(FreedomJournal.org)- Rep. Marjorie Taylor, the controversial Republican congresswoman who was recently stripped of her committee assignments by congressional Democrats, is reportedly preparing to crash the Conservative Political Action Conference this year after not being invited by event organizers.
Sources close to the American Conservation Union that hosts the event say that Rep. Taylor Greene was not invited to speak at the event, following widespread controversy about comments she made before entering Congress. Taylor Greene reportedly shared Q Anon conspiracy theories online but has since apologized for doing so.
Various other Republican congressional freshmen were offered speaking slots at the annual conservative conference, including Rep. Burgess Owens, Rep. Byron Donalds, Rep. Michelle Fishbach, and Rep. Madison Cawthorn. Even Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, who is perpetually involved in scandals relating to her support of the Second Amendment, was offered a speaking spot.
The National File revealed the news, stating that it is “unclear what the rationale was for not inviting such a well-known member of the House of Representatives.”
The American Conservative Union didn’t respond to requests for comment, but the File also revealed how Rep. Green isn’t backing down, reportedly deciding to attend the conference as a private individual regardless.
Rep. Taylor Green will also speak at a number of other smaller events taking place around the main conference, including one event hosted by the Republicans for national Reviewal. The event, which will take place on February 27 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, will announce more speakers to join Rep. Taylor Greene soon.
CPAC is a national gathering of Republicans, and is widely considered to be the main event for conservatives each year. The event has long been held at the Gaylord Convention Center in Maryland, close to Washington, D.C., but will this year take place in Florida instead.
It is often used as a platform for presidential hopefuls to make their case, and President Donald Trump spoke at the conference before running for president in 2014 and 2015.
This year, possible 2024 candidates, including Rep. Matt Gaetz, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Gov. Ron DeSantis are all set to speak at the event.
