The OUTSPOKEN off the wall hardline conservative is telling anyone who will listen that she want’s all kinds of political say in things in the US House should the Republican gain a majority there as expected….
That may NOT go well with some of parties people….
She was ‘radioactive’ just a few months ago for saying stuff that did NOT play well in the media…
Letting her operate in a leadership posation could cause the party headache’s and political trouble….
That they don’t need since the Senate probably will still under the Democrats control and the Democratic President can always Veto things he doesn’t like….
The Trump wing of the GOP seems on the outs…..
So Greene has been making sure she cozies up to House Minority Leader McCarthy who will probably move the Speakers spot with a Republican Majority….
In February 2021, the House voted to removeGreene from her committee assignments in the wake of revelations of a series of incendiary and violent statements she had made in the past, including embracing the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory.
At that point, it seemed as though Greene would drift into irrelevancy – sidelined from doing much more than forcing occasional time-wasting votesof the full House that angered Republicans as much as Democrats.
That has not happened. Instead, over the past year-plus, Greene has grown more and more powerful – aligning herself firmly with the Trumpist base of the GOP and using her popularity on social media to stay relevant. (Her personal Twitter account was permanently suspended at the beginning of the year for spreading misinformation about Covid-19, but she still has more than 1.1 million followers on her official account.)
She has also demonstrated a fundraising prowess literally unheard of outside of party leaders in the past. From the beginning of 2021 through September 30, 2022, Greene had raised $11.6 million for her non-competitive reelection bid in a safe GOP seat.
As it’s become clearer and clearer that neither Trump nor his most prominent congressional acolytes are going anywhere in the Republican Party, Greene has found herself on the receiving end of a charm offensive from McCarthy.
Greene was at the public unveiling of the House Republicans’ “Commitment to America” plan in Pennsylvania last month, standing right behind McCarthy in the camera shot. And she made a trip to the southern border with the McCarthy earlier this year….
