Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has reportedly made a number of contentious statements and taken controversial acts, the most recent of which was the Georgia Republican showing sanitized pornographic photographs of the president’s son Hunter Biden during a hearing last week.

First-term Rep. Becca Balint (D-Vt.) is sponsoring a motion to censure Greene.

Around 40 complaints about Greene are included in the resolution that was presented on Tuesday, many of which provide a record of the particular statements she made and the dates on which they were made.

“For me, censuring Rep. Taylor Greene is about the health of our democracy and faith in government. Her antisemitic, racist, transphobic rhetoric has no place in the House of Representatives,” Balint said in a statement.

Along with other complaints, the resolution quotes Greene’s comparison of COVID-19 vaccines to the Nazis ordering Jews to wear stars.

According to Balint’s office, the resolution was introduced as privileged, which entitles her to make a privileged move in the future to compel floor action on the bill. Balint is not currently planning to introduce a privileged motion to need a vote.

Shortly after the resolution’s presentation on Tuesday, Greene dismissed the attack.

“I don’t know who this freshman Democrat is. They must have terrible fundraising numbers because they’re pulling some ridiculous stunt. Looks like four pages of slander, because I looked at the first few lines and I was like, ‘That’s not even true.’” Greene claimed.
