The 2 most popular memecoins, Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, have infiltrated American political discourse.


Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers argues in a tweet that she doesn't understand these coins, but she does understand freedom, saying that people should be able to purchase whatever cryptocurrency they want.


The apparent move to attract the communities behind the two popular canine cryptocurrency follows Rogers' introduction of a measure last week to make Bitcoin legal tender in Arizona.


On Monday, the pro-Trump Republican, who has earned prominence for his involvement in the election-denial movement and a slew of headline-grabbing provocative comments, advocated exempting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies from property taxes.


Members of the XRP community, feeling left out, began bombarding Rogers' Twitter account with mentions of the Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency.


To the joy of the community, the lawmaker ended up questioning her fans about the contentious cryptocurrency.


Her remark, as expected, sparked yet another old discussion between supporters of Bitcoin and XRP. On-chain analyst Dylan LeClair slammed the latter as a "scam," infuriating the XRP Army.


The Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States has filed a lawsuit against Ripple for unregistered XRP sales.
