As calls grow for the House to do something about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Kevin McCarthy and House Republican leadership have gone dark.
House Democrats did all that they could do unilaterally when they stripped Greene of her committee assignments. It requires a two-thirds vote to expel a member, which means that as long as McCarthy continues to ghost the American people, Greene is safe from expulsion.
McCarthy thinks that laying low will get him the House Speakership, but he is tying himself to Greene with his silence.
Kevin McCarthy is giving the thumbs up to anti-Semitism, and by saying nothing, he is making sure that he will never be Speaker.
