DEVELOPING: Mark Meadows files motion to OUST Boehner from leadership

AS REPORTED BY THE DAILY CALLER:

This is awesome. North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows has just filed a motion in the House to oust Speaker Boehner from leadership:

POLITICO – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has filed a motion to try to force Speaker John Boehner from his leadership post. The move, called a motion to vacate the chair, represents a new level of opposition to GOP leadership from the conservative wing of the House Republican Conference. The motion can be postponed for several days before consideration.

The resolution was filed late Tuesday afternoon, just one day before the House was slated to depart for its summer recess.

The resolution states that Boehner has tried to “consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 members of Congress and the people they represent.” It accuses the speaker of using the “legislative calendar to create crises for the American people, in order to compel members to vote for legislation.”
