Supporters of wacky Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Are putting their money where her conspiratorial mouth is.
The first-year lawmaker’s campaign said it raised $ 3.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, more than four times what progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) raised in the first quarter of 2019, media reported on Wednesday.
Greene’s team raised $ 3.2 million from more than 100,000 individual donations from all 50 states – an incredible amount for a lawmaker at the start of a term, according to Politico. In 2019, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign grossed $ 728,000 after she became a sensation with her oppressed rise to Capitol Hill, The Hill noted.
“More than 100,000 donors have given more than $ 3,200,000 to support me, an average of $ 32 per donation”, Greene tweeted. “You know why? I held on and never wavered in my belief in America’s politics first and putting people above politicians! And I will NEVER back down! , I’m just getting started.
Greene, who backs QAnon, was stripped of her post on the House committee after past comments came to light in which she said the school shootings were hoaxes and speculated that a laser backed by Jewish money had started a forest fire in California. She also endorsed violence against Democrats and called the vaccine passport project “the mark of the beast.”
Last week, Greene introduced the Fire Fauci Act, calling for the salary of infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci to be wiped out while a replacement is found.
