Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is begging her fans for funds again, claiming that donations will help keep her on the ballot after a judge has ruled against her.
Greene, like her North Carolina counterpart Madison Cawthorne, is facing a legal challenge to her candidacy, thanks to her support of the attack on Congress last January, and a post-civil-war law forbidding insurrectionists from running for office. On Monday night, Law&Crime reports, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg ruled against her efforts to block the challenge from moving forward.
Greene and Cawthorn’s attorney has argued that the 1872 Amnesty Act forgave both past and future insurrectionists, but Totenberg disagreed. The challenge will now go on to an administrative law judge on Friday.
Greene turned to Gab, where she declared both herself and Northwest Georgians to be the victims of “attorneys from New York,” although it was Georgia voters who brought the challenge against her, and claimed that she’s been representing the people of her district in D.C. by “fighting their Communist agenda,” although in fact her antisemitic rants and propaganda have gotten her kicked off all the committees she was previously assigned to, so that she has no real power to influence legislation.
She wanted her voters that Democrats are ” attempting to RIP [Greene] off the ballot,” out of hatred for them, the voters, and returned to the social site Tuesday morning to warn voters that their “right to vote for [Greene]” was being stolen, offering a link for her fans to donate to her cause.
