  • Fun Fact:

    States decide how to apportion their electors. They could give them all to, say, whichever candidate won majority of counties!

    If Mastriano is successful, PA will reassign electors based on legislative authority.

        They are free to change the rules how they want to before the election occurs. At this point it's just more (not legally) treason.

          I agree with you that it isn't fair to change the rules after the fact, and is why I don't think electors should be reassigned. If there was indeed massive fraud or constitutional departures, then a special election should be held.

            Someone should tell that to Chris Hayes from MSNBC.

                Yes. If massive fraud occurred then I guess rerunning an election is the only option. I guess you could even do that with the presidency as long as the Speaker would be an acceptable interim leader. What a mess.

                    Hardly the only ones. Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) called on the Electoral College to deny Trump the presidency and here is a video of celebutards pleading with electors to give the election to Clinton, or anyone other than Trump in 2016.




                    Ironically with all of the asking for the electors to be "faithless" (IIRC, that's the technical term) and not vote for Trump, Hillary Clinton, lost five of her pledged electors while Trump only lost two. This became the largest numbers of electors to defect, surpassing the six who defected from Madison back in 1803.

                      Yeah, they thought that if they defected, the could convince gop electors to defect, throwing it into the house.

                          Need the details of your claim . . . At present all the states Trump has asked to finagle this sort fraudulent behavior to manipulate the election have refused.

                            Edited: Ok, I didn't realize the OP was CH's tweet verbatim. Yeah, he certainly shouldn't have said that and I wouldn't have supported states arbitrarily overruling the voters. I thought you were referencing the general argument for faithless electors.

                              It was their option of the states to do this. Not bad, but they do not change from election to election to force a dishonest result as Trump proposes..
