Friday on Anderson Cooper 360, CNN political analyst David Axelrod said that the lawsuit attempting to disqualify Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from reelection ballot access over her comments and tweets surrounding the January 6, 2021 Capitol breach will fail and only serve to increase her fundraising.
Asked if he thought the case brought against Greene would be successful, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said, “No, I don’t. I think this is an embarrassment for Congresswoman Greene.”
But Axelrod responded, “Yeah, I totally agree with Jeff’s analysis except for one point. He calls it an embarrassment to her. And perhaps it is to some, but for her, it’s an embarrassment of riches. This only strengthens her with her base. She will play the victim, and she will end up on top because they will dismiss this case.
“And meanwhile, she’ll raise a ton of money off of it, which is what she’s been doing from the beginning,” Axelrod added glumly. “She’s one of the most prolific fundraisers in the Republican Party because her antics are rewarded time and again. I don’t think this is going to be any different.”
Maybe the Democrats should have thought of that before they tried to punish Greene for not falling in line with their concocted January 6 “insurrection.”
