She brought up the result in a tweet that would likely seem innocuous if one were to know nothing about her penchant for misinformation. In it she pledged to “represent the people, not the politicians”.
Back in November the Georgia congresswoman received 74.7 per cent of her district’s vote, suggesting 25 per cent of the area’s electorate would rather nobody represented them than someone with no past political experience that thought Pizzagate was real.
People found it odd that she would take a disproportionate amount of pride in winning a one horse-race.
It wasn’t always that way – her competitor, Kevin Van Ausdal, dropped out of the election two months beforehand after his divorce rendered him ineligible due to no longer being able to live in the relevant district.
She somehow managed to win with even less of a majority than her predecessor, Tom Graves, who actually had somebody to compete with.
