A gaggle of Georgia voters has filed a lawsuit claiming that Greene violated the 14th Modification of the Structure by serving to to facilitate the rebel.

Free Speech For The Individuals is representing the voters, and so they supplied a press release to PoliticusUSA:

A gaggle of Georgia voters filed a authorized problem in the present day to Consultant Marjorie Taylor Greene’s candidacy for re-election in 2022. The problem, filed with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, alleges that Greene is constitutionally disqualified from public workplace below Part Three of the Fourteenth Modification to the U.S. Structure, on the grounds that she helped facilitate the January 6, 2021 rebel.

….

Anybody in search of to run for public workplace in Georgia “shall meet the constitutional and statutory {qualifications} for the workplace being sought.” Underneath Georgia’s candidacy problem statute, as soon as a problem is filed, the Secretary of State should request a listening to earlier than an Administrative Legislation Choose of the Workplace of State Administrative Hearings to find out whether or not the candidate is certified for workplace. The burden of proof then shifts to the candidate, who must “affirmatively set up [their] eligibility for workplace.” The challengers intend to situation subpoenas to Greene and take her deposition below oath—one thing that the U.S. Home January 6 Choose Committee has not but accomplished.

 

Michael Rasbury, who is among the voters in Greene’s district bringing the problem mentioned, “I consider in democracy. Once I served within the Military, I needed to take an oath of workplace to guard and defend the Structure from all enemies, international and home. All the pieces I’ve learn says Rep. Greene was concerned within the Jan. sixth rebel that was making an attempt to override all the pieces I consider in – Our Structure, how we run elections, and the way our authorities is about up. She shouldn’t be on the poll.”

If these authorized challenges have been to achieve success, Home Republicans like Greene and Rep. Madison Cawthorn could be disqualified from appearing on a ballot in their respective states. 

The lawsuit is a reminder that Greene is accountable to the voters of her district, and the voters haven’t forgotten concerning the 1/6 assault or the position that some Home Republicans reportedly performed in helping it.

Marjorie Taylor Greene could possibly be on her solution to discovering out that tried coups have penalties.
