Jim meet Madison. Nevada Secretary of State candidate Jim Marchant must be held accountable for acts
According to the Washington Post, during the same week as the one year anniversary of January 6 insurrection against the United States, North Carolina voters brought a "Challenge to the constitutional qualifications of Rep. Madison Cawthorn."
Their push to have the freshman Congressman's reelection bid halted was found in the text comprising section 3 of the United States Constitution's 14th Amendment.
The entire passage reads as follows:
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.
While a New York Times editorial weighed in on Cawthorn's actual case, and The National Review preemptively pushed back on its use to thwart a future run by former President Donald Trump, neither publication outright dismissed the legality of utilizing Section 3 during the upcoming election cycle to end the political fortunes of those associated with the events of surrounding the Trump team's attempt at stealing the election from the nation's voters.
In Nevada, the name Jim Marchant makes the actions of Madison Cawthorn pale by comparison. The multi time election loser, who is now running for Secretary of State must forever be forbidden from assuming a state or federal office again. His actions surrounding the propagation of the "Big Lie" are well known, but now that his role in the installation of fake Presidential electors from the Silver State has come to light, an act which the #WeMatter State Governor Steve Sisolak labeled, "a crime," the time has come to strip Marchant of his right to hold any electoral position.
