Rep. Cori Bush needed to transfer her workplace away from Greene’s as a consequence of threats and safety issues. Greene has already been stripped of her committee assignments by the total Home.
The issue is that it takes a two-thirds vote to expel a member, so so long as Kevin McCarthy and different Home Republicans refuse to vote for her expulsion, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats shouldn’t have sufficient votes to take away the unwell safety menace from the Home.
Taylor Greene seems to be unwell and unfit to serve within the Home, and she or he should be expelled earlier than one thing tragic occurs.
