing false conspiracy theories about deadly school shootings.
“As if it weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories that the September 11 attacks were an inside job and the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was staged, a string of recent media reports has now confirmed that Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House, members of Congress, and former President Barack Obama,” Gomez said in a statement on Wednesday. “Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.”

A political newcomer, Greene was elected to the House in November. She has also embraced QAnon, a far-right U.S. conspiracy theory centered around the debunked belief that former President Donald Trump is fighting a secret campaign against “deep-state” enemies and a child sex trafficking ring of satanic pedophiles and cannibals.
In previous videos and posts, she has attacked everything from the Black Lives Matter movement to the use of face masks to protect against the coronavirus.
“Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body,” Gomez said.
The 14th Congressional District seat opened up after Republican Rep. Tom Graves announced last year that he wasn’t seeking reelection.
Greene’s Democratic opponent then dropped out of the race, leaving her unopposed after she won the primary in June.
