Statement from the Missouri and Kansas Cyber Alliance Network (MOKANCAN) Regarding Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft's Threats to Kick Joe Biden off the Ballots in Missouri
The Missouri and Kansas Cyber Alliance Network (MOKANCAN) expresses deep concern over the recent statements made by Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft regarding the potential disqualification of President Joe Biden from appearing on the ballot.
While the role of state officials in overseeing elections is crucial to the integrity of the electoral process, threatening to remove a sitting President from a ballot based on perceived retaliatory actions undermines the democratic principles upon which our nation was founded.
Secretary Ashcroft's statements reflect a dangerous precedent, suggesting that election decisions can be influenced by partisan considerations rather than adherence to the rule of law. Such actions risk eroding public trust in our electoral system and could lead to a divisive and chaotic electoral environment.
MOKANCAN urges Secretary Ashcroft and other state officials to prioritize the impartial administration of elections and refrain from making decisions that could undermine the democratic process. We call upon all stakeholders to uphold the principles of fairness, transparency, and respect for the rule of law in our electoral system.
