The GOP-led House is pushing to censure Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) for pulling a fire alarm in a congressional office building.

The motion to table the measure failed, and a final vote is expected soon.

Bowman took a plea deal for the incident but denies pulling the alarm as a delay tactic. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“Unfortunately, Republicans are here trying to rehash an already litigated matter, a matter in which the Republican-controlled House committee of ethics decided to not proceed with any further investigation,” Bowman said.

“This is an insult to the people I was elected to represent.”

Lisa McClain wrote, “Actions must be met with consequences. Rep. Bowman pulling a fire alarm to curtail an act of Congress was unacceptable and against the law.”

“For that, he must stand before Congress and accept Censure.”

The censure is seen as a formal rebuke and is less severe than expulsion.
