When you look up the word “inflammatory,” there’s a good chance you’ll find Marjorie Taylor Greene’s picture next to it, especially if you’re using a political dictionary.
She’s become the bad girl of the House of Representatives, Georgia style. Greene is a Trump acolyte and an agitator, and her incendiary style has given her a national reputation.
Her journey to both fame and infamy is a fascinating one, so let’s see how Marjorie Taylor Greene became a household name, in politics and beyond while giving her an estimated net worth of $5 million.
Marjorie Taylor was born in Milledgeville California in 1974, and earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia. She married Perry Greene just before she graduated in 1995, and her marriage was the beginning when it came to building her wealth.
She and her husband purchased her father’s construction company for an unknown amount in 2002, and since then Taylor Commercial has managed commercial construction and renovation projects that are believed to be worth over $250 million.
But Taylor Greene wasn’t done showing off her business sense. She started a CrossFit gym in Georgia that became one of the top-rated gyms in the country, which made it relatively easy for her to sell it at a huge profit.
Taylor Greene’s brashness with her business moves hasn’t served her nearly as well in the political arena. A staunch Republican, she began to draw attention to herself when she became interested in running for office.
She has been a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, and she has admitted to being a supporter of the QAnon, the conspiracy theory cult that has become a prominent part of Trump’s base.
She was elected to serve in the House of Representatives in 2021 as a representative of Georgia’s 14th congressional district, and it was then that she became a true lightning rod for controversy.
Taylor Greene has been fined several times for her refusal to wear a mask while working in the House of Representatives. She also hasn’t been above sharing conspiracy theories about election fraud.
Taylor Greene seems to enjoy her reputation. She owns a 5,600-square-foot mansion in Milledgeville, and the home has a swimming pool and a tennis court to go with her yacht and several cars.
She also recently bought another property in Fulton County that’s also worth about $600,000, so it’s safe to say that Taylor Greene is a member of the one percent and then some.
Her life in politics could be in jeopardy, though. Greene was stripped of all her committee roles for her congressional misbehavior, and she also had to fend off an effort to conduct a runoff election to remove her from office. She’s up for reelection soon, and her results will be a prominent part of the midterm reports.
While Taylor Greene’s marriage was successful early on, Taylor and Perry recently split up. They had three children together, and her romantic future is just as up in the air as her political future seems to be.
