Judge says MTG (I don't recall anything) is qualified to run for reelection

The final decision now goes to the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (Republican).

ATLANTA (AP)A judge in Georgia on Friday found that U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is qualified to 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 the decision will ultimately be up to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Before reaching his decision, state Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot held a daylong hearing in April that included arguments from lawyers for the voters and for Greene, as well as extensive questioning of Greene herself. He also received extensive briefing from both sides.

State law says Beaudrot must submit his findings to Raffensperger, who has to decide whether Greene should be removed from the ballot.

A Raffensperger spokesperson said in an email that the secretary of state had received Beaudrot's recommendation and “will release his final decision soon.”

I hear that Benedict Arnold is running neck-and-neck with Rafael Trujillo in Wyoming.

Raffensberger is in a tight race, he won’t do anything to piss of the far, far right, even though she is not qualified to run for so many reasons, including being guilty of sedition.

I think Raffensberger standing up to 45*'s 'gimme a break here' was about as bold as he's going to go.

He doesn't seem likely to pull the pin on an MTG grenade.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I was going to post this under the Friday Funnies on the other side, but it seems more appropriate here:

I think that the condition that the Constitutional amendment refers to is having been on the Confederate side in the Civil War. It's a big stretch to apply it to somebody who emotionally supports a riot and didn't herself take up arms against the lawful government. I also have a problem with creating a precedent that the Republicans would use to retaliate against anybody they don't like.

The judge in the case agreed that she did not have to actually engage in violence to be guilty.

She's such a moron. She posted on Twitter that she had been acquitted.

This is the problem with these kind of things. Is she a horrible person? Sure. But was this kind of legal action ever going to succeed? Not likely.

I mean, put Gaetz in jail first. Or at the least, force him out of politics. This swing-at-and-miss stuff if frankly counterproductive, and gives her supporters a reason to support her, even if they know she is a wacko.
