Marjorie Taylor Greene says has proof of 2020 Georgia election fraud, ex turned away at poll station
"They all went to vote in person but were told they already voted by absentee, but none of them actually did!" she wrote.
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Wednesday election fraud occurred in her state in 2020 and that her then-husband was a victim – amid a sprawling criminal case in which former President Trump and 18 others have been indicted for purportedly trying to overturn election results that year in Georgia, in part over assertions of election fraud.
"Was there election fraud in Georgia in 2020? YES there was," theRepublican congresswoman tweeted. "My then-husband, Perry Greene, showed up to vote and was told he already voted by absentee ballot but did NOT and NEVER requested an absentee ballot."
Greene, who has made such allegations before, said in a followup post: "There was a line of people that he stood with that had the same thing happen to them. They all went to vote in person but were told they already voted by absentee, but none of them actually did!"
Greene, whose husband filed for divorce from her last September, has vocally supported former Trump's claims that there was election fraud in 2020. Trump and the others were indicted Monday night on state charges in Fulton County, Ga., for allegedly attempting to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.
Greene said she and her ex-husband spoke about how he was told he had already voted by absentee, but they were "both called liars" until they filed a Freedom of Information Act Request that showed he never requested an absentee ballot nor did he turn in one.
"The fraud was in the Secretary of State website," Greene also wrote. "It showed an absentee ballot had been turned in (in his name) but he had never turned one in. I heard from people all over Georgia that said the same thing happened to them, what happened to all those fake absentee ballots?"
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican who denied Trump's election fraud claims, never gave Greene an explanation about why it appeared that her husband voted absentee, she said.
Greene's comments were directed at Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp after he defended the state's election in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
"The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen," Kemp wrote in response to a Truth Social post by Trump claiming that election fraud was present in Georgia. "For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward - under oath - and prove anything in a court of law. Our elections in Georgia are secure, accessible, and fair and will continue to be as long as I am governor."
Greene also said that "there were many problems in our Georgia election in 2020" and she would be "happy" to share the documents she has on the matter with Kemp.
