Minnesota and National Report
Last night, newly elected Congresswoman and former Lt Governor and state Senator Michelle Fischbach (R-MN07) seemed to defend Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA14) under the sneaky issue of “precedent.” Fischbach may use this as an opportunity to challenge the idea of stripping away a member’s committee assignments as a means to hold a member in check, but when the person’s own conference fails to do the job what the body left with?
We are in unique times, the advance of QAnon conspiracies, by Taylor Greene, the espousing of clearly debunked lies of Donald J Trump (R) and harassment of survivors of the Parkland, FL massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School are disgusting and threaten the integrity of the institution. The placement of her on the Education and Labor Committee is a serious affront created by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA23). because he placed her there.
The tumultuous situation in the US House is a split decision and buttressed by the failure to self-police Taylor Greene, and secret ballot vote of 145-61 for retaining Rep Liz Cheney (R-WY01) as House Republican Conference Chair the 3rd highest position by the conference. We wonder what the vote would have been having been a public vote.
Again, we will state the Neo-Know Nothing Party is in Rare form, or maybe it’s just the Sedition Caucus bending others to their will.
