NextImg:Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulled fire alarm as House Democrats tried to stall GOP measure

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was caught by a security camera pulling a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building as Democrats were trying to stall a vote on the clean continuing resolution put on the floor by Republicans.

It came as House Democrats were using a number of procedural measures to stall a vote on a clean continuing resolution to buy time for their members to read the bill.

The congressman "did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote," Sarah Iddrissu, Bowman's chief of staff, said on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. "The Congressman regrets any confusion."

“Rep Jamal Bowman pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning. An investigation into why it was pulled is underway,” House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil said in a post on X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-R) told the Washington Examiner, “There's a video. I mean, how dumb is he that he doesn't realize that there's cameras?”
