This week’s huge in-kind contribution to Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is from Maine secretary of state Shenna Bellows, who announced Thursday that she will unilaterally delete Mr. Trump’s name from the presidential primary ballot. Maine is now the second state, after Colorado, to declare him a Jan. 6 insurrectionist under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. Paging the U.S. Supreme Court, alas.

Ms. Bellows’s administrative ruling largely tracks the opinion last week from the Colorado Supreme Court, except she blows through all the knotty legal questions in a breezy 34 pages. Section 3 was passed after the Civil War to stop Confederates who “engaged in insurrection” from retaking government posts. Applying it to Mr. Trump and the riot on Jan. 6, 2021, involves a series of dubious legal propositions.
