A judge in Georgia rejected arguments from a group of voters who challenged her eligibility.

According to The Hill, State Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot extensively questioned Greene as well as hearing from both sides’ lawyers.

The group of five voters from her district argued that Greene played a significant role in the January 6th, 2021 disruption of Congress’ certification of the 2020 election.

They said that put her in violation of a rarely-invoked clause of the 14th Amendment which deals with insurrection and made her ineligible to run.

They specifically pointed to her comment in a TV interview the day before the rally when Greene said the next day would be “our 1776 moment”. The challenge alleged that was a call to violence.

State law says the judge must submit his findings to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who ultimately has the final decision.

Raffensperger is facing a primary challenge after refusing to oblige former President Donald Trump’s request to investigate overturning Biden’s win in Georgia.
