The initial decision of Judge Beaudrot and the conclusions of fact and the conclusions of law are ADOPTED.

Therefore, IT IS DECIDED that Respondent MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE is QUALIFIED to stand for the position of United States Representative for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District. SO DECIDED, this May 6, 2022.

Georgia voters will appeal for the disqualification of Marjorie Taylor Greene

Voters had urged the Secretary of State to reject the judge’s recommendation and disqualify Greene from the ballot.

In a brief statement provided to PoliticusUSA, the group representing the electorate, Free Speech For People, said: “The Secretary of State of Georgia upheld the recommendation of the administrative law judge. We will appeal this decision to the Georgia Superior Court. “

The process of disqualifying a candidate in Georgia is not a short one. Greene isn’t out of the woods yet. Voters have yet to prove that Representative Greene was directly involved in the insurgency.

1/6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said the committee “knows things” about Greene. However, it is not known whether these things will be enough evidence to disqualify Greene from the ballot or if they will emerge before this case comes to an end. ‘
