(WASHINGTON) – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) issued the following statement after voting no to tabling the latest Motion to Vacate Speaker Mike Johnson:

“Earlier today, Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson refused to say he would accept the results of the 2024 election, effectively saying he is willing to silence our voices at the ballot box. Speaker Mike Johnson has made it clear that he is more interested in the political games orchestrated by our failed former president than leading on behalf of the American people. The Speaker of the House Representatives should not play political games with our Democracy.”
