Trump Disqualified to be on Colorado Ballot Because of Insurrection
The Colorado Supreme Court has voted 4-3 to disqualify former President Donald Trump from being on the state’s ballot. The divided ruling cited the 14th Amendment, Section 3 as the legal justification in the landmark ruling stating that Trump cannot hold public office due to his involvement in the attempted insurrection during the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. The Secretary of State has been directed to exclude his name from the Republican Primary ballot.
14th Amendment, Section 3:
”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.”
