The House of Representatives has formally reprimanded Rep. Jamaal Bowman for pulling a fire alarm without cause during a dramatic floor vote.

The House voted 214 to 191 to censure him, with three Democrats joining Republicans in the decision.

The incident occurred during intense negotiations to avert a government shutdown. (Trending: Elon Musk Condemns Arrest Of Jan 6 Protester)

Bowman, a member of the progressive “Squad,” denied doing it on purpose and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.

The censure motion was introduced by a Republican, and a Democratic attempt to stop it failed.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries criticized the focus on the issue, accusing Republicans of wasting time.

“We’re all on the House floor wasting time talking about fire alarms. Not the economy, not inflation, not affordable housing, not lowering costs, not the gun violence epidemic that continues to claim the lives of our young people all across America,” Jeffries said.
