Self-funding QAnon candidate gave own campaign $450,000 after getting PPP loan

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a QAnon conspiracy theorist and Republican candidate who is expected to win her House race in Georgia next month, donated $450,000 to her own campaign after receiving a six-figure Paycheck Protection Program loan from the government for her construction company.

Greene, who has promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory and posted videos attacking Black people, Muslims and Jews, won the Republican primary in Georgia’s 14th congressional district in August despite opposition from Republican leaders. She is almost certain to take over the seat now held by retiring Republican Rep. Tom Graves, especially after her Democratic opponent dropped out of the race last month in a district President Trump carried by 50 points. Trump has since praised Greene as a “future Republican star.”

Greene’s bid was partially funded by a super PAC allied with the House Freedom Caucus, which has opposed additional funding to provide coronavirus relief to Americans. Greene has opposed additional spending as well, declaring in a Facebook video that “the best stimulus for Americans is allowing Americans to go back to work!”

Despite her opposition to the stimulus funding and the PPP, her family’s company, Taylor Commercial, received a six-figure PPP loan worth between $150,000 and $350,000 earlier this year. New York Magazine reported that her name had stopped appearing on the company’s registration forms in 2012 but was added back in 2019.

4. Who WILL, unfortunately, win her House race.

That's a far far right district which I used to live in. No way in hell will a Democrat ever win there.

She's an absolute nut case, I've had to endure many of her radio and TV commercials. She's absolutely bonkers.

8. She'll fit right in with the rest of the republican...

criminals and grifters. That she's a Qanon fruitcake really adds to her appeal with right-wing voters. The death of the republican party is now complete. They're forever to be linked to the lunatic fringe of society.
