Name sarcastically “Free speech for peopleLiberal Republican Marjorie Taylor has filed a lawsuit seeking to bar Green from seeking re-election.
A federal judge has blocked a similar lawsuit in North Carolina earlier this month to bar Republican Madison Catherine from running for re-election.
The group, which represents a group of Georgia Democrats, has claimed that Green violated a provision in the US Constitution known as the “Rebel Disqualification Clause,” according to a Reuters report.
In their legal challenge filed with Georgia’s Secretary of State on Thursday, the agency cited a civil war-era clause that prohibits politicians from running in Congress if they “coup or rebel” against the United States or provide “comfort” to the nation’s enemies.
The group, led by Democrat lawyer Mark Elias, is behind the Trump-Russia deception and is “downplaying” the Capitol protests on the basis of their far-reaching demands on Green.
“After taking an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, before and after January 6, 2021, Green volunteered and was involved in a coup to prevent the peaceful transfer of power to the presidency,” the lawsuit states.
The company had earlier lodged a complaint with the NCSBE alleging that Rep. Cawthorn “does not meet the federal constitutional requirements for a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and is therefore ineligible to be a candidate for such office.”
They lost, but the group claimed that the congressman was involved in a “revolt or insurrection” against the United States on January 6 and was therefore disqualified from being a member of Congress under the U.S. Constitution.
According to a statement to The Gateway Pundit, Republican Catherine vehemently denied that he was “involved in a revolt or insurrection” against the United States and that he had “filed a counter suit to order the NCSBE to impose unconstitutional provisions of the North Carolina Electoral Act.” Get it off the ballot. ‘
“Under North Carolina law, a challenger can only challenge someone’s eligibility to run for office on the basis of reasonable doubt or belief that the stated information disqualifies the candidate from running for office and then carries the burden of proof that he or she is eligible. Run for office. -The change turns our legal system on its head, for which someone has to prove his ‘innocence’ when challenging, “his office said in a statement.
Rep. Cawthorn argued that the Challenge Statute violated his First Amendment right by launching an official investigation based solely on a challenger’s “reasonable suspicion.” To remove the burden of proof on him by violating his due process rights under the Fourteenth Amendment to prove that he was not involved in “rebellion or rebellion”; It is unconstitutional because it ignores the exclusive power of the US House of Representatives to determine the qualifications of its members; And violates federal law because the “disqualification clause” of the Fourteenth Amendment, due to the Amnesty Act of 1872, no longer applies to the three current members of Congress.
“Running for office is not only a great privilege, it is a constitutional right,” Republican Catherine said in a statement to the TGP. “I love this country and have never been involved in a rebellion against the United States. Regardless of the fact that the disqualification clause and the North Carolina Challenge Constitution are being used as a weapon by liberal Democrats to try to defeat our democracy by state bureaucrats, instead of the people, who will represent North Carolina in Congress. I am defending not only my rights but also the people’s right to elect their representatives democratically. “
Rep. Catherine’s lawyer added that the people of North Carolina should be able to choose their representative.
“North Carolina law is unjust and unconstitutional, as it applies to Rep. Catherine,” said James Bopp, Jr., chief counsel for Bop Law Firm, Republic of Catherine. “The Challenge Statute violates the right to freedom of speech, due process and fundamental principles of federal law. It is clearly unjust and unconstitutional to ask someone to prove that he did nothing on the basis of ‘suspicion.’ There is no state bureaucrat. “
“But unfortunately, this is not an isolated effort,” Bopp said. “A few months ago, Mark Elias, the Democrat lawyer behind Trump’s Russia scam, announced a nationwide effort to disqualify nearly two dozen Republicans in Congress under this bizarre legal theory. Rep. Two dozen Democrats are running without a Republican nominee, cementing control of Democrats in Congress, a decisive effort that needs to be stopped here and now, and Republican Catherine has promised to do everything necessary to do so.
The post-liberal body that filed the lawsuit is trying to prevent Madison Catherine from running for re-election.
