The Democratic Party is trying every dirty trick they have to rig the 2020 presidential election and steal it from President Donald Trump.
One of the ways that could do this is by having electors not vote for the person who wins the election in their state but rather vote for their candidate of choice.
While electors are not bound by the Constitution to vote for the person who wins their state this would cause a major shaking of the foundation of the entire electoral system.
Now a case has been taken by The Supreme Court of The United States that challenges the idea that states could force electors to vote for their state’s popular vote winner,” the Daily Caller reported.
“About half the states have laws requiring electors to cast their ballots for the candidate who won the popular vote in their state. The plaintiffs in Friday’s case are three Washington State electors — Peter Chiafalo, Levi Guerra and Esther John — who cast their votes in 2016 for Colin Powell instead of Hillary Clinton. State law imposes a fine of up to $1,000 on electors who break with the results of the popular vote. The justices also granted a similar dispute with Colorado, which they consolidated with the Washington case,” the Caller said.
“Unelected and unaccountable presidential electors should not be allowed to decide the presidential election without regard to voters’ choices and state law,” Jena Griswold, Colorado Secretary of State, said.
Colorado’s lawsuit against the “faithless electors” was defeated in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. It said that the state only had the authority to choose electors, not how they vote.
But the Washington State Supreme Court disagreed with the 10th Circuit and now it will be decided by the Supreme Court, right before the 2020 election.
“We are glad the Supreme Court has recognized the paramount importance of clearly determining the rules of the road for presidential electors for the upcoming election and all future elections,” Lawrence Lessig, an attorney for the electors said.
The issue at hand is that the presidency is not decided by the popular vote, but rather by electors on a state by state basis.
It has been a major bone of contention for Democrats after Presidents George W. Bush and Trump won the presidency but did not win the popular vote.
Now they want to change the rules during the game. But the Supreme Court deciding to take the case could change everything.
