Republican Rep. Rich McCormick’s resolution to censure Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib for what he calls "promoting false narratives regarding the Oct. 7, 2023, Hamas attack on Israel, and calling for the destruction of the State of Israel” passed on Tuesday night. 

The final vote was 234-188 with 22 Democrats joining Republicans in approving the resolution.

The resolution had passed a procedural hurdle in the House earlier on Tuesday to move forward after the Democrats' attempt to table the motion failed 208-213.

The final vote on the resolution was expected on Wednesday but occurred on Tuesday night.

“My resolution is factual, measured, and has significant support. I am hopeful that it will pass this body with bipartisan support,” McCormick posted Monday on the social media platform X.

Tlaib, a Michigan lawmaker, is a Palestinian-American who is frequently critical of Israel and its government's politics.

McCormick’s resolution follows one that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., filed last week. Greene's resolution was ultimately rejected in the House. She has since reintroduced an amended version of that privileged resolution.
