McCarthy on Democrat Pulling Fire Alarm Before House Vote on Bill to Avert Government Shutdown
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) called for an investigation into Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) after the latter allegedly pulled a fire alarm in a Capitol office building on Saturday to delay vote on a stopgap bill to avert a government shutdown. “I think Ethics should look at this,” the Speaker said at a press conference after the bill passed the House. He noted Mr. Bowman’s action was caught on camera and said it “should not go without punishment.”
