Capitol maintenance workers were seen preparing to take down ‘Speaker Kevin McCarthy’ sign above his office after his historic ouster from power on Tuesday.

A photo of the same was posted by CNN’s Haley Talbot where two maintenance workers were seen standing beneath the sign outside McCarthy’s office discussing something. “The ‘Speaker Kevin McCarthy’ sign above the Capitol Speaker office is being removed now,” she wrote.

However, Talbot revealed in a follow-up tweet that the same workers mysteriously withdrew, leaving the sign untouched. “Per @kristin__wilson- The carpenters and their ladder have now been moved away. The sign remains,” she wrote.

It was not clear as to what could have prompted the workers to let McCarthy’s office sign be. It was also not clear if they received orders to take down the sign in the first place.

As one of the first orders of business for the day, after the removal of McCarthy, Speaker Pro Tempore Patrick McHenry ordered former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her office in the Capitol building while she was away for the funeral of a friend.

“With all of the important decisions that the new Republican leadership must address, which we are all eagerly awaiting, one of the first actions taken by the new speaker pro tempore was to order me to immediately vacate my office in the Capitol,” Pelosi said in a statement on Tuesday night. “Sadly, because I am in California to mourn the loss of and pay tribute to my dear friend Dianne Feinstein, I am unable to retrieve my belongings at this time.”

Pelosi added: “This eviction is a sharp departure from tradition. As speaker, I gave former [Republican] speaker [Dennis] Hastert a significantly larger suite of offices for as long as he wished.”
