Just for the record, the three Republicans representing Iowa in congress at this moment voted to support congress member and Qanon believer Marjorie Taylor Greene to keep her committee assignments.
That is Ashley Hinson, Randy Feenstra and the hopefully temporary Mariannette Miller-Meeks.
That is two votes taken and two votes that appear to be against what many would term Iowa values.
When Donald Trump incited an insurrection to overthrow congress and keep himself as president these three amigos supported Trump in his efforts by voting NOT to impeach him.
Now the question is whether a member who believes in wild conspiracy theories including things like “Jewish space lasers” and that the murders at Majorie Stoneman Douglas High School were a “false flag’ operation (among many conspiratorial beliefs) deserves to be allowed to make laws. Once again, Iowa three amigos said yes Marjorie Taylor Greene should be allowed on committees.
Are these the views of Iowans? Lord, I hope not. One of Iowa’s core values has been to stay away from the extremes. Trump and Greene are the very extremes in American politics. Allowing the extremes to fester, even supporting the extremes is bad for the country and Iowa.
