Lawsuit Challenging Marjorie Taylor Greene Reelection Can Proceed

A Lawsuit seeking to Block Rrepresentative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA, 14th District) from seeking Reelection, alleging she is Unfit for Office because of her Support of Rioters who Attacked the U.S. Capitol, can proceed, a Federal Judge ruled Monday.

In a Legal challenge filed with the Georgia Secretary of State, a group of Voters claimed Greene Violated, a provision of the U.S. Constitution passed after the U.S. Civil War known as the "Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause." Greene sought a Temporary Injunction against that Lawsuit, arguing it was unlikely to be resolved before Georgia's Primary Elections on May 24th.

Judge Amy Totenberg of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia wrote, in a 73-page ruling on the Injunction, that the Court focused on whether Greene could "establish a strong likelihood of prevailing on the merits of her legal claims."

Greene had Failed "to establish a substantial likelihood of success on the merits," Totenberg wrote.

Greene has Downplayed and Justified the Jan. 6, 2021, Attack, in which Supporters of Trump stormed the Capitol, battling with Police, to gain entry to the building.

The Attack followed a fiery speech by Trump near the White House Repeated his False Claims that his 2020 Election Defeat was the result of widespread Fraud. He told the Rally to March to the Capital, which was telling them to do an Illegal Act per the Rally Permit.

"Jan. 6 was just a riot at the Capitol and if you think about what our Declaration of Independence says, it says to overthrow tyrants," Greene said during a Radio Program in October, 2021.

She then said in a statement earlier this year, that she Opposes All forms of Political Violence.
