Effort to boot Greene from ballot could open new avenue of attack

A federal judge has decided to permit the advance of a legal attempt to prohibit Republican US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) from seeking reelection because of her alleged involvement in the attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election. While observers suspect that Rep. Greene will remain on the 2022 ballot, the judge’s decision means that Greene will be the first sitting Republican Member of Congress forced to testify under oath about possible complicity in the attack on the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021. Legal experts are also considering whether this case might open the door toward challenging the legitimacy of other future candidates who may have been guilty of insurrection – including former president Donald Trump.
