New Jersey Democrats are reviving a controversial effort to force President Donald Trump to release his tax returns or be denied a spot on the state’s 2020 ballot.

The state Senate on Thursday approved a bill — which the Legislature passed once before, in 2017, but which then-Gov. Chris Christie blocked by issuing a scathing veto — that would prohibit candidates for president and vice president from appearing on the ballot unless they make their tax returns public.

The article goes on to state the following:

Similar legislation has been introduced in at least 30 states but never enacted, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, meaning New Jersey would be the first to impose such a disclosure requirement if its measure is also approved by the Assembly and signed by Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat.

    That’s BS & they can not keep Trump off the 2020 ballots, how about they can’t vote unless they publish their tax returns.

    I’m betting that a court challenge based on Article II of the Constitution will nullify this action. It would be suspended for the time needed to work through the judicial process

    They must be afraid. I would think this is unconstitutional.
