Misquoting Section 3 of the 14th Amendment

Jason Mazzone

Evidently, the House impeachment effort is happening too quickly for its organizers to check what section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment actually says. The second sentence of the proposed impeachment article reads:

Further, section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution prohibits any person who has ‘‘engaged in insurrection or rebellion against’’ the United States from ‘‘hold[ing] any office . . . under the United States’’.

A shaky start.
