A Republican lawmaker wants to take House Speaker John Boehner's gavel away.
FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:
Speaker Boehner just won a challenge to his leadership post earlier this year... and now, North Carolina Republican Congressman Mark Meadows has filed a "motion to vacate the chair".
If successful, the resolution would force a new election for House Speaker.
Congressman Meadows argues that Boehner has endeavored to consolidate and centralize power.
Such a challenge is almost without precedent in the House of Representatives. More than 100 years ago, a similar effort was attempted and failed.
