Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene just got a lot more downtime

After several controversial statements, including claiming that the Parkland 2018 shooting didn’t happen, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been removed from congress’s education and labor and budget posts.

Congress voted 230-199 for the removals with 11 Republicans siding with Democrats, including South Florida Representatives Mario Díaz-Balart, Carlos A. Gimenez and Maria Elvira Salazar.

The move came in response to Greene’s past comments approving of QAnon conspiracy theories, her advocacy of violence against Democratic lawmakers, her skepticism that the Pentagon was attacked on 9/11, and her suggestions that the Parkland and Sandy Hook school shootings were staged “false flags.” On the House floor yesterday, instead of apologizing, Greene would only admit that “I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true.”

In a statement, Rep. Carlos A. Gimenez, former Miami-Dade County mayor, said he voted to remove Green from committee assignments as her “comments and intents to spread lies and conspiracies must not be tolerated.” He continued, “When she goes after students, victims, and survivors of senseless gun violence as in the case of the Parkland High School shooting, she loses all credibility as someone assigned to crafting policies and behavior to prevent us from governing responsibility.”

Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar, another congresswoman representing South Florida, said in a statement that she voted yes as “everyone in Congress must be held to the same high standard.”

Max Schachter, father of Parkland victim Alex, told NBC Miami that listening to her denial of the shooting has been “very very hard to deal with, and I’m glad she will have less of a platform.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
