    California passes bill to keep Trump off ballot

    California Senate passes bill that would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases tax returns

    BY RACHEL FRAZIN - 05/02/19 07:05 PM EDT 5,8










    The California state Senate on Thursday approved a bill to require candidates appearing on the presidential primary ballot — including President Trump — to release five years' worth of income tax returns.
    The measure was approved in a 27-10 vote, according to The Associated Press. California, for the first time, will be one of the first states to hold its presidential primary in the 2020 cycle.



    The bill is a response to Trump's insistence that he will not release his tax returns as presidential candidates traditionally have done, claiming he is under audit. If the bill becomes law and Trump does not release his returns, he may not appear on the California primary ballot.
    "We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D) who co-authored the bill, according to the AP.
    All 10 Republicans in the state Senate voted against the bill's passage.
    “I get that playing the resistance card may be good politics for the majority party, but I would submit that it’s bad policy for Californians,” Sen. Brian Jones (R) told the wire service.

    The state's legislature passed a similar bill in 2017, but then-Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who did not release his own tax returns, vetoed the bill. A spokesman for Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) told the AP that if the bill was sent to Newsom's desk, "it would be evaluated on its own merits.”

    Other presidential candidates would also be subject to the bill, but several 2020 Democrats have already released their tax returns.
    Trump is facing one primary challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R).
    Similar bills are making their way through the Washington and New Jersey state legislatures.

    Democrat tears on the night of November 8-9, 2016 are the most beautiful I have heard.

    A federal court will rule such a law unconstitutional and Kommiefornia will ignore the ruling and keep him off of the ballot anyway.

    That won't stop Trump supporters from starting a write-in campaign. Trump will not will win Kommiefornia anyway. But this will be a huge media win for Trump and will show the rest of the country just how detached from reality and the law Kommiefornia has become.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Such desperation has never before been seen in American politics. Gawd I hope Trump get elected, so the entire country see's what crap the prog's really are. And watching prog's reactions to another Trump victory will be well worth all the pain they've caused for the past 4 years.

    Californias Newsom signs bill to force Trump tax returns

    Trump campaign official Tim Murtaugh said in an email that the law was unconstitutional....The Constitution is clear on the qualifications for someone to serve as president and states can not add additional requirements on their own....The bill also violates the First Amendment right of association since California can't tell political parties which candidates their members can or cannot vote for in a primary election.
