Republican PAC seeks to block Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters from ballots

A super PAC called “Committee to Defeat The President” have hit out at Vice President Kamala Harris and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and accused them of being accessories to “an insurrection against the United States of America” during violent BLM and Antifa riots following the death of George Floyd.

The PAC, whose website address is stopjoe.com (previously stophillary.com), are attempting to have both Harris’s and Waters’ names removed from any ballots.

Despite the name of their website, their attention has largely turned to Harris and other progressives as recent polls have shown that most Democrats don’t want Biden, 79, to seek re-election.

“In light of the violent riots and looting caused by Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters, Vice President Kamala Harris was and is engaged in an insurrection against the United States of America based on her involvement and support of the BLM movement by praising, supporting, and encouraging BLM protestors,  supporting a BLM bail fund, and participating in BLM protests/marches,” the committee’s President Chairman Ted Harvey wrote in a letter, which he sent to the secretary of state in each state.

Harvey alleged Harris’ behaviour makes her “constitutionally ineligible under the Fourteenth Amendment to run for Federal office, and you should bar her from the 2024 Vice Presidential ballot.”

The group also made the same complaint against Waters. “It’s about time that Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters were held accountable for the Black Lives Matter riots that brought crime and chaos to America. Democrats who explicitly incite insurgency should not be allowed to run for federal office,” Harvey concluded.

Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs hit out at these accusations and expressed his strong disagreement that January 6th should be compared to Black Lives Matter.

“They are comparing actual rioting at the nation’s Capitol building by President Trump’s supporters to promote the lie that the 2020 election was stolen and that led to the death of a Capitol police officer with a legitimate political protest,” Jacobs said. “At best, this is a distraction. At worst, you’re part of a dangerous conspiracy to upend the democratically-elected government of the United States.”
