WI's GOP US Reps all backed Greene. Did they applaud her, too?

Wisconsin's five Republican US House members flunked this week's test on decency, law and order.

These Wisconsin members of the House of Representatives - Grothman, Gallagher, Steil, Tiffany and Fitzgerald - refused to join 11 of their more-principled GOP colleagues who voted with Democrats and removed US Rep., conspiracy-theorist and violence cheerleader Majorie Taylor Greene, (R-FL) from the House committees to which her party's leaders had assigned her.

Will hometown media outlets ask their WI GOP reps  why they believe Greene should have continued to serve on official Congressional committees that help set workplace, education and federal spending policies for all the people of the country?

Rep. Scott Fitzgerald was among Wisconsin's five GOP House members who tried but failed to keep the conspiracy and violence cheerleader Majorie Taylor Greene, (R-FL), seated on House committees which manage labor, budget and education matters.

It has been reported that some GOP House members behind closed doors gave her a standing ovation

Greene denied speculating on Facebook that a prominent Jewish family started a devastating California wildfire via a laser beamed from space, even though there are photos of the now-deleted post.  

She didn’t back down from claims that mass school shootings were staged and insisted she knew that from personal experience 

Some members of the GOP caucus reportedly gave Greene a standing ovation when she finished speaking.

You can decide if this account includes anything that sounds like personal contrition or fitness for duty in the US Congress alongside Wisconsin's delegation: 

Greene also said she didn’t feel like she owed Parkland massacre survivor David Hogg an apology — following a video that surfaced of her confronting him in 2019 before she was elected to Congress.

In a later interview, Greene boasted about the encounter, calling the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student-turned-activist an “idiot” who “only talks when he is scripted.”

And today she expanded her high-profile No-Apology-Tour by calling House members "morons" for voting to remove her from committees.

Ms. Greene’s determination to remain in the spotlight obliterated even the slim hopes of House Republican leaders that Ms. Greene, empowered by her devotion to Mr. Trump, would quiet down in the name of party unity after her rebuke.
