In an effort to rig the 2020 presidential election, Washington State has joined New Jersey to get President Trump removed from their 2020 presidential ballot.
Both states have passed a law that would require every participant in the election to show their tax returns since President Trump’s has refused to show his.
It is highly unlikely President Trump would win in New Jersey or Washington either way, but leftists are always busy at work with these sorts of wasteful efforts.
The Hill reported:
Washington’s state Senate passed a bill this week that would drop President Trump from the state’s 2020 presidential ballot until he releases his tax returns.
The bill, which advanced Tuesday to the state’s House of Representatives, according to CBS News, would require any candidate on the ballot for president in the state to release five years of tax returns before appearing in a general or primary election.
Senators voted by a 28-21 margin to approve the bill, according to CBS. The state’s attorney general and solicitor told lawmakers in a letter this week that the proposal likely was constitutional, but analysts expect the law if passed to be challenged in federal court.
“The disclosure requirement you propose is likely Constitutional,” the two wrote to lawmakers, according to CBS, adding that the measure “would definitely be challenged in court.”
Democrats who supported the bill said the provision was necessary to force a return to norms surrounding the release of presidential candidates’ tax returns.
“Although releasing tax returns has been the norm for about the last 40 years in presidential elections, unfortunately we’ve seen that norm broken,” said Sen. Patty Kuderer (D), who sponsored the bill, according to CBS.
Republicans, however, argued that the state was getting into questionable territory by attempting to impose rules on a federal election.
“We’re on really risky ground when we’re trying to place conditions on a federal election,” said Sen. Hans Zeiger (R), according to CBS.
It is curious, being that the Democrats are in favor for Democracy in all aspects of our government and society, why are they always looking to rig elections with schemes like this?
They are not even concerned about voter fraud and ways to ensure it doesn’t happen. Even their own primary process is rigged with super delegates.
Does this sound like Democracy to you?
