Donald Trump hoards stolen top secret government documents. He steals the hearts of brutal dictators and unreconstructed racists. He reliably saps our will to live. Any one of those things should be enough to disqualify him from high office, but it’s his demonstrated penchant for stealing—or incompetently trying to steal—elections that, as some observers note, literally strips him of eligibility to run for president.
And yet he’s running. The fact that he’s almost certainly doing so in a Hail Mary bid to stay out of prison, scam his followers out of more money, and force the government to continue paying for his fortnightly Alfredo sauce sponge baths is beside the point. He’s running regardless. But at last, someone is attempting to do something about it.
Noting that Trump is a literal insurrectionist who schemed to overturn a free and fair federal election, one Palm Beach County attorney has filed suit in the Southern District of Florida to disqualify him under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
And he’s leaning on a lot of scholarly backing.
