Secretary LaRose: Bar Trump from the Ballot and Investigate Jordan for Insurrection
On January 6 2021, a violent mob attacked Congress in an effort to prevent Joe Biden from being certified as the next President. Outgoing President Trump played a primary role in inciting the rioters. But there were many other elected officials who participated as well. In Ohio, we are particularly concerned about the role played by Congressman Jim Jordan (OH-4).
In May, Representative Jordan prevailed in Ohio’s 4th District Primary to determine the Republican nominee for Congress. But his actions in the days leading up to and during the January 6, 2021 insurrection are sufficient to raise the question whether he must be deemed ineligible to run for re-election in November.
- Jim Jordan promoted Stop the Steal and election lies and overhyped the significance of Jan. 6. Jordan made several Fox News and Fox Business appearances between Jan. 3 and Jan. 6 in which he claimed the 2020 election was “stolen” and “unconstitutional.”
- He also made similar claims on a Jan. 5 Newsmax appearance.
In these circumstances, Secretary of State Frank LaRose has a duty to investigate whether Jim Jordan violated his sworn oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
Sign if you agree: Secretary of State Frank LaRose is obligated to:
- Hold Donald Trump ineligible to run for office again in Ohio based on his insurrectionist activities leading up to and on January 6, 2021.
- Investigate whether Jim Jordan's actions leading up to and on January 6th are properly characterized as insurrectionist or as having given aid and comfort to America's enemies such that he must also be blocked from the ballot in Ohio.
