Greene, R-Fla., called a Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivor a “coward,” sympathized with QAnon conspiracy theories and liked comments on Facebook that alluded to the murder of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, leading to Republicans denouncing her words and some Democrats calling for her to be expelled.
House Ethics Chairman Ted Deutch — who represents the Florida district that includes Parkland, where Stoneman Douglas is located — on Thursday said that Greene should not “have a public platform to further spread dangerous lies” as a “Member of Congress.”
