Disqualified from Holding Public Office

For those members of Congress or former members of Congress, or those who held or now hold a state or local elected public office, and took part in the Trump insurrection against the government of the United States you are now and forever disqualified from holding public office, under the 14th Amendment, Section Three, U.S. Constitution.

Mr. Trump you are disqualified.

Section Three, 14th Amendment, U.S. Constitution.

 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.

How to Disqualify Insurrectionists from Congress:
Interview w/John Bonifaz of Free Speech

Glenn Kirschner, Jul 30, 2022

We have insurrectionists running for reelection to Congress. We have the insurrectionist-in-chief, Donald Trump, flirting with another presidential run.

The good news is, the 14th Amendment prohibits insurrections from getting re-elected to public office. But how is section 3 of the 14th Amendment enforced?

One way its being enforced is by the truly heroic efforts of John Bonifaz and his organization Free Speech For People. They're filing lawsuits against insurrections in Congress - from Marjorie Taylor Greene to Paul Gosar, and others - and seeking to have judges disqualify them from the ballot for there conduct in connection with the January 6 insurrection.

I sat down with John for an extended conversation about his democracy-saving efforts.
