Voters in North Carolina try to have Madison Cawthorn disqualified from office for participating in Trump’s coup

Voters in North Carolina are trying to get Rep. Madison Cawthorn disqualified from the poll for participating in the 1/6 insurgency.

ABC News reported that voters are using an 1868 amendment to the Constitution to argue that Cawthorn should be disqualified:

The 1868 Amendment says that no one can serve in Congress “who, having previously been sworn in, as a member of Congress.” . . to support the Constitution of the United States, will have engaged in an insurrection or a rebellion against it.


North Carolina voters use Representative Raskin’s idea to potentially disqualify Cawthorn

Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) pitched the idea that Congress could use the same amendment to bar Donald Trump from being president again.

Voters in North Carolina are putting Raskin’s idea to the test.

It is suspected that this challenge will be more effective once Committee 1/6 has completed its work and made its report to the public.

If it turns out that House Republicans were involved in the insurgency and efforts to overthrow the government, the House Republicans’ candidacies could be challenged across the country.

Representative Madison Cawthorn was involved in the insurgency and in the months that followed she encouraged more violence against the US government.

If Republicans start to be disqualified from the ballot, it will represent real punishment and real consequences for their actions.
