(RepublicanInformer.com)- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has complained to the House Ethics Committee, accusing a Democrat staffer of breaking the rules of the chamber by vandalizing posters outside her congressional office that expressed support for there being only two genders. Greene’s complaint alleges that the Democrat staffer defaced the posters on multiple occasions.
Timothy Hysom, the chief of staff for Democratic Representative Jake Auchincloss of Massachusetts, was seen on a surveillance video by Capitol Police in March vandalizing the posters. Although he was named on an arrest warrant, prosecutors decided not to pursue the case, according to the records kept by the Capitol Police.
The letter that Greene, a Republican from Georgia, sent this week to the chairman of the Ethics committee, Ted Deutch, and the committee’s ranking member, Rep. Jackie Walorski, stated that Hysom’s behavior did break House rules and that he ought to be punished for it.
According to what she wrote, every representative should be protected in their person and property while on the grounds of the Capitol and in the different House office buildings. Yet, throughout the past half a year, Timothy Hysom, Chief-of-Staff for Representative Jake Auchincloss, has frequently destroyed posters hanging outside of her congressional office.
“Specifically, Hysom utilized many nasty statements to disparage my truly held religious views that there are only two genders formed in the image of God,” Greene stated.
“This is a conviction I have had for as long as I can remember,” she said.
According to Greene, Hysom’s actions went against the rule that employees of the House “shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House” and “adhere to the highest moral principles… engage in no business with the Government that is inconsistent with the performance of governmental duties.”
Repeatedly defacing the property of another member of Congress comes squarely within the category of actions that any standard code of ethics would expressly prohibit. By logical extension, Hysom’s activities directly violate the law’s intent, which states that public officials must “adhere to the highest moral values and refrain from engaging in non-governmental business while performing their responsibilities.”
Hysom has not responded to demands for comment, but a spokeswoman for Auchincloss has written a statement stating that the defacing has taken place but considering it as a criminal act is “crazy.”
Nothing the left does is criminal. Everything the right does is.
