Republicans Draft Resolution to Expel Rep. Jamaal Bowman from Congress

 October 1, 2023

In a move that has garnered widespread attention, Republicans have drafted a resolution to expel Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) from Congress. The resolution comes after Bowman allegedly pulled a fire alarm to delay a vote on a crucial bill aimed at averting a government shutdown.

The action is seen as a severe breach of conduct, warranting the most serious form of disciplinary action available to the House for its members.

The Gravity of the Situation

The resolution was authored by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) and is expected to be formally filed on Monday when the House is next in session. Expulsion from the House is a rare and severe measure; only five members have been expelled in the history of the United States Congress.

Investigations and Repercussions

Bowman's alleged actions are currently under investigation by both the House Administration Committee and the U.S. Capitol Police. The incident has elicited widespread condemnation from Republican colleagues.

Rep. Lisa McClain is also drafting a motion to censure Bowman, a step considered less severe than expulsion but still significant. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) emphasized that the Ethics Committee should look into the matter, stating, "This is an embarrassment. You're elected to be a member of Congress."


The drafted resolution to expel Rep. Jamaal Bowman has sent shockwaves through the political landscape. It serves as a reminder of the high standards of conduct expected from elected officials. As the investigations continue, the resolution is poised to be a pivotal moment in holding members of Congress accountable for their actions.
