Wisconsin’s delegation voted along party lines, as the House removed Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments.
The Georgia Republican offered excuses but no apologies on Thursday, for trafficking in the baseless and bizarre Q-Anon conspiracy theory, and calling for assassination of prominent Democrats in social media posts.
I woke up early this morning literally laughing thinking about what a bunch of morons the Democrats (+11) are for giving some one like me free time.
In this Democrat tyrannical government, Conservative Republicans have no say on committees anyway.
Oh this is going to be fun!

Wisconsin Republicans Bryan Steil, Glenn Grothmam, Mike Gallagher, Scott Fitzgerald and Tom Tiffany all voted no, Democrats Mark Pocan, Gwen Moore and Ron Kind yes.
Holding people accountable for being openly racist, Islamophobic, touting violent conspiracy theories, and threatening the safety of multiple members of Congress is not “cancel culture.”
But I know the @GOP has long forgotten what accountability means.

The 11 Republican yes votes included Adam Kinzinger, whose northern Illinois district abuts Steil’s district in Wisconsin.
