Supreme Court lets ‘insurrectionist’ ban against New Mexico official stand


Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

The Supreme Court has turned away a convicted member of the Jan. 6 mob who was barred from public office in New Mexico under the Constitution’s “insurrection clause” seeking to reverse his disqualification. The justices on Monday denied Couy Griffin’s petition to consider his effort to overturn the rulings of courts in New Mexico that deemed him ineligible from holding office there ever again. Griffin, who was convicted in 2022 of misdemeanor offenses related to his role in the breach of Capitol grounds, was a member of the Otero County board of commissioners until courts ordered him removed later that year. The former Cowboys for Trump founder was an early and vocal advocate of discredited theories about election fraud.

They simply refused to take the case up.  They regularly do that.  It isn't a dispositive ruling on the accusation against the guy.

Hey, so long as they didn't find in his favor, I am good with that. The fact remains that he will never be able hold office in New Mexico again. In addition, the precedent has been set in the future convicted January 6, insurrectionists do not have a leg to stand on with the Supreme Court. Their only hope is that Trump is reelected and follows through with comments about pardons the for-Capital Insurrectionist's. However, I don't believe he will do it all the nonsense where he is calling them hostages is just ploy to try and regain the trust he destroyed when he let them swing in the wind after January 6. 2021.:yes:
