Two parents whose sons were killed at Sandy Hook School have issued a statement expressing opposition to the appointment of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene to the House Education and Labor Committee.
Mark Barden and Nicole Hockley cite her previous statements that the shooting was a staged event and berating a teenage survivor of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas high school shooting while he lobbied in Washington DC.
5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes, a former Teacher of the Year and member of the Education Committee, sent a letter to her colleagues asked that Greene not be seated. Hayes says her conduct is antithetical to the work of the Committee, and that House Democrats and Republicans have a moral responsibility to bring forth healthy debate and work towards solutions.
Hayes says Greene’s words and actions disqualify her from that privilege.
