Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R‑GA) upstaged her legislative rival Rep. Cori Bush (D‑MO) on Tuesday by defeating her amendment that would allow violent convicted felons to vote in national elections.
Bush attempted to slip in an amendment to H.R. 1 that would have expanded the voting rights of violent convicted felons and make it more difficult for quality public officials to be elected. By putting the measure to a vote, Greene was able to kill the measure.
“Rep. Cori Bush’s ‘Violent Convicted Criminals Can Vote’ amendment to H.R. 1 was just soundly defeated in bipartisan fashion on the House floor,” Greene announced in a press release.
