If they did play a leadership role in this affair, it would not be the first time. Here is a story from 2012. Four elderly men, in North Georgia, were led astray by a Federal informant.

Those ‘four elderly men’ may have been dim but they also conspired to buy explosives and manufacture ricin with the intent of killing cops and government employees, and all the Walker Evans pictures in the world won’t change that.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) bet big on a nationwide joint fundraising tour with her embattled colleague. But new campaign filings show that not only did the gamble not pay off, but that the much-maligned Republicans actually spent four times as much as they raised. Greene, the House GOP’s top fundraiser, is now faced with a decision: She can continue to join forces with her beleaguered ally at the expense of her campaign war chest, or she can cut bait and let Gaetz fend for himself. Since Gaetz and Greene kicked off their joint fundraising committee with a May 7 event at The Villages in central Florida, their campaigns and joint fundraising committee have posted a combined loss of $342,000. And according to recent filings with the Federal Election Commission, that joint fundraising effort, “Put America First,” reported only $59,345.54 in contributions. https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-matt-gaetz-marjorie-taylor-greene-fundraising-tour-is-actually-a-cash-fire?source=articles&via=rss Oops.
