Schweikert Booted from Financial Services Committee

GOP leadership has removed Rep. David Schweikert from his spot on the Financial Services Committee for bucking the party line too often.

The Arizona Republican’s spokeswoman confirmed he was removed from the committee. A person close to the situation said Schweikert was told that “his votes were not in lock step with leadership” as the reason for his ouster.

A spokesman for Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, did not immediately return a request for comment.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., will be joining the Financial Services Committee, which will be headed in the 113th Congress by outgoing GOP Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling of Texas.
