Some Democrats are using the anniversary of January 6 to launch an effort to have Republicans disqualified from the midterm elections if they had ever supported the effort to change the 2020 election results.
Apparently, wanting to make sure that all of the LEGAL votes were counted makes those Republicans “insurrectionists.” At least, that’s the way the left is telling it.
The effort is being spearheaded by Russia hoaxer Marc Elias.
"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress…who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress…shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."-US Constitution

Elias aims to use a provision of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment that was intended to keep Confederates out of the American government.
My prediction for 2022: Before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House Members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress.
We may even see litigation. pic.twitter.com/pF7P2fw0kn
