Progressives call for swift Boebert punishment

“She needs to be removed from her committees, absolutely,” Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) said of Boebert on Wednesday.

Boebert, walking past Bush on the Capitol steps as she spoke to Axios, shot her a glance but remained silent. Her office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Bush expressed hope “there are enough of us, or we can mobilize enough of us, to help leadership to see why this is a must.” She said House leaders should act immediately, rather than “waiting to see what the Republicans will do.”

What they’re saying: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a fellow member of The Squad with Omar, told Axios there are a “number of options before us,” including censure and stripping committee assignments.
