Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene blamed her political opponents for attempting to "steal" voters' capacity to reelect her. The Republican firebrand said Monday that she has had to defend herself without the help of the Republican Party amid a legal effort that aspires to disqualify her from reelection because she helped with the Capitol riot. “They are trying to rip my name off the ballot and steal my district’s ability to reelect me and send me back to Congress,” Greene said in an interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson. The constitutional appeal, filed by a group of Peach State voters with the Georgia secretary of state last month, accuses Greene of “voluntarily [aiding] and [engaging] in an insurrection to obstruct the peaceful transfer of presidential power” in connection to the January 6 Capitol riot as the reason to disqualify her candidacy. The challengers claim the congresswoman violated a part of the Fourteenth Amendment, which dates back to the Civil War, forbidding politicians from running if they have participated in “insurrection or rebellion.” The challengers are being represented by Free Speech for People, which claims to be a nonpartisan, nonprofit legal advocacy organization.

He added that Greene had “publicly and vigorously condemned the attack on the Capitol.” Greene, who is running for a second term and has voiced concerns about the jailing of January 6 defendants, said her next court appearance would be later this week.

Georgia law says any voter who is qualified to vote for a candidate may challenge that candidate’s qualifications by filing a written complaint within two weeks after the deadline for qualifying. The secretary of state must then inform the candidate of the challenge and request a hearing before an administrative law judge. After holding a hearing, the administrative law judge presents the findings to the secretary of state, who then must determine whether the candidate is qualified.
