Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is back in her North Georgia congressional district this week as early voting begins in the Peach State, touching base with constituents and urging them to cast their ballots.
But one of those constituents had a bone to pick with the congresswoman, and he made his thoughts known.
Aleq Boyle, a U.S. Navy veteran who lives in Chickamauga, approached Greene and told her he was disgusted by comments she’d made in April suggesting that enlisting in the military while Joe Biden is president was “throwing your life away.”
Boyle then added:
“I heard what you said, I read the texts. Here’s the problem, you’ve cast disparaging things against the Jewish community, you suggested a space laser.”
Greene denied she had made such comments:
“No, sir, I have not.”
But Boyle was just getting warmed up:
“You are disrespecting the United States Congress and you’re a shame.”
“No, sir,” Greene repeated.
The vet also told Greene:
“I’m really, horribly, saddened that the fourteenth district has gone to such craziness.”
Boyle later told a reporter from WTVC-TV that he had cast his ballot in the GOP primary and was hopeful Greene would be forced into a runoff.

There’s a very real possibility that even if Green does win the nomination for a second term in office, she won’t be allowed on the November ballot due to her actions prior to and during the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection.
A group of voters in Greene’s district has filed suit to have her disqualified from running, citing a clause in the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which prohibits anyone who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the United States from holding public office.
