California and Maine are reportedly looking to remove former President Donald Trump from the 2024 ballot, following a similar move by Colorado to refuse citizens their democratic right to vote.
The Colorado Supreme Court voted Tuesday to remove Trump from the 2024 ballot in a 3-4 decision. “We do not reach these conclusions lightly,” the majority justices wrote following the ruling. “We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us. We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach.” (LEARN MORE: Supreme Court To Hear Ultimate Free Speech, Censorship Case)
What Is Happening in California & Maine?
By Wednesday, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows was reportedly looking at options to remove Trump from the state’s ballot, according to Breitbart. A hearing was held in mid-December so attorneys could argue to keep Trump off the primary ballot in March.
Again, the argument to keep Trump off the ticket is focused on unfounded legal claims that he instigated and organized an “insurrection” on January 6 at the Capitol. (LEARN MORE: Biden Sued Over Conservative Censorship)
Similarly, California’s Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis wrote to the Secretary of State Shirley Weber to explore taking Trump off the state’s ballot, saying what happened in Colorado was about “honoring the rule of law and protecting the fundamental pillars of our democracy.” This statement confused many people online because refusing to let the American people vote for the candidate of their choice is an actual attack on democracy.
