The House Freedom Caucus expelled MP Marjorie Taylor Greene at the end of June, the first official expulsion in the history of the group of conservative lawmakers.
According to The New York Post, Republican aides confirmed Greene was kicked out of the group just weeks after she insulted fellow Republican Lauren Boebert as a “little slut” in the House.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene was voted out of the House Freedom Caucus for some of the things she’s done. I think the way she referred to a fellow member is probably not the way we expect our members to refer to others. colleagues, especially women,” Rep. Andy Harris told Politico, adding that it was “an appropriate move.
The congresswoman, who joined the Freedom Caucus after being elected to Congress in 2020, lashed out at Boebert in mid-June after the Coloradan introduced a resolution to impeach President Biden that Greene considered identical to the articles she she filed in May.
“I’ve donated to you, I’ve defended you. But you’ve been nothing but a bitch to me. You copied my impeachment articles after I asked you to co-sponsor them,” Greene told Boebert in an exchange recorded by C-SPAN.
“Okay, Marjorie, we’re done,” Boebert replied with a shrug.
Boebert forced a full House vote on his resolution, which ended up being sent back to House committees.
“I’ve filed articles of impeachment, and every time I do, along with my other bills, I reach out to all my fellow Republicans and ask for their support by asking for their co-sponsorship because I cosponsored a lot of other Republican bills,” Greene later said. to Fox News. “I had asked him to co-sponsor my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden over the border, and he never responded and apparently refused to do so.”
Boebert later told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he did not run for Congress to “get into fights with people.”
“Sean, I didn’t put my life on hold and leave my four children and my grandson to come here and fight people. I came here to legislate and be effective for Coloradans, Coloradans who are suffering from the policies of the Democrats. Marjorie is not my enemy. Joe Biden’s politics, the Democrats, that’s my enemy that I’m fighting right now,” Boebert said.
