Marjorie Greene is an American Republican politician and a current member of the U.S. House of Representatives since 2021. Widely recognized for her confrontational style and contentious perspectives, Greene initially gained national prominence during her congressional campaign due to her endorsement of QAnon conspiracy theories on social media. Aligning herself as a prominent advocate of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) political movement, a coalition of right-wing populists that emerged during Donald Trump’s presidency (2017–2021), she captured the attention of influential Republican leaders.

Marjorie Taylor, Parents are Robert (“Bob”) Taylor and Carrie Fidelle (“Delle”) Bacon. Greene was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, on May 27, 1974.
Marjorie Taylor Greene married Perry Greene in 1995 while they were in college, and together they have three children. However, in September 2022, Perry Greene announced his decision to file for divorce, citing an “irretrievably broken” marriage. The divorce was finalized on December 22, 2022. In 2023, following her divorce from Perry Greene, Marjorie Taylor Greene entered into a relationship with Brian Glenn, who serves as the director of programming for the Right Side Broadcasting Network.
In 1992, she completed her education at South Forsyth High School in Cumming, Georgia, and later obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Georgia in 1996.
In statements given in 2019 and during a House floor speech on February 4, 2021, where she discussed her stance on gun rights and school shootings, Greene referred to an incident from September 1990 at her high school. During this event, an armed student held 53 students hostage for over five hours, and Greene indicated that it had a lasting impact on her.
In 2002, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s father sold Taylor Commercial, a company based in Alpharetta, Georgia, to Greene and her husband, Perry, who assumed roles as vice president and president, respectively.
While listed as the chief financial officer of Taylor Commercial from 2007 to 2011, a 2021 investigation by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution found that Greene had minimal involvement in the company. In 2011, she stepped down as CFO and began CrossFit training.
By 2012, Greene worked as a part-time coach at an Alpharetta CrossFit gym. In August 2013, she co-founded CrossFit Passion in Alpharetta with Travis Mayer, a CrossFit athlete, before leaving the business in early 2017. In a 2015 interview, Greene acknowledged their limited business knowledge when founding the gym.
In 2021, Greene stated that she became politically engaged during the 2016 Republican Party presidential primaries. Starting in 2017, she wrote articles for the now-defunct American Truth Seekers and Law Enforcement Today, a pro-police fake news website. In 2017, she protested a Republican gun control compromise in Washington, D.C.
Greene held a significant role in the Family America Project, a conservative group founded in January 2018. As a moderator of the organization’s Facebook group, she faced criticism for members posting death threats against Democrats, bigotry against the Obamas, and support for conspiracy theories, including claims about the U.S. government being infiltrated by communists.
In February 2019, Greene visited the U.S. Capitol and congressional offices. In a livestream video posted on Facebook, she confronted Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outside her office, making controversial remarks. During visits to Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib’s offices, she falsely claimed they were not “official” representatives due to being sworn in on the Quran, expressing a preference for them to use the Bible. Greene accused them of supporting Islamic law in the videos.
U.S. House of Representatives
Initially intending to run in Georgia’s 7th congressional district, Greene shifted her campaign to the 6th district on June 4, 2019. Emphasizing her commitment to balancing the federal budget, she criticized her primary opponent, Karen Handel, for supporting large spending bills and electoral losses. Later, on December 13, 2019, Greene moved her campaign to the 14th district following incumbent Tom Graves’ decision not to seek reelection. Despite residing in the 6th district, she legally ran for the 14th and eventually moved there. Greene, a vocal Trump supporter, campaigned with the slogan “Save America, Stop Socialism!” and won the June 9 primary, advancing to a runoff election against neurosurgeon John Cowan, whom she labeled a RINO (Republican in Name Only).
Greene was widely regarded as the clear frontrunner for victory in the general election, given the traditionally strong Republican leanings of the 14th district. The Cook Political Report, in 2017, ranked the district as the 10th-most Republican in the nation.
In September 2021, the Federal Election Commission requested information from Marjorie Taylor Greene’s 2022 re-election campaign treasurer, her husband, regarding $3.5 million in unitemized campaign contributions from undisclosed donors in the first half of 2021. Federal law permits only individual contributions under $200 to be unitemized. Despite facing legal challenges in April based on alleged involvement in organizing the Capitol attack, Greene secured victory in the May Republican primary against Jennifer Strahan. Subsequently, in November 2022, she was reelected, garnering 65.9 percent of the vote and defeating Democratic nominee Marcus Flowers.
After she won the 2020 Republican primary runoff election, Greene wrote on Twitter: “The GOP establishment, the media, & the radical left, spent months & millions of dollars attacking me. She has expressed support for Donald Trump and declared her intention to push Republicans further to the right.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Targeted in Swatting Attempt
On Christmas, a swatting incident was directed at U.S. Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene at her residence in Georgia, as reported by the police.
Swatting involves the intentional and illegal act of making false crime reports to emergency services with the aim of prompting local police or SWAT teams to respond to a specific location. This harmful practice is often used to target individuals’ homes or workplaces and is frequently fueled by misinformation spread through social media.
Greene took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share details about the incident, revealing that this marked the eighth attempt. The Associated Press reported that Kelly Madden, a spokesperson for the city of Rome, Ga., confirmed the call as a hoax, clarifying that officers were not dispatched to Greene’s house. According to Madden, an individual in New York called a Georgia suicide hotline, falsely claiming to have shot his girlfriend at Greene’s residence and threatening to take his own life.
“My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this,” Greene said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
She additionally stated that she experienced another swatting incident on December 21, during which an individual issued death threats via social media. According to her post, no suspect has been apprehended in connection with the incident.
“Swatting is extremely dangerous and people have been killed as a result from swatting calls. It’s also a waste of police time and resources and harassment,” Greene wrote. “I will be introducing legislation to track down swatters.”
Rome police said it has formed a close working relationship with Greene’s security detail and is in the process of identifying the latest harasser, Madden told the AP.
This is not the first time the congresswoman, who is known for embracing conspiracy theories, has been targeted. Last month, a man in Georgia was arrested after threatening to kill her.
