The Arizona Supreme Court has rejected an attempt by the radical left to remove three conservative legislators from the 2022 ballot for attending the protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
This is a losing issue for the Democrats, so they’re weaponizing the courts to suppress conservative speech all across the country.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also needed to fight a lawsuit just to stay on the ballot.
The American people know that the 2020 election was stolen, and a majority of Republican voters say the January 6 protest was a patriotic event.
On Monday, the court ruled that Representative Andy Biggs, Representative Paul Gosar, and State Rep. Mark Finchem are qualified to remain on the 2022 Primary ballot, affirming the superior court’s judgment. Reps Biggs and Gosar are seeking reelection to the U.S. House, and Mark Finchem is running for Arizona Secretary of State to secure elections in Arizona.
“Plaintiffs have failed to state a claim upon which relief may be granted,” said the court.
Fox 10 reported,
The lawsuits filed on behalf of a handful of Arizona voters alleged that Gosar, Biggs and Finchem can’t hold office because they participated in an insurrection. They cited a section of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution enacted after the Civil War known as the “disqualification clause.”
The justices ruled that alleged violations of the disqualification clause are not grounds for challenging a candidate’s eligibility for office under Arizona law. Their decision upholds a ruling by the Maricopa County Superior Court.
None of the lawmakers are accused of participating in the actual attack on Congress that was intended to stop certification of President Joe Biden’s win.
According to the website Constitution Annotated, which describes itself as ‘a comprehensive, government-sanctioned record of the interpretations of the Constitution,’ the disqualification clause refers to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which reads:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, 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, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Democrats know they can’t win at the ballot, so they cheat.
