United States House of Representatives

Editor's note: North Carolina conservative Rep. Mark Meadows filed a motion Tuesday night to remove John Boehner, R-Ohio, as Speaker of the House. Meadows says Boehner has "caused the power of Congress to atrophy." This action has never been successfully used to depose a speaker, Politico reports, and in its current form the motion is "simply a statement of opposition to Boehner." Sources tell the news outlet that Meadows will circulate a petition to force a vote, but he could ask for one in the next two legislative days. - Stephanie
