The House voted on Thursday to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her committee posts, over inflammatory and violent remarks she has made and supported.

The vote was 230-199, with 11 Republicans joining Democrats to kick Greene off the Education and Labor and Budget committees. Greene has a history of making racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Muslim remarks, and has also endorsed the execution of Democratic leaders, said there was no evidence a plane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, pushed the QAnon conspiracy, and harassed school shooting survivors.
