The Democrat Maine Sec. of State who removed Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 Republican primary ballot – based on her interpretation of the 14th Amendment – is completely unqualified to make such determinations, Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin explains in a social media post.
On Thursday, Maine Sec. of State Shenna Bellows announced that she had removed former Pres. Trump from the ballot because she has decided that he violated both the U.S. Constitution and state law.
Levin, a bona fide expert on the U.S. Constitution and renowned lawyer, was quick to expose the fascistic nature of Bellows’ decision and how she made it despite her utter lack of legal, much less constitutional, knowledge:
“The fascist Secretary of State in Maine has no legal training whatsoever, has no working knowledge of the federal constitution, including the 14th amendment, but declares Trump ineligible for the ballot. Unconscionable.”
As evidence, Levin links to Bellows’ biography posted on her official government website.
Indeed, Bellows’ bio shows she has no formal education regarding the law – but, she does have a degree in politics. And, in addition to having served as a state senator for the Democrat Party, she has worked with the notoriously radical and extremist Sierra Club:
“She holds a B.A. in International Politics and Economics from Middlebury College.”
“Previously, she owned Bellows & Company, a non-profit consulting business, where she worked with organizations such as the Sierra Club’s Maine Chapter.”
The now-Secretary of State has also opposed requiring voters to provide identification and “championed automatic voter registration.”
Nonetheless, Bellows took it upon herself to act as Trump’s judge, jury and executioner, by declaring Trump guilty of “insurrection” – a crime for which he has been neither convicted, nor even charged.
In an interview with MSNBC, Bellows explained that her decision to remove Trump from the ballot was based on her interpretation of sections of state law and, especially, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:
“I, rather, laid out what the record demonstrates: that, in fact, the events of January 6, 2021, which were unprecedented and tragic, were an insurrection in Section 3, of the 14th Amendment.
“And, finally, in reviewing the facts presented, the evidence, the law, the history, we determined, under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment that Mr. Trump engaged in insurrection and, therefore, is disqualified.”
