Amodei Votes to Protect 1 October Denier Marjorie Taylor Greene

Today, Congressman Mark Amodei put party over country when he voted against stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments despite years of xenophobic and anti-Semitic comments and using her platform to incite violence, perpetuate dangerous claims, and spread conspiracy theories.

Among a myriad of blatant lies and false accusations, Rep. Greene tried to claim 1 October–the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history that took the lives of 58 innocent concertgoers–was staged

Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement:

“Congressman Amodei made it very clear who he represents in Congress and it isn’t everyday Nevadans. He would rather protect a QAnon conspiracy theorist than hold another legislator accountable for using their platform to spread damaging and repulsive lies. Amodei has contorted himself at acrobatic levels to avoid choosing a faction within the GOP but as the fringe becomes the majority, Amodei couldn’t be more obvious about his efforts to position himself among the extremists.”
