image for Feds Ask Marjorie Taylor Greene to Account for Over $3.5M of Unitemized Donations

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for more information about $3.5 million in contributions to her re-election campaign.

Between January and March, the Greene campaign received $2,558,631.61 in unitemized donations from undisclosed donors, while the campaign received another $967,045.73 in unitemized donations between April and June.

The campaign reported a total of more than $4.5 million in donations during the same time period.

Candidates are not legally obliged to itemize donations or disclose the identity of their donors for contributions that total under $200 during an election cycle.

The FEC has given the Greene campaign until October 12 to provide clarification about the $3.5 million.

Since the campaign has received a high volume of donations this year, it could have easily raised the $3.5 million strictly through small donations.

Greene used the controversy to appeal to her supporters for campaign contributions, while comparing herself to Trump in the process. »

They were members of the Taliban, who were waging an offensive to wrest the countryside back from the Afghan National Army.

The pounding of artillery filled the air, announcing the start of a Taliban assault on an Afghan Army outpost.

Unlike in relatively liberal Kabul, visiting women in these hinterlands is not easy: even without Taliban rule, women traditionally do not speak to unrelated men. »
