image for Petition Demanding Marjorie Taylor Greene's Expulsion Amasses Over 100,000 Signatures

A petition urging House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress has amassed more than 100,000 signatures in three days.

"I've been trained to assess threats and there is a serious threat to our country sitting in Congress that goes by the name of Marjorie Taylor Greene," Weissman wrote in the petition.

"I used to believe the Republican Party stood for decency, family values and good faith principles, but any continued support of Marjorie Taylor Greene, renders that demonstrably untrue.

Marjorie Taylor Greene must be immediately expelled from Congress.".

In his Twitter bio, Weissman describes himself as a former Donald Trump supporter and former Republican who is now a Democrat.

The petition gained traction as McCarthy, the House minority leader, and other Republicans condemned Greene following days of mounting criticism and calls from Democrats to discipline her.

Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. »

In the UK, where most Amazon workers are employed in the corporation’s so-called “Fulfillment Centers”, a poll late last year found that only 24% of respondents believed Amazon treated its workers fairly.

In Cambodia, former workers at Amazon’s supplier Hulu Garment are calling on Amazon to ensure their full legally owed severance.
