New San Diego Rep. Sara Jacobs is joining Georgia Rep. Nikema Williams to introduce legislation to censure another Georgia Congresswoman, controversial Trump-supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Greene, who represents a rural district in northwest Georgia, has promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory, which advances the baseless claim that prominent Democrats are part of a cabal of pedophiles.

She caused new outrage this week with the revelation that she liked Facebook posts calling for the execution of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Williams-Jacobs resolution condemns Greene’s previous actions and statements, calls for her to be censured in the House chamber, and seeks her resignation from Congress.

The legislation to censure Greene requires only a simple majority vote to succeed.

“We saw on Jan. 6th what can happen when elected leaders use their positions of public trust to encourage and incite violence,” said Jacobs. “Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has repeatedly demonstrated her support for the execution of leaders of the Democratic Party, and her presence in Congress is a threat to our democracy, our institutions, and the safety of every person who works in the Capitol.”

Greene said some of her social media posts “did not represent my views” and accused CNN, which reported the Facebook likes, of “writing yet another hit piece on me focused on my time before running for political office.”

Jacobs and Williams, who are both Democrats, and Green, who is a Republican, are all newly elected members of Congress.
