The House on Wednesday blocked a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) brought by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) over her comments about the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.
Twenty-three Republicans joined Democrats and voted to table the resolution, effectively killing Greene’s effort to reprimand Tlaib. The final vote was 222 to 186.
Greene introduced the resolution to censure Tlaib last week, accusing her of “antisemitic activity, sympathizing with terrorist organizations and leading an insurrection” at a House office building in reference to the anti-war protest that took place on Capitol Hill last month in calling for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, according to the Hill.
Tlaib, the only Palestinian-American in Congress, spoke at the rally but did not join protesters inside the Capitol building.
After the vote, Greene lashed out at the 23 Republicans who opposed the effort to censure Tlaib.
“List of feckless Republicans that voted WITH Democrats to table my censure resolution against Rashida Tlaib,” Greene wrote on Twitter. “This is why Republicans NEVER do anything to stop the communists Democrats or ever hold anyone accountable!! PATHETIC.”
