The truth always comes out.
It appears that Shenna Bellows who is responsible for getting Trump removed from the Maine ballot in 2024 is a very big fan of President Biden and the Democrats. Interesting isn’t it?
Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, a Democrat, made two visits to the White House in 2023, drawing attention to her political connections and affiliations. The first visit, in March, coincided with a Women’s History Month event, during which she had the opportunity to meet President Biden. Bellows expressed her excitement about the experience on social media, emphasizing the honor of joining the president and other female leaders.
Her second visit occurred on June 6, where she met with Justin Vail, a special assistant to President Biden. This trip, organized by Issue One Reform, focused on bipartisan political reform and unity to address issues in the political system. Bellows highlighted the importance of bipartisan collaboration on election-related matters, emphasizing shared concerns about protecting election workers and critical election infrastructure.
Shenna Bellows, who has been Maine’s Secretary of State since 2021, has a history of advocating for voting accessibility and expressing concerns about the Electoral College. In her op-ed for the Democracy Docket, she criticized the Electoral College as a “relic of white supremacy,” arguing that it hampers fair representation for voters.
Recently, Bellows made headlines by moving to disqualify former President Donald Trump from Maine’s 2024 Republican primary ballot. Citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, she justified her decision based on the prohibition of individuals who have “engaged in insurrection” from running for office without congressional approval. This decision, mirroring a similar one in Colorado, has sparked controversy and backlash from both Republicans and Democrats.
Despite criticism, Bellows remains firm in her stance, arguing that the events of January 6, 2021, constituted an insurrection, and Trump’s engagement in it justifies her decision under the 14th Amendment. The controversy surrounding her actions highlights the ongoing debate over the interpretation of constitutional provisions and their implications for electoral participation.
Yes! That was such a powerful part of our trip to DC. Democrats, Republicans and nonpartisan elections officials united on issues of protecting election workers and finding critical election infrastructure. https://t.co/rsCtHXyoDQ
