Marjorie Taylor Greene was born May 27, 1974.

She is an American politician, businesswoman, and far-right conspiracy theorist who has represented Georgia’s 14th congressional district since 2021.

Marjorie was elected to Congress in 2020 when Republican incumbent Tom Graves retired. She is a member of the Republican Party and a staunch admirer of former President Donald Trump.

Greene has promoted far-right, white supremacist, and antisemitic conspiracy theories such as the white genocide conspiracy theory, QAnon, and Pizzagate, as well as other disproven conspiracy theories such as false flag mass shootings, the Clinton body count, and numerous 9/11-related theories.

Prior to standing for Congress, she pushed for the assassination of prominent Democratic lawmakers. She equated the Democratic Party as a Congresswoman. She is considered as one of the toughest women in the political scene.

Marjorie Taylor Greene mask saga: How much fine has she paid so far?

Marjorie Taylor Greene said on Wednesday that her unwillingness to wear the Covid masks in Congress had resulted in a $90,000 fine.

“I’ve racked up about $90,000 in penalties on the House floor because I think that in order to represent the people, I must be ready to do it myself. As a result, I don’t wear a mask. I’m just trying to fight for those who are opposed to it.”

Greene, who has not been vaccinated is convinced that masks are ineffective at preventing the spread of COVID-19, despite health officials’ claims to the contrary.

Members of the House are fined if they do not wear masks. The first infraction is punishable by a $500 fine, and subsequent crimes are punishable by a $2,500 fine.
