Firebrand Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said Friday that her chief of staff, Patrick Parsons, is resigning in order to work more directly on electing “America First conservatives” to Washington, the Washington Examiner reports.
“I want to thank my Chief of Staff, Patrick Parsons, for helping me take the fight to the Socialist Democrats as I’ve transitioned into Congress,” Greene, a freshman in Congress’ lower chamber, said in a Friday tweet.
“He’s advised me he will be moving back into the political arena to help elect America First conservatives who can fight alongside me,” she added.

“Continuing my work”
In a statement of his own, Parsons called his work to help elect Greene and later serving in her congressional office “the highlight of my professional career.”
According to the Examiner, he also referred to Greene as “an America First superstar who has become one of the leading policy-influencers in our party today.”
“America needs hundreds more MTGs in Congress and all levels of public service, and I’m going to help get them there,” he said.
“I look forward to continuing my work with Marjorie to Save America and Stop Socialism,” Parsons added.
The next adventure
Some have suggested Parsons quit after Greene’s recent “meltdown” on the steps of the Capitol Building. However, Parsons himself has disputed this claim, acknowledging his full support of the incident.
“The Dingells have been supporting and funding the slaughter of babies for 66 years,” Parsons wrote in a tweet. “MTG right again.” Take a look:

The now-former congressional staffer may be done with Greene, but he is certainly not done with politics. Only time will tell where his passion for making America great will take Parsons next.
