After Questionable Hearing Law Professor Files Emergency Petition to Disqualify Canadian Cruz in New Jersey


We have previously written about Victor Williams, Law Professor and Write-In Candidate, efforts to block Ted Cruz’s ballot access in New Jersey and other late primary states.

Here is the newest report :

BETHESDA, Md., April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Washington D.C. Law Professor Victor Williams has filed an Emergency Petition with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie demanding that the Canadian-born Ted Cruz be disqualified from the ballot.  (Full details at his website –

Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada and held his resulting Canadian citizenship until May 2014.  Scholars across the nation agree that Edward Rafael Cruz is not a “natural born [American] Citizen” as required by Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

Victor Williams charges that Ted Cruz falsely certified his constitutional eligibility for office to gain ballot access in states across the nation.  Williams demands that Cruz be disqualified from New Jersey’s June 7 ballot and from several other late-primary ballots. (California, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington).

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno Rubber-Stamps a Specially Selected Hearing Judge’s Pro-Cruz Decision

Citing Ethical Concerns, Williams Protests the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law’s Irregular Decision to  “Recall” and Specially Appoint “Judge” Masin in Cruz Eligibility Contest. 

On April 11, at an Administrative Law Office hearing just outside Trenton, Williams personally argued that the Canadian-born Cruz was not a “natural born Citizen” and thus not eligible for the presidency.

It was no surprise to Williams when hearing judge Jeff Masin ruled in Cruz’s favor finding that it was sufficient that Cruz’s mother was an American citizen.

The retired Jeff Masin had been specially chosen (“recalled”) by Chris Christie’s Office of Administrative Law to preside over the hearing.  Masin’s long-held views on the issue were well known to all.

It was thus predictable that the specially chosen hearing judge would rule in Ted Cruz’s favor.

It was also not surprising that the hearing judge was able to produce a detailed, 27-page ruling in a one-day period. Clearly, Mr. Masin had come prepared.

While Mr. Masin’s decision was no surprise, it was shocking that Chris Christie’s Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno rubber-stamped the pro-Cruz decision without genuine independent review of the decision and a fulsome investigation of the “special” appointment of Mr. Mason.

Williams demands that Christie and the New Jersey Attorney General conduct a review of the decision and launch an investigation of the appointment shenanigans.

Williams as Late-Entrant GOP Candidate Asserts “Competitor Candidate Standing” to Disqualify Cruz; The “Republican Lawrence Lessig” Puts His Law School Theory to Practice

Williams states that he is “giving Governor Chris Christie an opportunity to clean up the mess that his Lt. Governor and Office of Administrative Law have made.”

If Chris Christie fails to take immediate action to reverse the erroneous decision, Williams’s Emergency Petition notes that the next step in the election law is the Election Law’s statutory route to the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court.

Williams is registered/declared as a “write-in” candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in multiple states, and thus he has unique “competitor candidate” legal standing to take action. His litigation strategy is as disruptive as election year 2016.

    Not only has Victor Williams done some wonderful things here to STOP cruz in his tracks but an article recently by the The North American Law Center released a doc: stating that Cruz is NOW a man without a Country (which I have been saying for months and months in my blogs and got poo hooed about my comments) and that cruz cannot be a “natural born citizen” of TWO Country’s simultaneously (born at the same time in two different country’s …you say what???).

    Apparently on a special form in each State for President there is a little box that has to be answered: “are you a natural born citizen of the U.S.? Cruz being a formerly natural born citizen of Canada cannot answer “yes” to this question…but apparently he did do just that…he answered YES. Wow and he’s a lawyer/Senator??? Good luck with that and to me that means he has stolen/deceived many many votes and delegates from “we the people”!!! How in all that is holy can this man get away with such disgusting and in your face lie’s, deception and theft?

    I say: “YOU GO VICTOR WILLIAMS”, sir, you are a gentleman, a scholar, and an upright write in candidate, who ALSO endorses Mr. Trump. WTG.
