(SNews) – A Republican congresswoman has introduced an amendment seeking to slash the salary of Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to just $1.
In justifying the move, Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) accused Jean-Pierre of having “repeatedly lied to the American people.”
Tenney’s proposal was an amendment to the H.R. 4664 appropriations package, the $25 billion Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act of 2024
“During Miss Jean-Pierre’s tenure as press secretary, she has repeatedly lied to the American people and acted in a condescending manner toward reporters, and also violated the Hatch Act,” Tenney stated.
Tenney (R-NY) introduced the amendment to reduce Jean-Pierre’s salary on Thursday.
The New York lawmaker explained that the press secretary has abused her position by constantly spewing misinformation to the American public.
She also accused Biden’s spokeswoman of mistreating reporters and hating the Jewish people.
