On Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced her re-election campaign raised an astonishing $3.2 million in the Georgia Republican’s first three months in office. This is after reports detailed her embrace of conspiracy theories and support for executing prominent Democratic politicians.

Greene came under scrutiny for pushing Q-Anon-adjacent conspiracy theories in her first three months in Congress. She also already experienced confrontations with some of her Democratic colleagues and was stripped of her committee assignments. Campaign donors rewarded her handsomely for it.

“I am humbled, overjoyed, and so excited to announce what happened over the past few months as I have been the most attacked freshman member of Congress in history,” said Greene in a statement. “I stood my ground and never wavered in my belief in America First policies and putting People Over Politicians! And I will NEVER back down! As a matter of fact, I’m just getting started.”

In February the House voted to remove Greene from her committee assignments after her comments show encouragement of political violence, suggesting that the Parkland, Florida, school shooting was a “false flag” operation and conspiratorial claim that a space laser controlled by Jewish financiers started a California wildfire in 2018.

Greene brought in an eye-popping $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, January 1 to March 31, alone from 100,000 individual donors, and did not self-fund according to Politico’s Huddle newsletter on Wednesday.

By contrast, Greene raised a little over $3 million during her 2020 campaign for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, $950,000 of which she loaned her campaign.

Greene’s campaign has not yet filed its first-quarter fundraising numbers, but Greene spokesman Nick Dyer confirmed to Insider that she’d raised $3.2 million.

Greene has branded herself as the hard-right’s emissary to Congress, introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on his first day in office, as well as long-shot bills to ban private vaccine passports, “erase” the Equality Act and create strict new abortion restrictions.

Greene has come under fire from Democrats and Republicans alike for her controversial rhetoric, particularly her past comments and social media posts promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory, expressing belief in 9/11 and school shooting conspiracy theories and even endorsing violence against top Democrats.

“I’ve been freed,” Greene said at a press conference after all House Democrats and 11 Republicans voted to strip her of her committee assignments in February. “If I was on a committee, I’d be wasting my time because my concerns and values wouldn’t be heard, and neither would my districts,” she stated.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), another freshman right-wing firebrand often affiliated with Greene, raised $700,000 in the first quarter. State Sen. Kerry Donovan, one of Boebert’s Democratic challengers, raised $630,000 during the same period.

In early April, Green has been the focus of Twitter censorship, being suspended twice without any explanation.

According to Twitter, Green’s suspension on Easter was a mistake.

“We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service. In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated,” a Twitter spokesperson said.

In a post on Gab, a Twitter alternative, Greene had suggested the suspension was the result of the below tweet she posted wishing her followers a happy Easter.

In her first three months in Congress, AOC netted just over $726,000.

    Sadly the only thing that will shut LIBERALS up is a gag holding a dirty sock in their mouths. Well a pile of socks given how big most LIBERALS mouths are. Look at AOC and Omar to see that FACT.
