California Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis is also trying to remove former President Donald Trump from California’s presidential primary ballot. But while attempting to make the demand, she made a mistake that is all too glaring.

In a letter to Secretary of State Shirley Weber, Kounalakis wrote, “I urge you to explore every legal option to remove former President Donald Trump from California’s 2024 presidential primary ballot.”

She acknowledged that her move was inspired by the Tuesday ruling from the Colorado Supreme Court that renders Trump ineligible to contest in the state as a presidential candidate.

“This decision is about honoring the rule of law in our country and protecting the fundamental pillars of our democracy,” Kounalakis’ letter stated, adding, “California must stand on the right side of history. California is obligated to determine if Trump is ineligible for the California ballot for the same reasons described in [the Colorado case.”

The Democrat then made an erroneous assertion, stating, “The Colorado decision can be the basis for a similar decision here in our state. The constitution is clear, you must be 40 years old and not be an insurrectionist.”

This statement could not be more wrong as the Constitution does not mention anything like “insurrection” in its three qualifications for presidency. Kounalakis also got it wrong with the age requirement.

The three qualifications only require a presidential candidate to be a natural-born citizen who has lived in the United States for at least 14 years and is at least 35.

Kounalakis later edited the letter to correct the factual error. She, however, left the “insurrectionist” bit.

On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court voted to remove Trump from the state’s primary ballot.

While they cited insurrection, many have argued that the judges’ claim of insurrection can only be valid if Trump had been charged and convicted under the law.

This argument has been backed by Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Brian Boatright, one of the judges that voted against the ruling. Per CNN, Boatright stated that “In the absence of an insurrection-related conviction, I would hold that a request to disqualify a candidate under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment is not a proper cause of action under Colorado’s election code.”
