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.”
