Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls for Resignation of Georgia Republican

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, called for the resignation of Brian Pritchard, the first vice chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. This demand came after it was revealed that Pritchard had illegally voted nine times.

Georgia Judge Lisa Boggs has made a ruling on Wednesday, stating that Pritchard had violated state election laws. This violation occurred when he decided to cast his vote in nine different elections during the early-mid 2000s. It is important to note that Pritchard was serving probation for a felony check forgery sentence at the time.

“Brian Pritchard must resign immediately,” wrote Greene on her personal account on X, formerly known as Twitter. She emphasized that the Republican Party stands for election integrity.

“After the 2020 election, which experienced widespread voter fraud in Georgia, it is imperative for our state party to take the lead in ensuring the security of our elections.”

Greene expressed her strong objection to having Brian Pritchard, a man who has been involved in multiple instances of voter fraud, in a leadership position within the Georgia Republican Party. She emphasized the importance of protecting the state from a complete Democrat takeover and stated that it is unacceptable for someone with a history of voter fraud to be in a position of power. Greene called for Pritchard’s immediate resignation or removal from office.

Pritchard, a lifelong Republican and conservative political analyst, was elected as the first vice chair of the Georgia GOP in June 2023. He has made a commitment to uphold the Constitution and advocate for Christian values, as stated on his campaign website.

Both Greene and Pritchard share a common belief – they both assert that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent. Following Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump persistently contended that the election was rigged against him through extensive voter fraud. Despite there being no evidence to substantiate Trump’s claims, certain Republican party members have persisted in alleging that the election was neither fair nor free.

According to court records from Alleghany County, Pennsylvania, it is revealed that in 1996, Pritchard admitted his guilt in forgery and theft charges. He had deposited checks worth $38,000 while working on a construction project.

Initially, he was placed on probation for three years. However, his sentence was extended until 2011 due to allegations of failing to pay restitution. Pritchard, on the other hand, has consistently maintained that he did not owe any money.

Pritchard claimed during his testimony in February that he thought his sentence had concluded in 1999. However, prosecutors in Georgia presented evidence that demonstrated his probation had been revoked and extended multiple times. In Georgia, it is against the law for felons to vote until they have fully served their sentences.

According to state prosecutors, Pritchard demonstrated awareness of his ongoing sentence by attending probation revocation hearings in Pennsylvania in 1999, 2002, and 2004. However, Pritchard refuted claims of attending the hearings in 2002 and 2004.

In her decision, Boggs stated that she does not find Pritchard’s claims credible or convincing. She further mentioned that even if the court were to accept his lack of knowledge about his felony sentences, the evidence presented clearly indicates that he should have been aware of them.
