Controversial Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) are rallying in support of the widely-panned Arizona audit.
On Monday, Gaetz posted a tweet complaining about the Justice Department worrying the audit is violating federal law.
Greene retweeted the Florida congressman and suggested the two travel to Arizona.
"After all, the people payed (sic) for those ballots and everything to do with the AZ elections," she wrote.
In a follow-up tweet, Greene seemed to blame autocorrect for changing "paid" to "payed."
*paid. Gotta love autocorrect.— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸)1620672688.0
Greene was quickly ridiculed. Here's some of what people were saying:
I've never seen autocorrect change a correct word into a nonexistent one before. Huh.

The most trumpian of tweets. As if autocorrect would turn paid into payed. Just own your ignorance; probably won't lose you any votes.

Gotta love some US Representative who not only doesn't PROOF READ but can't take responsibility for misspellings. A shining example of a poor student.

Autocorrect isn't that stupid.

Autocorrect doesn't work like that, you dope.

That's not autocorrect, sweetie. You're just not very smart.

Did autocorrect spell the word wrong?

Ha! I don't believe this for a second. You spelled it wrong - don't lie.
