Marjorie Taylor Greene dismisses 'drama club' Freedom Caucus after apparent ouster
She told reporters on Tuesday that she learned of the vote's apparent result through the press.
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene dismissed her apparent ouster from the conservative Freedom Caucus on Tuesday, contending that she was uninterested in pursuing squabbles with her fellow lawmakers.
"I’m not really concerned about it," she said of the reported vote to kick her out, according to The Hill. Maryland GOP Rep. Andy Harris, a member of the caucus said last week that it had voted to boot the Georgia lawmaker amid differences over House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's leadership and his negotiation of a compromise debt ceiling deal with President Joe Biden.
Greene's office told Just the News that she had not received confirmation of her ouster. She told reporters on Tuesday that she learned of the vote's apparent result through the press.
"Congratulations, y’all did a great job," she said. "And I guess the Freedom Caucus does a good job of talking to you more than your members."
"I don't have time for the drama club," she concluded.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry has reportedly attempted to contact Greene to inform her of the vote's result, though she has not returned his calls or answered the phone, according to The Hill.
