St. Thomas prof: U.S. Constitution bars Trump from 2024 ballot

A constitutional law professor at the University of St. Thomas has co-authored an article igniting a national debate about whether the U.S. Constitution bars President Donald Trump from being on the ballot next year.

Michael Stokes Paulsen, along with William Baude of the University of Chicago, wrote a 126-page draft article that has gone gangbusters online even though it won't be printed in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review until next year.

Baude and Paulsen say the Constitution's Section Three, Article 14, a Civil War-era provision, forbids former office holders who participate in insurrection or rebellion from holding office again.
