Yet another group is suing to have Donald Trump removed from the election ballot.
This time, it is in Michigan.
The suit was brought by Free Speech For People on behalf of Robert LaBrant, Andrew Bradway, Norah Murphy, and William Nowling.
Here We Go Again
Just like the other cases, they are claiming that Trump should be disqualified via the 14th Amendment.
Mark Brewer, the former Michigan Democratic Party Chair and an attorney for Free Speech For People, claimed, “Despite knowing that violence was ongoing at the Capitol and that his violent supporters would heed a call from him to withdraw, for 187 minutes, Trump refused repeated requests that he instruct his violent supporters to disperse and leave the Capitol.
“Instead, he reveled in the violent attack as it unfolded on television.
“The events of January 6, 2021, amounted to an insurrection or rebellion under Section 3: a violent, coordinated effort to storm the Capitol to obstruct and prevent the Vice President of the United States and the United States Congress from fulfilling their constitutional roles by certifying President Biden’s victory, and to illegally extend then-President Trump’s tenure in office.”
A case just like this was just tossed by the Supreme Court, so there is no way this will be successful.
Even the Secretary of State for Michigan disregarded the suit.
Secretary of State David Scanlan stated, “In a situation where some states permit a name to appear on the ballot and other states disqualify it, chaos, confusion, anger, and frustration will be the result.
“At a time when we need to ensure transparency and build confidence among voters around the country, the delegate selection process should not be the battleground to test this constitutional question.”
This is just idiots being idiotic… nothing more.
