GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has caught the attention of federal investigators who are seeking more information on her re-election fundraising account.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked Greene to provide the source of $3.5 million in contributions to her re-election campaign, according to Newsweek.

In two filings posted to the FEC website on Monday and surfaced on Twitter by Georgia Public Broadcasting reporter Stephen Fowler on Tuesday, the congresswoman’s husband Perry Greene—her campaign treasurer— was asked to provide additional details about donations the campaign received during the first two quarters of 2021.

Under federal law, candidates are required to reveal information about donors who contribute more than $200 aggregate in an election cycle.

During the first six months of 2021, Green’s campaign reported most of its contributions. However, the campaign did not reveal the source of $3,525,677.34, according to GPB News reporter Stephen Fowler.

With Greene’s campaign only reporting the source of 22 percent of its contributions, the FEC has sent letters asking for more information on each of Green’s 2021 quarterly reports.

The FEC has given the Greene campaign until October 12 to provide clarification about the $3.5 million. To comply with FEC rules, the campaign must either provide information about the donors or show that the money came from small donors only—from at least 17,630 different individuals contributing no more than $199.99 each.
