The QAnon-endorsing Greene was stripped of her House committee assignments after past comments came to light in which she said school shootings were hoaxes and surmised that a laser supported by Jewish money started a California wildfire. She also endorsed violence against Democrats and referred to a proposed vaccine passport as “something like Biden’s mark of the beast.” “Over 100,000 donors poured in over $3,200,000 to support me, averaging $32 per donation,” Greene tweeted. “You know why? I stood my ground and never wavered in my belief in America First policies and putting People Over Politicians! And I will NEVER backdown! As a matter of fact, I’m just getting started.”
Last week, Greene introduced the “Fire Fauci Act,” calling for the salary of infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci to be reduced to nothing while a replacement was found for him. Greene’s team reaped $3.2 million from more than 100,000 individual donations from all 50 states ― a staggering amount for a lawmaker at the start of a term, according to Politico. In 2019, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign took in $728,000 after she became a sensation with her underdog ascent to Capitol Hill, The Hill noted.
