Key factors

Greene and her husband filed “homestead tax exemptions” on a home they own in Fulton County and another in Floyd County so they can claim substantial landowner tax breaks, Atlanta’s WSB-TV reported on Friday, citing on tax documents.

In a statement to WSB-TV, Greene described the apparent snafu as “getting done” of paperwork and told reporter Justin Gray to “mind his own business, rather than make another pathetic attempt, me and to smear my family. “

Forbes has approached Greene for a comment.

Key background

Greene has caused almost constant outrage since winning the Republican nomination for a deep red seat in northern Georgia last year. She has expressed her support for the QAnon false conspiracy theory before later being traced back into office, suggested that multiple school shootings were carried out, and supported former President Donald Trump’s baseless allegations of election fraud. She and her staff also have a reputation for confrontation with other members of Congress, and before she was elected to Congress, she appeared to approve of the idea of ​​violence against her political opponents.
