New law would bar Trump from appearing on California ballot if he doesn’t disclose tax returns


President Donald Trump would be barred from appearing on California’s primary ballot next year if he declines to disclose his tax returns under a measure signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom that could prompt other Democratic-led states to follow suit.

In a statement, Newsom, said that given its size, California has “a special responsibility to require this information of presidential and gubernatorial candidates.”
“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence,”.

An interesting law. I wonder if it will be deemed constitutional.

I agree that presidential candidates should meet minimal standards but unfortunately large numbers of the American public don't seem to agree or at least their minimal standards are also bad ones.

And it will be found to be unconstitutional.

Why, specifically, Gopped ?
It is the States that control the elections rules.

The very simple people will say the Constitution just says to run for POTUS one must only be 35 years old, and a born American, but forget that when that was written each Colony, (then State), has very restrictive laws about who could even vote never mind run for office. Prime among those rules was being financially whole. Why is proving you are not owned by a criminal gang of lobbyists or foreign power because they are underwater not both in States interest and their right by law and tradition ?

So if everyone must , by law, do what has been the tradition not just for decades, but from days of the Founding Fathers, to be at the top of ballot in California, what , besides that you don't like the law, makes it "unconstitutional" , Gopped ... and everyone else who says it just has to be un-Constitutional, too ?

Please tell us why you think that ?
Be specific.

This law refers to the Primary ballot and not to the actual election. There is a difference.

My initial thoughts are that this law would be valid if it referred tot the actual election but it's on much shakier grounds with respect to the primaries.

Why ?

It is the State primary which first has no constitutional basis and is a questionable State cooperation with the Parties which are actually, what, supposedly non profit corporations ?

No chance that American laws will ever aim to attain better candidates for political office?

There is that.
It is a function of the non-constitutional inordinate power of the the political parties.

No one dare question their authority as the gatekeepers to political office, even if doing do would expose how the Founding Fathers feared the threat of political parties undermining the integrity their experimental form of representative democracy.
