Official who removed Trump from Maine ballot traveled to White House many times: Report

 January 1, 2024

Former President Donald Trump was taken off the ballot in Maine last week, and the secretary of state who unilaterally made the decision has quite the activist past.

According to the New York Post, Secretary of State Shenna Bellows is not only a staunch, card-carrying Democrat, but she also once called the Electoral College a "relic of white supremacy."

That statement alone should clarify where she stands ideologically, especially her presumed position on Trump and his policies.

Bellows is a huge fan of President Joe Biden -- so much so that she's logged multiple visits to the White House, and several pictures of the two have emerged on social media since she decided to remove Trump from the ballot.

Hilariously, she claimed that her personal political views had nothing to do with the decision.

By the way, as a non-lawyer, she decided that the U.S. Constitution's language of the 14th Amendment applies to Trump, even though he has not been convicted of being an "insurrectionist" or anything of the sort.

The Post noted:

Secretary of State Shenna Bellows visited the White House in March and again in June, visitor logs show.

On March 22, she attended a Women’s History Month event and took a photo with a smiling Biden, putting his left hand and on her shoulder and clutching one of her hands with his right.

She was especially happy about that event, writing later on her Instagram account, "Birthday jaunt to DC for a Women’s History Month event at the White House yesterday and walking around today," adding that it was an "honor" to meet Biden.

As recently as June, Bellows traveled to the White House to meet with one of Biden's assistants.

Bellows is also the type of Democrat who claimed that "Democracy is under attack" following the 2020 election, and said that was what helped her decide to enter the political arena. She made especially egregious comments about the Electoral College.

The Post noted:

She also took a shot at the Electoral College that helped get Trump elected in 2016, claiming “voting rights for our neighbors matter as much as our own, especially when the relic of white supremacy that is the Electoral College remains in place.”

In other words, she's not fooling anyone. She knows exactly what she did and now she gets to be celebrated as a hero on the liberal media circuit.

Many believe that her decision was a waste of time, given that the U.S. Supreme Court will likely not allow ballot removal decisions to stand. Only time will tell.
