Sign the petition: Investigate electeds who may be constitutionally disqualified from holding office

The 2022 midterms saw the election of individuals to the U.S. Congress and to state legislatures who may be constitutionally disqualified from holding office. Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is clear. No elected official who previously swore an oath to the Constitution may serve if they "engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the U.S. government.

To that end, electeds need to be investigated to determine if they meet the constitutional qualifications for office or are disqualified for engaging in insurrection. If any of them are found to have engaged in insurrection, then they are disqualified from office under the 14th Amendment, and Congress or their state legislatures must prevent them from being seated.

Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar intimidated officials responsible for processing the election results, embraced violent alt-right groups and advanced extra-legal efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

North Carolina State Rep. Donnie Loftis, who confirmed that he was at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, wrote in now-deleted social media posts that he “was at the entrance when they breached the door.” He also appeared to have been close to individuals who used violence to gain access to the Capitol.

Those are just two of the seven who should be investigated.

Insurrectionists have no business serving as elected officials, and should be barred. That’s not a matter of opinion or political preference, it’s what the Constitution says. This is a fight we have to have if we want a strong and secure democracy.

Sign the petition: January 6 insurrectionists must be investigated and banned from running for office.
