Marjorie Taylor Greene claims ‘real’ voter suppression is her having to wait to go through metal detectors at Congress

Ms Greene described an experience that nearly all Americans have to endure any time they enter a state or federal building or attempt to board an airplane.She went on to say that Americans having to wait in long lines to vote was not voter suppression – even though she had just claimed that House members waiting in long lines was voter suppression – and that it was simply part of the process.

"So that is real voter suppression and it's a shame that it happens right here on the House floor. Standing in line to vote is not voter suppression, it's just part of the voting process, just like people stand in line to buy groceries at the grocery store," she said.

Ms Greene's analogy is imperfect at best: Americans can grocery shop at any time, any day of the week, and can use online services to have their products sent to them at their homes. Voting occurs during a short period of time, and only some states allow for mail-in voting beyond casting absentee ballots. headtopics.com

I wouldn't let that crazy cow into a mother's meeting without putting her through a metal detector !! God only knows where she may choose to conceal her gun !! REAL voter suppression is have to see this dolt's face in national news until she gets voted out next election!! Me me me 🥜🥜🥜🥜|s Marjorie Greene feels like she can do whatever she wants in Congress. She is wrong. Republican voters are fast getting fed up with her antics.
