image for Jim Jordan Should Be Disqualified From Ballot Over Jan. 6: Protestors

Protestors in Ohio rallied outside of GOP Representative Jim Jordan's local office, urging the secretary of state to remove him from the ballot and prevent him from seeking another term in Congress.

The Ohio Republican spoke with the former president on the phone multiple times on January 6, 2021—when pro-Trump rioters attacked the U.S. Capitol.

He also forwarded a controversial text message before that day, which laid out a strategy to overturn President Joe Biden's Electoral College victory.

Hometown Stations (WLIO) in Lima, Ohio, reported on Saturday that Democratic demonstrators gathered outside Jordan's office and demanded he be removed from the ballot over his actions related to January 6.

They argued that Ohio's Secretary of State Frank LaRose, a Republican, can remove the GOP congressman from the ballot—citing the 14th Amendment, Section 3.

"Frank LaRose can disqualify him from being on the ballot," Taft Mangas, an organizer of the anti-Jordan rally, told the local news channel.

Some also held posters laying out the 14th Amendment and their argument that Jordan should be blocked from running for office again. »
