Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Green was reportedly locked out of her Twitter account just hours before House Democrats are set to take a vote on whether to expel her from the House.
The news was broken on Twitter by @Disclose.tv, a breaking news account that boasts more than 417,000 followers. While the account remains up and visible to users, including some 480,000 followers, the last post was made at least 13 hours ago as of this writing.
While it’s not yet clear what the congresswoman did to earn the boot from the social media platform, she’s been widely accused in the past of posting “conspiracy theories,” a “violation” that’s already seen a number of right-wing users banned from the site for expressing opposing views on issues like election fraud, COVID, and vaccines.
On the legislative front, Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) plans to introduce a resolution on Friday to expel Taylor-Green from Congress entirely, an effort joined by at least 73 Democrats to oust the newly-elected congresswoman from the position she’s held only since January. Taylor-Green has drawn the ire of many of her colleagues on the left for supposedly inciting violence, in part by backing former President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud.
Most recently, the Georgia Rep. garnered backlash on social media and from some members of the military when she erroneously referred to Guam, a U.S. territory, as a foreign country.
In the last post made to her account, MTG slammed Democrats' efforts to eject her from her seat, accusing them of attacking her "because I stand for the PEOPLE over politicians."
Democrats have declared me Public Enemy Number One.— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) March 18, 2021
Tomorrow, 72+ radical Socialists are introducing a resolution to EXPEL me from Congress.
And it’s all because I stand for the PEOPLE over politicians.

The bill is unlikely to go anywhere, needing a two-thirds vote in the House to pass. But the effort does mark the biggest push by Democrats to officially boot MTG from the body, making the timing of her Twitter ban all the more...interesting.
