Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) criticized those who tried to cancel her book signing event marking the third anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, touting that a new location had been secured.
“The Communist Democrats tried to stop him from signing books,” Greene said. he said in a video posted Friday night to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “They lost!”
“I’ll be in Orlando, FL tomorrow night at a new location to sign copies of my new MTG book. See you there!!” she added.
The Georgia lawmaker was responding to the news that the Westgate Resort refused to accept The singing. The venue, located in Kissimmee, Florida, stated that it was “not informed” of the purpose of the event.
“Please note that Westgate was not aware of the purpose of this event when we were contacted to host a book signing,” the resort said in an emailed statement. “This event has been canceled and will no longer be held at our resort.”
Osceola County Republican Committee Chairman Mark Cross, who was in charge of the event, also told The Hill in a statement that “the show must go on.”
“Although some media outlets have claimed that the event has been cancelled, that is false,” he wrote. “The show must go on and we look forward to welcoming Marjorie Taylor Greene to Orlando tomorrow.”
He said Democrats in Orlando probably “started calling people and lying about the purpose of the event.”
Florida state Rep. Anna Eskamani (D) earlier in the week criticized Greene and the Republican Party for hosting an event around the violent insurrection.
“Just another day in Florida where the local Republican Party in Osceola County is hosting an ‘anniversary’ event to commemorate January 6 and Marjorie Taylor Green is the ‘special’ guest,” Eskamani aware at X. “I really hoped this was a joke when I first saw it.”
