Activists seek to keep Trump off the 2024 ballot
The campaign using the 14th Amendment will be titled “Trump is Disqualified.”
Two activist groups are launching a campaign to put pressure on state governments to not allow former President Donald Trump to appear on the ballot in 2024.
[This] week, Mi Familia Vota and Free Speech for People are expected to start holding rallies and drop banners in the states of California, Oregon, Colorado and Georgia, according to The Hill.
The groups say that the January 6 riot disqualifies Trump from running for office again, under the 14th Amendment. They cite Section 3 of the Amendment, which bars people from certain offices who “having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same.”
“We’re really focusing on Nevada and California and [Oregon, Colorado and Georgia] to make sure that they are taking a stand by disqualifying Trump in those spaces, which is something that the secretary of state can do,” said Héctor Sánchez, executive director of Mi Familia Vota, according to The Hill.
The campaign will be titled “Trump is Disqualified.”
“Trump is responsible for the January 6th insurrection, plain and simple,” said Alexandra Flores-Quilty, campaign director for Free Speech For People, The Hill reports.
“Failing to hold him responsible not only violates the Constitution, but it also sets a dangerous precedent for permitting violent attacks on our democracy,” she continued. “That’s not a risk we can afford to take.”
If Trump were to be disqualified from running by any secretary of state, it would be unprecedented and probably challenged in court. The groups say they still may have a shot.
