The “Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee”—a fundraising group for Republican women—refuses to give campaign donations to Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), drawing a harsh response from one lawmaker.
Greene and Boebert are two congresswomen who have frequently expressed their opposition to the Democrat far-left agenda. They are also lawmakers contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election.
In a new email released by USA Today, Julie Conway—executive director of the Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee—smeared Greene and Boebert as “shameless self-promoters and carnival barkers.”
“While we rightfully celebrate the number of GOP women serving in the House, I’ve always professed quality over quantity,” Conway wrote in the email which was first reported by the Business Insider.
“The work of Congress is not a joke or reality show. Our women have fought too hard for too long to be respected and taken seriously as legislators, policy makers and thought leaders. We cannot let this work be erased by individuals who chose to be shameless self-promoters and carnival barkers,” she wrote.
“I think that they would rather draw attention to themselves, and really Marjorie Taylor Greene more than Boebert, but they’re cut from the same cloth,” Conway added.
In a response, Boebert described the fundraising group for GOP women as a “DC insider PAC,” according to USA Today.
“I care about the hard-working Americans from Colorado’s Third Congressional District … that’s whose cloth I’m cut from,” Boebert said.
Both Greene and Boebert, two powerful populist women, have been known for their different languaging, particularly on the topic of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At a fundraiser in Illinois for another freshman GOP congresswoman last Thursday, July 8, Greene showed off her We Will Not Comply Act, a bill she filed in April that would prevent discrimination against those who choose not to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
In a tweet on Saturday, Greene criticized President Joe Biden for his new door-to-door COVID-19 vaccine push by citing CDC data to say nearly 6,000 people died after vaccination. At the same time, 33.6 million Americans “SURVIVED COVID.”
In late June, Rep. Lauren Boebert led a group of nearly two dozen House GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Greene, introducing a measure to censure President Biden over his lack of action in handling the immigration crisis at the southern border.
