Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Green has become one of the most visible, and controversial, figures in American politics. First elected in 2020 to represent Georgia's 14th district, Representative Greene wasted no time in making herself known to the general public. This has rarely been for positive reasons, with Greene's behavior and statements being a source of constant mockery. Greene was censured for comments threatening other members of Congress and supporting the January 6 insurrection. Furthermore, she has gone viral for a number of statements, including one where she made reference to "Jewish space lasers".
However, Greene is also an incredibly influential right-wing politician. She is seen as the face of the most right-wing members of the Republican Congressional Caucus. This made her a pivotal lynchpin during the prolong Speaker of the house elections in early 2023. However, the vocal Trump support is now facing a new scandal
Greene Staffer Bought Kanye West Presidential Website Domain
In June 2022, Representative Greene hired Milo Yiannopoulos as a Congressional intern. Yiannopoulos was once one of the biggest voices in the right-wing movement but fell from grace after being successfully de-platformed from much of the mainstream internet. However, right-wing operative Laura Loomer has revealed that while interning for Greene, Yiannopoulos purchased the domain "Ye24.com" on the website hosting site, GoDaddy. Ye24.com is now the official website of Kanye West's presidential campaign. Yiannopoulos was then reportedly reimbursed for this purchase, which totaled a little over $7000. Yiannopoulos was concurrently serving as the campaign manager for Kanye West's 2024 election campaign at the time.
If this is true, it could be a serious breach of campaign finance law. While campaigns can donate to one another, that amount is limited to $2000 per year. If Yiannopoulos did buy the domain while registered on Greene's staff, that would be a violation of more than three times the federal limit. Greene has denied any involvement in the incident. "Congresswoman Greene knew nothing about the gross negligence made by a vendor and is being unfairly attacked as a result," a representative for Greene said. However, it is also worth noting that this is not coming from across the aisle. Laura Loomer is often described as "far-right" and even as a "white nationalist". While this story is developing, it could hurt Greene both in terms of federal punishment and her standing with her pro-Trump base.
