LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Michigan Rep. Josh Schriver (R-Oxford) lost his staff and his spot on a legislative committee as punishment for sharing a social media post last week.

Rep. Shriver shared the post from Jack Posobiec, the senior editor of Human Events. The representative did not offer further comment. The “Great Replacement Theory” says white people are purposely being replaced with immigrants and refugees.
House Speaker Joe Tate (D-Detroit) announced Monday his decision to reassign Schriver’s staff and remove him from the House Natural Resources, Environment, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation Committee. Additionally, resources typically made available to representatives will be held from Schriver by the House Business Office.
The House Speaker is allowed to unilaterally carry out such disciplinary measures.
Voters elected Rep. Schriver to office in 2022.
