Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI) introduced a resolution for the censuring of Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) following his indictment for pulling a Capitol fire alarm just before the House was set to seek resolution to continue funding the government.

“The House of Representatives censures Jamaal Bowman, Representative of the 16th Congressional District of New York, for violating District of Columbia Criminal Code Section 22-1319 by knowingly causing a false alarm of fire in an attempt to obstruct official proceedings of the House,” the resolution read.

“Bowman will forthwith present himself in the well of the House of Representatives for the pronouncement of censure,” it added.

“Today as I was rushing to make a vote, I came to a door that is usually open for votes but today would not open,” Bowman said in a statement after the incident.

“I am embarrassed to admit that I activated the fire alarm, mistakenly thinking it would open the door. I regret this and sincerely apologize for any confusion this caused,” Bowman had stated.
