Judge: Marjorie Taylor Greene is Qualified for Re-election

A Georgia judge has ruled that conservative firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene may be included on the ballot for re-election, however, the decision must be made final by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

The Hill reports:

State Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot announced his decision after a daylong hearing in April that included arguments from lawyers for the voters and for Greene, as well as extensive questioning of Greene herself.

State law says Beaudrot must submit his findings to Raffensperger, who has to decide whether Greene should be removed from the ballot.

The challenge to Greene’s eligibility was filed by voters who allege the GOP congresswoman played a significant role in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot that disrupted Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election victory. That puts her in violation of a seldom-invoked part of the 14th Amendment having to do with insurrection and makes her ineligible to run for reelection, they argue.

During the April 22 hearing on the challenge, Ron Fein, a lawyer for the voters who filed the challenge, noted that in a TV interview the day before the attack at the U.S. Capitol, Greene said the next day would be “our 1776 moment.” Lawyers for the voters said some supporters of then-President Donald Trump used that reference to the American Revolution as a call to violence.

James Bopp, a lawyer for Greene, argued that his client engaged in protected political speech and was, herself, a victim of the attack on the Capitol, not a participant.

Congratulations MTG. You go girl!!!
It’s a sad or should I say a very sad day in America when she had to go through this.
This is just the beginning. Wait until the new minister of truth goes full bonkers after all of us.
Furthermore, look what’s happening to the young man from NC. They are trying their hardest to get him to not be reelected.
Please help both financially if you can.
I am. God Bless America

The “voters” in this article are most likely not representative of all of the voters in Representative Taylor-Greene’s district, but are Democrats trying to throw a monkey wrench into her campaign. This is a political lawsuit, not an actual pursuit for justice. If we had a law requiring that those making false accusations be subject to the penalty for the crime they allege, the plaintiffs would themselves become ineligible for public office. That would be fair, and it would deter future misuse of the legal system for political purposes.

“Raffy” is a RINO crook; who knows what he will do. MTG obviously wasn’t an insurrectionist. First, because an insurrection didn’t even occur but also because she wasn’t present!

So why does Raffensperger have to approve it? If the Judge said she is eligible, why does she have to also get permission from this commie? What a bunch of BS!

Should Maxine Waters be dropped from the California ballot because she famously encouraged her voters to confront Trump cabinet members — to form a group and get in their faces and shout “you don’t belong here any more!”

Explain why Democrats can encourage mob violence and celebrate burning down businesses, police stations, and federal buildings — with VP Harris raising money to bail the mobsters out of jail, while flag-waving senior adult Republicans are condemned as “domestic terrorists” for walking through the Capitol building snapping selfies at the invitation of police on Jan 6, 2021?
