Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s planned book signing event in Florida marking the anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has sparked controversy, leading to the cancellation of her original venue. As Greene stated in a video posted to X, “The Communist Democrats tried to shut down my book signing. They lost!”

The Georgia congresswoman was responding to news that Westgate Resort in Kissimmee, Florida would no longer host the event promoting Greene’s new book “MTG.” “Please be advised that Westgate was not made aware of the purpose of this event when we were approached to host a book signing,” the resort said in an emailed statement. “This event has been cancelled and is no longer taking place at our resort.”

Despite this setback, Greene stated in her video that “I’ll be in Orlando, FL tomorrow night at a new venue to sign copies of my brand new book MTG. See you there!!”

In the three years since the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol, over 1,200 individuals have been criminally charged for their roles in the attack, according to Newsweek. The charges include around 440 people accused of assaulting, resisting, or obstructing officers or employees during the riot; 120 charged with using a dangerous weapon or causing serious injury to an officer; and four who pled guilty to seditious conspiracy against the government.
