The day after QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was stripped of her committee assignments due to spreading conspiracy theories and racist dogma, Greene began offering random motions to adjourn the legislative sessions of the House of Representatives just to obstruct the work of the day.

She did it again today.

From the Washington Post:

Her repeated motions to adjourn legislative debate over the past several weeks have forced members to scramble to the House floor and vote to remain in session, a move that is infuriating Democrats and, increasingly, members of her own party.

On Wednesday, she moved to adjourn as the House was preparing to debate the coronavirus relief package. The motion was defeated, with 40 Republicans joining Democrats in opposing it.

That marked the fourth time in recent weeks that Greene moved to adjourn. Each time, the number of Republicans voting against her increased, including some of the chamber’s most conservative members on Wednesday.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) told reporters he may propose a rule that only members of committees (which Greene is not) can make a motion to adjourn.
