Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) didn’t miss the opportunity to cash in on her ignominious moment in the spotlight, sending out a conspiracy-laden, grammatically-awkward fundraising email as her House colleagues were voting to expel her from Committees for promoting bonkers conspiracy theories.
The email began by naming its blameshifting targets in the subject line, “AOC and Ilhan Omar,” and immediately launched into false and unproven claims about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), including that Ocasio-Cortez “encouraged supporters to ‘punch a cop!’” and Omar married her brother.

Not only did I never make this claim, but I would never, ever do this.
What Greene is doing pumping this lie to her insurrectionist base is making them feel justified in further violence.
The prospect of stripping her committees clearly isn’t quelling her. She must be expelled. https://t.co/8WvvCgsMQt

I woke up early this morning literally laughing thinking about what a bunch of morons the Democrats (+11) are for giving some one like me free time.
In this Democrat tyrannical government, Conservative Republicans have no say on committees anyway.
Oh this is going to be fun!
