Ballot Cleansing: Democrats are Moving to Bar Republicans from Ballots Nationwide

• Ron Paul Institute - Jonathan Turley

Below is my column in the New York Post on the expansion of the 14th Amendment theory to attempt to remove Republican candidates for Congress from the ballots. Dozens of Democratic members have already called for the disqualification of up to 126 Republican colleagues under the same sweeping theory. These efforts show how this theory could place this country on a slippery slope to political chaos if not clearly and finally rejected by the Supreme Court.

Here is the column:

As the decisions disqualifying former President Donald Trump from the 2024 election work their way through the courts, a new filing in Pennsylvania seeks the same "ballot cleansing" by barring Repubfenablican Rep. Scott Perry.

It's only the latest effort targeting congressional candidates as Democrats seek to bar opponents as "insurrectionists" for questioning the election of President Biden.
