Illinois Judge Disqualifies Trump from State Ballot

Arguing that former President Donald Trump engaged in “insurrection” according to the 14th Amendment, State Circuit Court Judge Tracie Porter in Cook County ruled that the GOP front-runner could not appear on the ballot in the state.

The decision is stayed, pending appeal.

Do zealous defenders of “democracy” think it is correct for judges, rather than voters, to determine who will be President?

Similar efforts are underway or resolved in the majority of states, 18 of which have dismissed or rejected similar efforts to bar Trump from the ballot, while the issue remains pending in another 15.
