Heck of a Leak: Motion to Vacate Found at Baby Changing Station in Capitol Restroom

Either someone was careless while changing diapers or Congressman Matt Gaetz’s team has ironically leaked important news about Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy’s future.

Leftwing journalist Matt Laslo claims to have found a resolution for McCarthy to vacate his seat at a baby changing station in a restroom under the House floor.

According to Laslo:

Found on a baby changing table in restroom underneath House floor: “Declaring the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives to be vacant,” from Rep. @mattgaetz, Sept. 15, 2023, 11:22am

Here’s the two-line resolution:

According to The Gateway Pundit:

The Gateway Pundit reported that Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) slammed House Speaker Kevin McCarthy this morning for his “eight months of inaction” on Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family. Gaetz further called on McCarthy to sign a subpoena for Hunter Biden’s records and testimony that he took the initiative to draft.

This comes exactly one week after Gaetz threatened to remove Speaker McCarthy for being out of compliance with the agreement that allowed him to assume his role, not holding the Bidens accountable, and advancing Biden’s inflationary spending, among other things.

Under new House rules, it only takes one member of Congress from either party to bring a ‘Motion to Vacate,’ which forces a vote on removing the Speaker of the House.

It has been widely believed Gaetz and over a dozen other Republican members of Congress have already decided to challenge McCarthy’s position. It’s not a question of if but when, and the timing seems to circle around the budget battle currently taking place ahead of the October 1 government shutdown.

It is unlikely the House will vote to remove McCarthy unless Democrats make a strategic play for the sake of turmoil. It would take every Democrat plus Team Gaetz to get the majority and force the speaker out. Democrats seem very pleased with what McCarthy has done — and more importantly what he has not done — during his eight months as Speaker.

What do you think? Will this motion be filed? If so, when? And if it is, will it bear fruit? Sound off on The Liberty Daily Substack.
