Congress shall have the power to bar from genuine government office (such as Cabinet and Subcabinet, Representative/Senator, the executives and legislators of inferior governments, and Judge), elected or appointed, with an Act of Congress; such act must pass both chambers with a super-majority vote, be for genuine misconduct (including, but not limited to, the commission of insurrection or treason), state how acts committed by the person constitute genuine misconduct, and include evidence that shows on the standard of clear and convincing the commission of said misconduct. Persons barred under this procedure may not stand in election, be nominated for, or otherwise enter any postitions of which they are barred from. Bars under this procedure may be repealed by an act of congress passing with a simplemajority. No entity except the State or Inferior Government Executive Branch, which must act in line with employment law and other appropriate statute, may bar any named person from employment in a recognised department except for where positions as a department head or deputy department head constitute government office and such person is barred from government office in line with this section.
