ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - A coalition of legal scholars and activists are challenging Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ability to run for re-election.

The challenge is a result of a video that Greene posted before the Jan. 6 insurrection. In the video, Greene says she is opposed to the transfer of power after the 2021 election because then President-elect Biden “did not win this election” and is “guilty of treason.”

The coalition also cited her social media posts and news reports about alleged meetings with Jan. 6 organizers.

Free Speech for People and Our Revolution say Greene is disqualified for running for re-election under the 14th Amendment, which prohibits lawmakers from returning to office if they support a insurrection.

Their filing could potentially force Greene to testify under oath about the capitol riot.

Greene says she never encouraged political violence and never will.
