A source familiar with the donation told the publication that Carlson’s contribution was actually a bid for a rifle Greene was auctioning off as a campaign fundraiser.
A source familiar with the donation told The Hill that the contribution is connected to a bid Carlson placed on a rifle worth an estimated $10,000 that Greene was auctioning off to raise money for her campaign last year.
The weapon is a Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle, which, according to the raffle webpage is “the same type of gun that TRIGGERS the Fake News Media and Democrats all across the country.”
It is unknown whether Carlson had the winning bid.
HuffPost reached out to Greene’s campaign for a comment, but no one immediately responded.
