‘Multiple House Republicans are facing apparent retribution for declining to support John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) reelection as Speaker’.
‘Florida Republican Reps. Dan Webster and Richard Nugent have lost their spots on the House Rules Committee. A spokesman for the panel confirmed Webster and Nugent’s departures but didn’t elaborate on the circumstances’.
‘House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) did not express opposition to forcing two members off of his committee’.
‘Sessions, who supported Boehner’s candidacy, said the conference needed to reconcile after the “open fight” on the House floor’.
‘The powerful Rules Committee controls how legislation is considered on the floor, with members appointed directly by the Speaker’.
