Washington, DC – Marjorie Taylor Greene’s statement over the weekend threatening our already fragile democracy by advocating for an even more violent coup than what took place on January 6, 2021 should not be ignored. In light of Greene’s un-American extremism, DC Vote’s communications director Patrice Snow released the following statement:

“DC residents have a unique risk when political violence occurs or when a sitting member of Congress calls for American carnage via an armed insurrection. The teachers, nurses, lawyers, government workers, veterans, and students who call DC home deserve to live without the threat of violence from anyone, specifically an elected official who comes to DC to serve,” said Patrice Snow of DC Vote. “In light of the distinctive peril DC residents face, DC Vote is calling on Rep. Kevin McCarthy to deny Marjorie Taylor Greene a spot on the House Oversight Committee in the upcoming 118th Congress. In fact, Greene shouldn’t be permitted to sit on any committee so long as she is spewing dangerous rhetoric and won’t uphold the Constitution or the rule of law.”
