Greene STRONGLY opposed outsiders – until she became one.
Hypocrite’s own words: “We’re tired of outsiders. So, outsiders need to get out. They need to run somewhere where they actually live.”
Not long ago – just the end of 2019 – Marjorie Taylor Greene STRONGLY OPPOSED candidates running for Congress in districts where they don’t live.
In a video Greene recorded when she was still running in her home district, she said, “We have two other candidates in the primary that I don’t really understand why they’re running in the 6th District because they don’t live in our district. We don’t like that here. We’re tired of outsiders. So, outsiders need to get out. They need to run somewhere where they actually live.”
She voiced the same thoughts to the Marietta Daily Journal during the 2017 special election between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff, who lived several miles outside the 6th District.
“It is a major issue for the 6th District,” Greene said. “We don’t like outsiders. That’s why people were supporting Karen Handel over Jon Ossoff because he was an outsider. Now we have the issue with Lucy McBath that isn’t even a Georgia resident. She filed her Homestead Exemption in Tennessee three years in a row. Outsiders are an issue to the 6th District.”
That principle changed when she figured out she couldn’t win the primary in the 6th District.
“Selfish, political opportunism is the mother of hypocrisy,” said Spencer Hogg, campaign manager for Cowan for Congress. “We think she said it best herself about ‘outsiders’ running for a congressional seat: ‘Get out!’
“Northwest Georgians deserve a leader who will go to Washington to serve the people – not herself. We need a homegrown fighter who understands the issues that matter most to this district. It’s time to send Marjorie Greene back home to Atlanta.”
