Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime Guttenberg was a victim in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida in 2018, has obtained video that appears to show Marjorie Taylor Greene, now a U.S. Congresswoman, harassing one of the teenagers who spoke publically about his experience.
David Hogg, a student at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas at the time of the Parkland shooting, became the center of conspiracy theories as right-wing figures made up stories about the teenager for speaking out after the attack. While the young man addressed gun control with his own experience as a central point, he was attacked on social media and in person. Now a video shared by Guttenberg seems to show just how involved in the attacks Greene was.
.@mtgreenee, is this you harassing @davidhogg111 weeks after the Parkland shooting, that my daughter was killed in & he was in? Calling him a coward for ignoring your insanity. I will answer all of your questions in person. Get ready to record again.pic.twitter.com/aQjL74x7kh

In the clip above, Hogg is walking down a street, apparently in D.C. Greene speaks at the end of the clip to identify the location, saying that Hogg was in the Senate and was able to speak to legislators, while she was ignored, despite being a gun owner, which she appears to think is some sort of access pass.
“He got to talk to senators. I got to talk to none! He had media coverage all over the place. I had zero! Guess what. I’m a gun owner. I’m an American citizen.”
The Washington Post reports that Greene embraced conspiracy theories claiming that the shooting never happened and was a ‘false flag,’ and that advocates for the victims, including other students who survived the attack, are calling for her resignation over this and other transgressions.
