First Time in U.S. History House Speaker Voted Out! (McCarthy-He Gone)

Date:

In a historic first move EVER a House Speaker “Kevin McCarthy” was voted out 216 to 210 and will no longer reside as House Speaker in Washington D.C. (Read the full article below for details).

Washington — “The House on Tuesday voted 216 to 210 to remove California Republican Kevin McCarthy from his position as House speaker , a historic move that comes days after he reached an 11th-hour deal to avert a government shutdown with the help of House Democrats.

The ouster came after Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz acted Monday night to force a vote on a motion to vacate the office of the speaker, following through on a threat he made last week to take the gavel from the California Republican while the threat of a shutdown loomed.

While other speakers throughout history have stepped down after losing the support of their party, McCarthy is the first to be ousted through a vote of the full House in the middle of a congressional term.”
