A resolution to censure Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a member of the Squad, over her “anti-Semitic beliefs” was tabled Wednesday by the U.S. House, with nearly two dozen Republicans voting with Democrats against the resolution.
The resolution was introduced by Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. The House did not end up voting on the legislation as 23 Republicans voted with Democrats on a motion to table the vote. 13 Republicans did not vote. The vote was 222-186.
“I just introduced my resolution to censure Rashida Tlaib as privileged to force a House vote in two legislative days,” Greene wrote in a tweet after introducing the resolution. “Tlaib led a pro-Hamas insurrection into the Capitol complex, has repeatedly displayed her anti-Semitic beliefs, and shown her hatred for Israel. She must be held accountable and censured.”
Before the vote, Greene tweeted, “Tonight, the House will vote on my resolution to censure Jihad Squad member and leader of the Hamasurrection Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib must be censured for her anti-American, antisemitic hatred. I hope every member of the House, R or D, votes to hold this behavior accountable.”
Greene also slammed Republicans who she thought would vote against the resolution, without mentioning their names.
“That would be a HUGE mistake,” she said.
