AZ Secretary Of State Says Trump Can't Be Kept Off Ballot

September 2, 2023

Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes might be a Democrat, but he's not a miracle worker.

Recently, Fontes revealed that he was going to have to ignore his party's obvious wishes and allow Donald Trump's name to appear on the ballot in Arizona.

According to Breitbart, Fontes said that "Arizona law prohibits the U.S. Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment from being used to keep former President Donald Trump off the presidential ballot."

Fontes had previously seemed more willing to ban Trump from the state's election process but cooled on that idea after realizing how difficult that would be to do legally.

After previously suggesting that somebody should "start swinging" by attacking Trump, he admitted recently that his state won't allow him to keep the former president off the ballot no matter how badly he desires such an outcome.

"Now, the Arizona Supreme Court said that because there’s no statutory process in federal law to enforce Section 3 of the 14th amendment, you can’t enforce it," Fontes said.

"That’s what the Arizona Supreme Court said, so that’s the state of the law in Arizona. Now, do I agree with that? No, that’s stupid," he concluded. "What I’m saying is I’m going to follow the law. And the law in Arizona is what the law in Arizona is. Whether I like it or not, is irrelevant."
