Ted Cruz risks primary disqualification in New Jersey resulting from charges of ballot access fraud. A primary ballot disqualification hearing is scheduled by the Secretary of State for Monday, April 11 at 9:00 a.m. inMercerville, New Jersey.
Washington D.C. Law Professor Victor Williams charges that Ted Cruz fraudulently certified his constitutional eligibility for office to gain ballot access. Williams demands that Cruz be disqualified from several late-primary ballots: “Cruz committed ballot access fraud in each state when he falsely swore that he was a ‘natural born’ American citizen.” Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada and held his resulting Canadian citizenship until May 2014. Cruz is a naturalized (not natural born) American citizen.
Williams’ fraud charges had quick effect in New Jersey. Rather than accepting Cruz’s ballot petition when filed last week, the Secretary of State (Kim Guadagno) scheduled the unusual Administrative Law hearing for April 11. The Canadian-born Cruz must prove that he did not falsely certify his eligibility for office.
Cruz’s ballot eligibility is also being challenged in California, Maryland, Montana,Nebraska, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington.
Late-Entrant GOP Candidate Asserts “Competitor Candidate Standing” to Disqualify Cruz
Victor Williams warns of further action if Cruz is not disqualified from New Jersey’sJune 7th primary. Williams has unique litigation strategy. Williams became a late-entrant GOP presidential candidate. Now his “competitor candidate” status provides the strongest “standing” to challenge Cruz.
Attacking from Cruz’s left flank, Williams announced his presidential campaign with a Huffington Post commentary: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/victor-williams/not-eligible-to-play-top-_b_9554784.html.
Williams is registered/declared as a “write-in” candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in multiple states. Such “write-in” candidates are considered “genuine opposition” regardless of actual chances or support. Example: Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
Williams’ website — VictorWilliamsforPresident.com — details the law professor/candidate’s litigation strategy. It also details Williams unique policy positions on providing student loan debt relief and ending corporate stock buybacks.
