Judge: Marjorie Taylor Greene is qualified for reelection
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger has accepted a judge’s findings and says Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is qualified to run for reelection.
Earlier today, a judge determined that U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can run for reelection, finding that a group of voters who had challenged her eligibility failed to prove she engaged in insurrection after taking office.
But by law, the decision was ultimately up to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
State Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot announced his decision Friday 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.
