Effort to Remove Trump from Wyoming Ballot Dismissed
Trump will stay on the ballot in Wyoming.
An Albany County judge dismissed the effort to remove Trump from the ballot in Wyoming citing Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Judge Misha Westby dismissed the case on Friday. The word of that dismissal came to me on Friday, thought Wyoming Secretary of State Chug Gray.
The effort to remove Trump was filed by retired lawyer Tim Newcomb, a Democrat from Laramie.
The complaint tried to use Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment in an attempt to bar both former President Donald Trump and Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)
“from appearing on Wyoming ballots unless Congress removes such disability by a vote of two-thirds of each House.” It argued that Trump failed to uphold the “Constitution’s transfer of presidential power under Article II. Section I,” therefore disqualifying him from the ballot while Lummis “disqualified herself from appearing on Wyoming’s ballot when she refused to count Pennsylvania’s electoral ballots to the electoral count required by Article II, Section 1.”
But neither Donald Trump nor Cynthia Lummis has ever been formally charged with "insurrection."
They have never been arrested for it.
Because the first two never happened neither of them have ever been found guilty of it in a court of law.
Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray told Fox News that Newcomb’s lawsuit was “repugnant.”
I am extremely pleased with Judge Westby’s decision to dismiss Mr. Newcomb’s outrageously wrong and repugnant lawsuit to remove Donald Trump and Cynthia Lummis from the ballot in Wyoming.
Gray promised to fight against the nationwide initiative to remove Trump from State ballots.
I have been working to make sure that Donald Trump will be able to be on the ballot, and I am happy our motion to dismiss this lawsuit was granted. I will continue to fight against this nationwide effort in order to protect the integrity of our elections and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves. said Gray.
Senator Lummis said she was “glad this frivolous lawsuit… was dismissed.”
Efforts to remove candidates from the ballot are a direct attack on the freedom of voters to choose their elected officials and undermines the integrity of our elections
The Colorado Supreme Court ruled in a 4-3 decision to remove Trump from the ballot, but the order has been stayed while challenges are hashed out in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Maine's Secretary of State Shenna Bellows has removed Trump from that state's ballots. Like in Colorado, her order will not take effect until the U.S. Supreme Court weighs in.
