Democrats are dishonest in even considering undermining this election and eroding the Constitution.
At least a half-dozen Democratic electors have signed onto an attempt
to block Donald Trump from winning an Electoral College majority, an
effort designed not only to deny Trump the presidency but also to
undermine the legitimacy of the institution.
The presidential electors, mostly former Bernie Sanders supporters
who hail from Washington state and Colorado, are now lobbying their
Republican counterparts in other states to reject their oaths — and in
some cases, state law — to vote against Trump when the Electoral College
meets on Dec. 19.
But the Democratic electors are convinced that even in defeat, their
efforts would erode confidence in the Electoral College and fuel efforts
to eliminate it, ending the body’s 228-year run as the only official
constitutional process for electing the president.
