• Amash, Huelskamp, Schweikert send letter to Boehner seeking answers

    December 7, 2012

    The Honorable John Boehner
    Speaker of the House of Representatives
    232 The Capitol
    Washington, DC 20515

    Dear Speaker Boehner,

    We write to request a full and complete written explanation of the rationale for removing us from our current committee assignments, including any "scorecards" presented to the Steering Committee to justify our removals.

    On Monday, we learned that we had been removed from our committee assignments. Some of us learned of this news from a member of the Steering Committee; others never were officially informed and heard of the action from press accounts citing anonymous leadership staffers. To this date, no formal explanation has been given for the removal.

    After learning of our removal, it came to our attention that a scorecard was presented to the Steering Committee to make the case for our removal from those committees. On Wednesday morning, Mr. Huelskamp stood before the House Republican Conference and asked to see a copy of the scorecard used to remove us.

    Through this past term, we were not aware that any such scorecard existed, nor that the scores would cause us to be removed from committee assignments. We believe this would be valuable information for the entire Republican Conference to know, so that each Member can make a full and complete decision when casting votes in the future. It would also allow us to communicate to our constituents which votes caused us to be removed.

    Please provide a full and complete written explanation for our removal, including a copy of the scorecard presented to the Steering Committee meeting, by close of business Monday, December 10th.


    Tim Huelskamp
    U.S. Representative

    Justin Amash
    U.S. Representative

    David Schweikert
    U.S. Representative

Yeah, the press and the Education Mafia will hate it, because he...
