(USA Features) Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced Friday that her chief of staff is resigning, but the reason why is not only understandable but praiseworthy in and of itself.
“I want to thank my Chief of Staff, Patrick Parsons, for helping me take the fight to the Socialist Democrats as I’ve transitioned into Congress,” the freshman Georgia Republican tweeted.
“He’s advised me he will be moving back into the political arena to help elect America First conservatives who can fight alongside me,” Greene continued.
The Washington Examiner adds:
Greene has established herself as a conservative firebrand and vocal Trump supporter since becoming the representative for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District in January.
In February, House Democrats stripped Greene of her committee assignments over her past incendiary statements and social media interactions. She has also made headlines for introducing multiple impeachment resolutions against President Joe Biden.
Parsons, a former gun-rights activist, paid Greene the ultimate compliment, saying that working with the first-term congresswoman has been the highlight of his career.
“She asked me to come to Washington to help organize her office,” Parsons noted in a statement. “After eight and a half months fighting the Socialist Democrats and RINOs in D.C. it’s time to move on.”
She said he could do more to fight the “communist Biden agenda” by working on the outside rather than from inside Congress.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is an America’s First superstar who has become one of the leading policy-influencers in our party today,” Parsons added.
“She’s shaken up Washington, D.C., stood up to the swamp and her own conference, disrupted business as usual and showed Republicans how to fight back and never back down,” he continued.
Parsons also indicated he is looking forward to working with Taylor Greene in the future to “Save America” and “stop communism.”
