Former New Mexico Official Banned After Jan. 6 Riot Rejected by Supreme Court

via NewsNation

The Supreme Court declined to take up an appeal by a former New Mexico official barred from office for his involvement in the January 6th Capitol riot.

Couy Griffin, a former county commissioner, was the only elected official disqualified under the 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause for over a century.

The Court said states can disqualify those attempting state office for insurrection, unlike its recent ruling that states cannot prevent federal candidates from appearing on ballots without being charged.

“We conclude that states may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office,” the justices wrote.

The Court will hear two cases that could dramatically curb federal agencies’ ability to issue rules with the effect of legislation, potentially ending the deference to agencies established in 1984. (Trending: Boeing Whistleblower Found Dead, Left Behind Chilling Message)

“At long last, on Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear two cases that may signal the beginning of the end to that revolution,” former US assistant attorney general Thomas M. Boyd wrote.

Boyd noted that “All legislative power herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States”—not federal agencies, according to Article I of the Constitution.

This could substantially alter executive power by reining in agencies’ interpretation of ambiguous laws beyond Congress’s intended meaning in statutes.
