Democrats once again have failed in their attempt to use a Civil War-era provision that those who took part in the Confederacy could not later return to Congress against a sitting member of Congress.

The Washington Examiner explained that Judge Charles Beaudrot, from Georgia's office of State Administrative Hearings, has recommended to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger that a claim of "insurrection" against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, R-Ga., be dropped. [I find it ironic that Raffensberger [Ratburger) is attacking Marjorie when there have been so many allegations of voting fraud in GA many involving Dominion machines: https://www.sos.ga.gov/news/election-fraud-cases-sent-prosecution-dominion-refutes-disinformation  Now watch 2000 mules for a competing analysis. This attack against Marjorie is 'lawfare' ained at preventing her from running for office. - ED]

Raffensperger will make the final decision regarding Greene, who is very popular in her conservative northwest Georgia district, and is just as unpopular in Washington for her blunt, brash and direct way of calling out hypocrisy there.

Democrats wanted her removed from the ballot because she repeatedly has raised questions about the validity and accuracy of the 2020 election, which also was the focus of many who took part in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Democrats already have filed multiple lawsuits against Republicans claiming that they are barred from the ballot because they took part in an "insurrection."

However, the claim of "insurrection" comes only for their own talking points, and legal experts say for the provision to apply there would have to be an adjudication of "insurrectionist," which is far from likely.

group of Democrats from Greene's district claimed that she was involved in the riot, so therefore she is an "insurrectionist," so therefore she cannot run for office again, under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
