WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Franklin (R-Fla.) released the following statement on Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene:

“I fully condemn past comments made by my colleague from Georgia. QAnon, racism and violence must be rejected and have no place in America. The comments made by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green prior to her election to Congress were wholly inappropriate. She delivered unequivocal denunciations of her past statements and expressed remorse to her freshman colleagues, the House Republican Conference and the American public on the House floor.

“The proper judge and jury of her actions are the voters of the 14th District of Georgia.

“The precedent set today by House Democrats is not applied equally to Members on their side of the aisle.  This action is a hypocritical attempt to further divide and distract Americans instead of working to address the global pandemic and restore our economy.”
