A recent Federal Court of Appeals ruling found that rebels, whether or not they are current officers, could be locked out of ballots.

According to the Bloomberg method:

Candidates who participated in the riots may be barred from taking office under Article 14 of the Amendment to the US Constitution, and the Federal Court of Appeals ruled, overturning the judgment of the inferior court judge.

….

The ruling is legally binding only in the states that make up the Fourth Circuit (Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina), but the events surrounding January 6, 2021. Is an attack on the Capitol.

The ruling could also affect cases in other parts of the country involving Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene, Andy Biggs, and Paul Gosar.

The following is a list of Republican candidates who may be kicked out of ballot.

The DCCC has provided Politicus USA with a list of Republican challengers who have confirmed their participation in the rebellion and may be expelled from the ballot.

  • WI-03 Candidate Derrick Van Oden

  • NV-04 Candidate Annie Black

  • OH-09 Nominee JR Majewski

  • NC-01 Nominee Sandy Smith

  • IA-03 Candidate Gary Refler

  • NJ-03 candidate Ian Smith

Each of these candidates is proud of their participation in the rebellion, and if the status of the ballot is challenged, they may be dismissed, even though they are not current officers.

The ruling that the Fourteenth Amendment applies to candidates and incumbents can confuse Republicans across the country.

Voters fighting to defend democracy would be wise to continue their legal challenges.
