The U.S. House of Representatives censured Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Tuesday for her endorsement of genocide against the state of Israel.
22 Democrats and 212 Republicans voted in favor of the censure, with four Republicans voting against it, in a tally of 234–188. Six members abstained from voting, while four members cast present votes.
Tlaib was criticized in the motion to censure her for calling for the destruction of the state of Israel and promoting false narratives regarding the October 7, 2023, Hamas attack on Israel.
“Whereas Representative Tlaib has repeatedly displayed conduct entirely unbecoming of a Member of the House of Representatives by calling for the destruction of the state of Israel and dangerously promoting false narratives regarding a brutal, large-scale terrorist attack against civilian targets inside the sovereign territory of a major non-NATO ally while hundreds of Israeli and American hostages remain in terrorist captivity: Now, therefore, be it.” the resolution noted.
Reps. Steve Cohen (TN), Jim Costa (CA), Angie Craig (MN), Don Davis (NC), Lois Frankel (FL), Jared Golden (ME), Daniel Goldman (NY), Josh Gottheimer (NJ), Greg Landsman (OH), Susie Lee (NV), Kathy Manning (NC), Jared Moskowitz (FL), Wiley Nickel (NC), Kris Pappas (NH), Marie Perez (WA), Pat Ryan (NY), Brad Schneider (IL), Kim Schrier (WA), Darren Soto (FL), Richie Torres (NY), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL), and Frederica Wilson (FL) are among the Democrats who voted to censure Tlaib.
