Maine Secretary Of State May Be Impeached For Kicking Trump Off Ballot
Don’t mess with former President Donald Trump! There will be consequences.
Just ask Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows.
Bellows decided to announce that Donald Trump would not be allowed on her state’s presidential primary election ballot.
Now, articles of impeachment may be on the cards for Bellows.
State Rep. John Andrews is going after Bellows for her decision to remove Trump from the ballot, calling it “raw partisanship.”
“I wish to file a Joint Order, or whichever is the proper parliamentary mechanism under Mason’s Rules, to impeach Secretary of State Shenna Bellows. I wish to impeach Secretary Bellows on the grounds that she is barring an American citizen and 45th President of the United States, who is convicted of no crime or impeachment, their right to appear on a Maine Republican Primary ballot,” said Andrews in a recent statement.
Andrews didn’t stop there in terms of making his case for Donald Trump.
“Donald J. Trump has met all qualifications for the March 2024 Republican Presidential Primary. He should be allowed on the ballot. This is raw partisanship and has no place in the offices of our state’s Constitutional Officers,” Andrews continued.
Andrews isn’t the only Maine Republican working to put Bellows in her place over this ballot decision.
Maine Republican Chairman, Joel Stetkis spoke with WGAN confirming what is next.
“This political activism by Shenna Bellows, it’s not going to stand. At the party, since yesterday, we’ve been working on an appeal to the Maine Superior Court and we’re also reserving the right to return to a caucus system where Shenna Bellows will have absolutely no say in who Mainers choose for the Republican nominee for president,” said Stetkis.
No further details have been released regarding the impeachment of Bellows at this time.
