Some Republicans aim to have Rep. Jamaal Bowman expelled after fire alarm stunt

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), the House Democrat caught red-handed pulling a fire alarm in what many believed to be a foolish attempt to delay a vote on a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown, now faces an uncertain future in the lower chamber. 

According to Breitbart, Republicans have drafted a resolution to expel Bowman from the House, which, if successful, would make him a member of a tiny club of members who've been expelled -- only five so far in U.S. history.

On Monday, the resolution to expel Bowman will be formally filed. It was authored by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY).

She made clear in a recent X post that his actions warrant serious repercussions.

"This is the United States Congress, not a New York City high school. This action warrants expulsion & I’m introducing a resolution to do just that," she wrote.

Breitbart noted:

Bowman’s alleged actions are being investigated by the House Administration Committee and the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) and elicited widespread condemnation from his Republican colleagues.

Bowman embarrassed himself further in a statement saying that he believed the fire alarm was a method of opening an emergency exit.

Thanks to an exclusive Breitbart report, it later surfaced that Bowman tore down signs warning a "second floor door in the Cannon House Office Building was for emergency use only before pulling the fire alarm and running out through a different door on a different floor."

Some of his other Republican colleagues have drafted censure resolutions, a less-serious form of punishment in Congress.

Breitbart added:

However, what really seems to be going on here is that Democrats in the House were desperately trying any tactics they could—the motion to adjourn vote which failed, the House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries delaying using as much time as he could through his “magic minute” which allows the opposition leader to speak for as long as they like, and through disinformation their committee staffers were disseminating about the House GOP’s funding bill—in order to buy their counterparts in the Senate time to pass a Democrat funding measure.

With any luck, Republicans will do the right thing and punish him for his childish actions and subsequent lie to the American public.
