CALIFORNIA CITY, Calif. - Dec. 30, 2023 - PRLog -- California Secretary of State Shirley Weber has stirred controversy by announcing her decision to include former President Trump on the state's primary ballot, despite facing intense pressure to exclude the Republican frontrunner. In a surprising twist, Weber, a Democrat, defended her move, emphasizing her commitment to upholding the rule of law and the democratic process.

Expressing her personal reservations about Trump's actions as "abhorrent and disturbing," Weber insisted that her duty as a guardian of democracy compelled her to follow legal protocols. In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, she stated, "If I believe in this democracy, I have to continue to abide by the rule of law, and for me not to do that, then I am no better than Trump. And I must be better than Trump."

Weber revealed that her office had diligently explored legal avenues for removing Trump from the ballot, collaborating with state and local officials for months. Despite the efforts, it was concluded that the state constitution did not grant her the authority to take such action.

This decision came in response to a letter from Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis urging Weber to explore every legal option to exclude Trump from the primary ballot. In her response, Weber emphasized prioritizing the "sanctity" of democratic elections over "partisan politics."

Governor Gavin Newsom supported Weber's stance, asserting that in California, candidates are defeated at the polls, dismissing other actions as mere political distractions.

Weber defended her position against Kounalakis's criticism, stating that her team had exhausted all available means to assess the legality of removing Trump from the ballot.

Meanwhile, Trump is expected to appeal recent ballot decisions in Colorado and Maine. Maine Democratic Secretary of State Shenna Bellows removed Trump from the state's ballot, citing the Constitution's insurrection clause. In Colorado, the Supreme Court ruled Trump ineligible, linking his actions to the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack. The U.S. Supreme Court is anticipated to have the final say on the matter. The unfolding legal drama highlights the intersection of law, politics, and the ongoing debate over Trump's role in American democracy.
