A group of 22 House Republicans sided with Democrats and voted to kill a resolution to censure Democratic Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib over her “anti-Semitic beliefs.”
The resolution was brought by Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
However, the House did not end up voting on the legislation after 22 Republicans voted on a motion to table the vote.
13 Republicans did not vote.
The vote was 222-186.
Not long after the vote, Rep. Van Orden changed his vote to no.
“I just introduced my resolution to censure Rashida Tlaib as privileged to force a House vote in two legislative days,” Greene wrote in a tweet after introducing the resolution.
“Tlaib led a pro-Hamas insurrection into the Capitol complex, has repeatedly displayed her anti-Semitic beliefs, and shown her hatred for Israel. She must be held accountable and censured.”
“List of feckless Republicans that voted WITH Democrats to table my censure resolution against Rashida Tlaib.”
“This is why Republicans NEVER do anything to stop the communists Democrats or ever hold anyone accountable!”

Before the vote, Greene tweeted:
“Tonight, the House will vote on my resolution to censure Jihad Squad member and leader of the Hamasurrection Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib must be censured for her anti-American, antisemitic hatred. I hope every member of the House, R or D, votes to hold this behavior accountable.”
Greene slammed Republicans who she thought would vote against the resolution.
“That would be a HUGE mistake,” she said.
Last month, Tlaib refused to answer a number of questions about Hamas’ murder of Israeli civilians.
“Congresswoman, Hamas terrorists have cut off babies’ heads and burned children alive, do you support Israel’s rights to defend themselves against this brutality?” a reporter asked her on video.
But Tlaib refused to answer the questions.
