In a recent statement, Attorney General Bird expressed strong opposition to the actions taken by Colorado’s Supreme Court regarding the presidential election. According to Bird, the court’s decision is a direct form of election interference, particularly concerning the candidacy of the leading Republican contender.
Bird emphasized the criticality of allowing American voters the freedom to choose their preferred presidential candidate. She highlighted the growing concern that such measures reflect a deep-seated fear among the radical left of facing the former President in the upcoming November elections.
“These maneuvers are an attempt to eliminate him from the electoral race and bog him down in legal disputes to maintain his candidacy,” Bird asserted. She stressed the importance of adhering to democratic principles, ensuring that eligible candidates remain on the ballot to uphold voters’ rights. Bird pointed out the unanimous support from Republican attorney generals across the nation, who have rallied in backing the former President in a significant legal brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Bird criticized the legal rationale employed by the opposition as fundamentally flawed. “The Fourteenth Amendment has been a cornerstone of our constitution for over a century and a half, yet this is the first time such a bizarre interpretation has been presented,” she remarked. Bird expressed hope that the Supreme Court would promptly address this issue, basing its decision on the actual laws and constitutional provisions.
In a concluding remark, Bird suggested that President Biden could demonstrate fairness by advocating for the former President’s inclusion on the ballot, thereby setting the stage for a direct electoral contest. However, she noted a seeming reluctance on the part of the current administration to facilitate such a scenario.
