Here's a nice list. I have to imagine the list has grown since the defeated ex-President exhorted his followers to attack the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Thanks for that, Bus! Now, here is a list of his supporters who were relected in the recent mid-terms?


And is there any possible hope for Article 14, Section 3 being enforced against them and others?

"On Friday, November 25, 2022, just over a week ago, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced, “On the very first day of the new Republican-led Congress, we will “read every single word of the Constitution aloud from the floor of the House—something that hasn’t been done in years.” "

How about getting down to taking care of the peoples business??

I saw a post in which someone responded with "Will that include the 14th Amendment, specifically Section 3?"

"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."

I don't think that McCarthy and the other MAGA't Congress Critters are going to invoke the 14th against themselves, do you??


.......Vox senior correspondent Ian Millhiser tweeted: “Huh, so Democrats managed to pick up a Senate seat in a cycle where they should have been crushed. Consider the possibility that Joe Biden is very good at his job.”

Yes you did, sorry for misunderstanding. The quoted report mentioned McCarthy and his elk quoting the Constitution, and then you mentioned my post about the 14th, and I didn't get the connection?
Wow. Stunned you got that from this -

"I saw a post in which someone responded with 'Will that include the 14th Amendment, specifically Section 3?'"

Do you assume every time someone shares something they see/read it becomes their viewpoint?

??????? Dunno where you are coming from or going with this? You mentioned my post about the 14th, so not understanding the connection to the post you attached it to.

Geez, Billy. I shared that I saw a post in which someone else "asked" if this reading would include that section.

I said nothing about whether I thought they would, or not.

Your imagination is wandering around, unescorted.

Something I've wondered about this "independent state legislature" theory. It isn't as absolute as some would say. The phrase is (emphasis mine) - "the Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators."

So, Congressional action would override it. Not that the next House would be interested. Unless there are a handful of level-headed Republicans, who still care about Democracy, to side with the Dems in crafting such a law.
