Even though she regularly rails against Democrats for spending too much money on things such as making sure children have enough to eat and there’s an adequate supply of COVID vaccines, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has been caught living large at the expense of those who contribute to her reelection campaign.
The Peach Pundit reports that FEC filings show Greene used $92,000 in campaign funds to purchase herself a fancy new SUV:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene used donors’ campaign contributions to buy herself a luxury vehicle worth over $92,000, FEC records show.
The expenditure will prove controversial as the May 24 primary approaches, not just because of the expensive, swanky nature of the vehicle, but because Greene’s second biggest source of donations is retired Americans—meaning she effectively raided donors’ Social Security checks to buy a tricked-out vehicle from a Buick/GMC dealership.
Maybe you’re wondering what sort of vehicle costs $92,000, and it appears to be a top-of-the line vehicle:
As of the time of writing, the website of the dealership in question shows no vehicles for sale with a sticker price above $81,860. That would get you a brand spanking new 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 HD AT4 truck complete with leather upholstery, two first row LCD monitors, a Premium GMC Infotainment System, and six speakers. So whatever MTG bought, it’s swankier than this.
Playing around on the GMC website, it looks like she ordered a 2022 GMC Yukon XL SUV with just about every available amenity and add-on.
That is one sweet ride. And Greene treated herself with the money sent in by retirees who are living on fixed incomes, because records show the second-largest group of contributors to her campaign are retired Americans.
Can you afford to drive a $92,000 luxury SUV? If you can’t, then maybe you need to take a page from Marjorie Taylor Greene, run for public office, and rake in those campaign donations. Pretty soon you’ll have enough money to fill your garage with great rides and maybe even have some left over to arrange a few spa days.
