A central Florida venue has canceled an event that was to have featured Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., after it learned the event was intended to commemorate the third anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The event was set to be hosted by the Republican Party of Osceola County at the Westgate Resorts in Kissimmee. It was originally pitched to Westgate as a small book-signing event featuring Greene, without mention of Jan. 6.
“Please be advised that Westgate was not made aware of the purpose of this event when we were approached to host a book signing,” Westgate Resorts said in a statement. “This event has been canceled and is no longer taking place at our resort.”
It was ultimately billed as an “exclusive event with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene” on the “occasion” of the “3rd Anniversary of Jan 6.”
The cost to attend was to be $45 to $1,000 to meet Greene. It also said those who attended would “receive a signed copy of her book.”✱
