Sordid details about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) emerged this week when the Daily Mail reported that she cheated on her husband with a tantric sex guru and manager at her gym.
The QAnon-supporting congresswoman reportedly had trysts with polyamorous tantric sex practitioner Craig Ivey and gym manager Justin Tway in 2012, while she worked at gyms in Atlanta suburb Alpharetta.
Neither man denied the affairs to the Daily Mail. Tway declined to discuss the issue, adding, “Everything with her comes to no good.”
Another person who worked closely with Greene told the paper, “Everyone who moved in her circles knew about both the affairs.”
A politician having an affair is hardly earth-shattering news, but Greene’s scandals are considerable for two reasons. For one, they seem to directly contradict her identity as a “strong conservative Christian” who endeavors to bring her “family values to Washington.”
Secondly, her tantric ex-lover is a pro-Black Lives Matter hunk who reenacts medieval sword fights.
Ivey, who goes by @the_tantric_warrior on Instagram, has shared several posts of him reenacting medieval battles and sharpening his sword skills. A photo obtained by the Daily Mail also shows him dressed as Zangief from the Street Fighter series, sporting a mohawk, thick beard, and red and gold wrestling trunks.
In another photo obtained by the Daily Mail, Ivey can be seen wearing a Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson hoodie and mock MAGA hat that says “MADE YOU LOOK. BLACK LIVES MATTER.”
Twitter users obviously relished this bombshell revelation about Greene’s private life. In one fell swoop, the freshman congresswoman managed to seemingly outdo former President Donald Trump’s decades of sex scandals.
While Greene’s myriad critics enjoyed calling her out on her hypocrisy, many people also agreed that Ivey was dripping with swagger and way out of her league.
The New Yorker’s Charles Bethea, who profiled Greene last October, noted that she was baptized in an evangelical church in Atlanta in 2011, shortly before she began her dalliances.
Many of Greene’s critics, some of whom also identified as Christians, struggled to reconcile Greene’s apparent faith with what they considered to be her superiority complex and tendency to judge others for perceived transgressions.
Despite her extramarital affairs, Greene remains with her husband, Perry Greene, whom she married in 1995 and with whom she shares three kids.
When reached for comment, Greene’s communications director Nick Dyer told the Daily Dot via email, “Are you really going to reprint these salacious unproven lies? Grow up.”
