Missouri Attorney General files lawsuit against New York

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has filed a lawsuit against New York State, alleging it violated Missourians’ First Amendment rights.

Bailey alleges that New York undermined former President Donald Trump’s ability to campaign for president with Trump’s prosecution, gag orders and sentencing.

“Right now, Missouri has a huge problem with New York. Instead of allowing presidential candidates to campaign on their own merits, radical progressives in New York are attempting to rig the 2024 election by launching a direct attack on our democratic process,” Attorney General Bailey said in a press release. “I will not stand idly by while Soros-backed prosecutors hold Missouri voters hostage in this presidential election. I am filing a lawsuit to ensure that all Missourians can exercise their right to hear and vote for their preferred presidential candidate.”

Bailey’s lawsuit claims New York’s actions denigrate Missourians’ ability to hear and cast a fully informed vote for the president just months before the election.

Asks the Supreme Court to halt any further action in the New York case until after the presidential election.
