MTG Shows How Easy It Would Have Been For Bowman Not To Pull The Fire Alarm

Democratic New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman is under investigation for pulling a fire alarm in the Capitol, which triggered an evacuation and delayed a vote to fund the government.

  • Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene released a video Monday showing how easy it would have been for Democratic New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman to avoid pulling a fire alarm ahead of a House vote.
  • In the video posted to Twitter, Greene walks through the Cannon House office building to show how she and Bowman get from their offices to the U.S. Capitol to vote on the House floor. In the video, Greene approaches a fire alarm and then shows a pair of exit doors next to the alarm.
  • “Nowhere on the fire alarm does it say ‘pull the fire alarm to open the exit door,’ and I think ex-principal teachers know better,” Greene says. Bowman, who served as principal of a New York City middle school before running for Congress, claimed on Saturday that he “thought the alarm would open the door.”
