Marjorie Taylor Greene Bay Area Fundraiser Cancelled
You know Marjorie Taylor Greene. She’s the deranged, freshman Georgia Republican Congresswoman who worships both Trump and QAnon, suggested that the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting was staged, said there’s no evidence a plane crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11, and maintains that wildfires were started by Jewish space lasers. Yeah, she’s a real peach.
A couple weeks ago it was announced that the San Francisco Republican Party was going to bring her out for a fundraiser that started at $175 a head. Of course, since she refuses to acknowledge whether she’s been vaccinated or not, the event could not be held in San Francisco due to The City’s proof-of-vaccination requirement for large indoor events. So the plan was to hold it at a location in northern San Mateo County, with the specific venue being announced 48 hours before the fundraiser.
Well, as of late Monday night, the event has been cancelled all together. As you can see in the below email sent out by the SFGOP, the official reason given is that Greene has to be in Washington just in case the votes for the reconciliation bill and Biden’s economic plan happen…even though those votes haven’t been scheduled yet.
But a source close to the SFGOP, who spoke to me on the condition of anonymity, has said that there’s a lot of speculation in their circles that it was shutdown because of SFGOP Chairman John Dennis “came under intense backlash”.
There are also rumors in those same circles that the ticketing site, Anedot, kicked the event off the platform. My source says that they were told the tickets were shut down a day before the cancellation was even announced.
I don’t know how likely that is though considering the platform boasts as its clients Focus on the Family, which is one of the most well funded anti-LGBT organizations in America, and the Susan B. Anthony List, which seeks to completely end abortion in the U.S. That said, I’ve reached out to Anedot for comment and am awaiting a response.
It could very well be that ticket sales were just really slow because Marjorie Taylor Greene is a soulless fucking monster who shouldn’t have been allowed to escape from whatever deep part of the internet she slithered out from. Regardless, at least she won’t be coming to town. We’ll see if she follows through with her threat to reschedule. I really hope not. Blech!
