Today is the BIG day…the electoral college will have its say in the 2016 election…..
How many have read the rantings of the lunatic Right and their constant bitching about the “attempts” to de-legitamizing the election of Donald Trump?
They whine about the protests….they condemn anyone that will not bow down and kiss the joint of our newly “elected” emperor…..
So in the spirit of cooperation I have read something about the possibility of some electors that may NOT sign on to the presidency of Trump…..
This is from the site “The Hill”……
Harvard University law professor Larry Lessig said Tuesday that 20 Republican Electoral College voters are considering flipping to vote against Donald Trump, more than half the number of anti-Trump votes needed to stall the president-elect from being sworn into office.
“Obviously, whether an elector ultimately votes his or her conscience will depend in part upon whether there are enough doing the same. We now believe there are more than half the number needed to change the result seriously considering making that vote,” Lessig told Politico.
Lessig has been offering free legal counsel to “faithless electors” who are considering casting a ballot for an alternative candidate as opposed to Trump, who earned 306 votes on Election Day, well above the necessary 270.
According to Politico’s report, 20 Republican electors have contacted Lessig’s group about voting against Trump.
Electors will cast their ballots on Dec. 19.
If anti-Trump electors manage to whip up enough votes against him, the decision would then go to the GOP-controlled House.
Here’s the problem…even if these 30 electors decide to go against the election and vote for someone other than Trump…he will still have enough votes to be the president…..if it does somehow go to the Congress then Trump will still be the winner….why? GOP are cowards and will NOT vote against their party.
So please stop your constant whining…..Trump was elected and he will be president…..move on to something that deserves attention. That is assuming that you can actually think beyond what those idiots in the fringe media tells you.
