That left it to Democrats, who were joined by 11 Republicans, in casting a ballot to strip her of her council tasks.
As a legislative up-and-comer, Greene posted a photograph in 2020 of herself with a weapon close to pictures of Ocasio-Cortez and individual Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.
