Ohio tea party leader urges Trump to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law to hold new vote

Cleveland Plain Dealer

COLUMBUS, Ohio—A prominent Ohio tea party leader has taken out a full-page ad in the Washington Times calling on President Donald Trump to temporarily suspend the Constitution and declare martial law to stage a “re-vote” of the 2020 presidential election.

The ad, placed by Tom Zawistowski of the We the People Convention, drew swift criticism from at least one top Ohio Republican.

In the ad, Zawistowski states that when Democrat Joe Biden is formally elected the next president, as is expected, Trump should order the U.S. military to oversee a new election for federal candidates using only paper ballots.

Zawistowski cited unfounded claims of voter fraud, many of which have been vocally pushed by Trump himself. Trump’s campaign has filed dozens of lawsuits in battleground states narrowly won by Biden, though those suits have mostly been thrown out or withdrawn.

1. I don't know just how stupid this asshole is, but judging by the "suspend the Constitution" thing,

he must be pretty damned stupid indeed.

The Constitution is not the President's to do with as he wishes. It spells out pretty clearly the President's powers and restrictions

6. Uhm do they not see the irony...?

...in representing a group of people who claim to have taken inspiration from early American revolutionaries resisting authority of the king... and they are calling on the president to usurp the constitution to overturn the will of the people...

12. Mail ballots are paper ballots

Which is why Trump and his allies (also know as the Russians) are finding it impossible to actually cheat like they did in 2016.
