(PartiallyPolitics.com) – First-term Rep. Becca Balint (D-Vt.) has introduced a resolution that would censure Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) following her recent controversial actions and remarks, especially as she recently displayed censored sexual images of Hunter Biden during a House hearing.
The resolution includes approximately 40 grievance points relating to Greene, many of which relate to specific remarks she has made. The points include specific dates and times when the statements were made. Additionally, the resolution also opposes Greene’s decision to display the images of Hunter Biden during the hearing.
Other issues the points cover include Greene’s visit of Jan. 6 inmates in a Washington jail which she had referred to as the “patriot wing.” She had also previously referred to Congress members that were Muslim as belonging to the “Jihad Squad.”
Greene had also in the past attended an event that was connected to white nationalism. However, she argued that she did not know about this connection and proceeded to condemn the leader of the group. She had also controversially claimed that mandating pandemic vaccinations was in essence the same thing as the Nazis mandating that all Jews wear a David Star.
Balint in a statement she issued said that censuring Greene would help ensure the health of the country’s democracy and would address Greene’s transphobic, racist, and antisemitic remarks which do not belong to the House of Representatives. The resolution is privileged which means that Balint will have the opportunity to make a privileged motion in the future that would force the House floor to take action on the resolution. However, Balint is not intending on forcing a vote as of yet.
