Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resolution to censure Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her anti-semitic comments and her encouraging pro-Hamas activists to storm the Cannon House building last month was voted on by the House on Wednesday.
Alaska Democrat Mary Peltola stuck with her fellow Democrats and voted against the censure of Tlaib, which was titled, “Censuring Representative Rashida Tlaib for antisemitic activity, sympathizing with terrorist organizations, and leading an insurrection at the United States Capitol Complex.”
Tlaib stood outside the Cannon Office Building on Oct. 18 and egged on pro-Hamas activists who stormed and took over the Cannon Building. Peltola votes with Tlaib nearly 80% of the time.
Rep. Greene had filed this resolution last week against Tlaib for inciting an unruly mob. The motion was ultimately tabled,
Ultimately, the resolution to censure Tlaib was killed when the motion was tabled, after another tit-for-tat resolution to censure Rep. Greene was withdrawn.
Peltola, in a partisan mood, also voted in favor of expelling Rep. George Santos, a Republican from New York who has been charged by the Justice Department but not yet convicted of with stealing people’s identities and making charges on his own donors’ credit cards without their authorization.
