The Law is Clear: If An Election is Stolen, State Legislatures Can Restore The Will of The People

President Trump and his team are under a relentless media blitz campaign which has only one goal: Pressuring the president to concede the election and stop asking questions about suspicious behavior in decisive states. Thuggish CNN anchor Jake Tapper is openly proposing that those who question the election result should have their careers ruined.

The sheer intensity of this campaign is proof enough that Trump should not concede. A campaign this brazen can only be motivated by one thing: Fear. Democrats and their press adjuncts fear what a full investigation of last week’s vote might reveal.

President Trump must continue his campaign. But the president must not act alone. State-level Republicans must rally behind him and conduct a full audit of the election results. If enough evidence of fraud is found, these state-level Republicans must be prepared to assemble state legislators in emergency sessions to choose slates of pro-Trump electors. Such an action is not illegal. In fact, in the face of glaring illegality, it is both a constitutional and moral duty.

State legislators in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and other disputed states should declare openly, right now, that they will only accept a Joe Biden victory after a thorough and complete investigation of all potential voter fraud in every state where the electoral outcome is contested. If these investigations are obstructed by the left, then they can and must exercise their Constitutional power to choose electors that restore the will of the people.

This is not only a moral necessity to restore dignity and legitimacy to our nation’s electoral system — it is entirely constitutional. Having state lawmakers choose electors is not a new concept. Federal law already gives legislatures the exact power to do this. 

As most Americans know, the U.S. president is not elected directly by the public but is instead chosen by the Electoral College. Few people, though, know the exact manner in which the Electoral College chooses the president.

The actual Electoral College election is governed by the Electoral Count Act, an 1887 law amended in 1948. Among other things, this law sets the exact day that the Electoral College meets: The Monday after the second Wednesday of December. On that day (December 14 in 2020) the chosen electors will assemble in each state and formally cast their votes.

This day is a hard deadline, fixed by federal law. States must have their electors chosen by then. In fact, the Electoral Count Act explicitly accounts for what to do if a disputed election or other problem means electors cannot be chosen by voters:

Whenever any State has held an election for the purpose of choosing electors, and has failed to make a choice on the day prescribed by law, the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of such State may direct. [Legal Information Institute]

In other words, federal law explicitly empowers state legislators to decide how a state’s electoral votes should be awarded, even after election day, if that election “failed to make a choice.” Certainly, such a “failure” would include a fraud-ridden election whose outcome cannot be trusted.

It’s a precedent the Supreme Court has endorsed relatively recently. In 2000’s Bush v. Gore ruling, a Court majority affirmed that:

…the State legislature’s power to select the manner for appointing electors is plenary; it may, if it so chooses, select the electors itself. … The State, of course, after granting the franchise in the special context of Article II, can take back the power to appoint electors. See id., at 35 (“[T]here is no doubt of the right of the legislature to resume the power at any time, for it can neither be taken away nor abdicated”)  [Legal Information Institute]

Princeton political science professor Keith Whittington, who otherwise opposes state legislatures intervening in the 2020 election, admits in a recent piece that “The Constitution arguably gives state legislatures the power to appoint presidential electors right up until the day the electors meet to cast their ballots.”

In the case of a stolen election, Republican lawmakers, then, should not feel ashamed or hide away from what the law plainly empowers them to do. This would not be an act of usurping the will of the people, it would instead be a noble and heroic act of restoring the will of the people that was viciously taken away from them in the dead of night.

With each passing day, it looks more and more clear that they must seriously consider exercising this power. Evidence is steadily piling up that Democratic leads in the 2020 election’s decisive states are built on a bedrock of fraud.

In Nevada, not only did out-of-state residents vote, but the dead rose from their graves to cast ballots as well. In Fulton County, Georgia, officials told the public they were done counting for the night, and then secretly spent another three hours tallying votes unobserved. In Michigan, a newly-filed lawsuit alleges spectacular levels of fraud in Wayne County. One poll watcher says he forged votes fraudulently added to the state’s qualified voter list. Another person, a Detroit poll watcher, signed an affidavit saying she repeatedly saw city workers coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and other downballot Democrats. These are not flimsy Twitter allegations. They are sworn statements under oath. If the people making these claims are lying, they can be criminally charged.

When enough fraud is found in lesser races to throw the entire outcome into doubt, courts have ordered entirely new elections to be held. But with an office as critical as president, such an option is not feasible. Not only would another presidential election cost too much and take too long, but the Constitution simply does not allow for it. The Constitution explicitly requires a president to be chosen by the Electoral College prior to January 20.

If the 2020 election was stolen, then, only one recourse will remain: Republican-controlled state legislatures must act, and vote to choose Donald Trump’s electors for their Electoral College delegation. They cannot be passive. They cannot simply sit around and let the Trump campaign do all the work, or wait for some state court to tell everyone how things will be. State lawmakers must start setting the agenda right now. They must relentlessly drive forward investigations, and refuse to accept propaganda from the press and ass-covering excuses from left-aligned bureaucrats.

If states cannot satisfactorily demonstrate by December 14 that their voting procedures were legitimate and free of fraud, then the law gives state legislatures no choice but to act to restore the will of the people of their respective states. They will be obligated to pick a slate of Donald Trump-aligned electors, and send their votes to Washington, as the Constitution and Supreme Court explicitly allow.

What in the WORLD are you talking about? Jesus said pay your taxes. “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and render unto God what is God’s” (meaning the tithe, 10% of your income to the church). He never preached any “tax revolt”. Too many Biblical ignoramuses in America. No WONDER why we are in the state we are in this country. Stupidity reigns supreme. No wisdom, no discernment about right vs. wrong.

Jill you dont know Jesus like you think you do. Jesus said look at the coin, whos image is on it? Then he said give unto Cesar that which belongs to Cesar and give to God that which belongs to God.
He was not saying the coin belonged to Cesar or that you owe taxes at all, He was, being in the presence of tax collectors, misdirecting their attention by confusion. All things belong to God, for has man created the earth or the elements therein ?
Before you become an authority on Jesus make sure you know him !

I’ve been saved since 1990 and have read the Bible multiple times. Render unto Caesar means …. (wait for it) … RENDER UNTO CAESAR. Stop trying to make it seem like He was saying something else. In that scene He was telling people to give Caesar the money that is owed to him in taxes, but also take some of your money to RENDER UNTO GOD. That means the church. I’ll bet you don’t even tithe that 10%, do you? Your own GREED, which is a sin, is affecting your discernment negatively. Jesus’ words align with what Paul wrote about later: that we are to obey the civil authorities (that means PAY YOUR TAXES) and to pray for them (that means …. wow … PRAY for them). Have you done that? I have. I didn’t vote for Obama, but I prayed for him. That is what we are commanded to do. God will judge you severely for preaching Biblical error and on purpose to justify your sin of greed.

I don’t doubt your salvation but your doctrinal understanding is weak. We are no longer under the law and Jesus’ earthly ministry was specifically to and for Israel. (“I am sent not but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel” Matt 15:24). It was the apostle Paul who presented Jesus’ ministry to gentiles and he said we are no longer under the law. His ministry was “the preaching of Jesus according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began” (Rom 16:25). Christian doctrine comes from Romans through Philemon and not the gospels. We are justified unto eternal life by his death and sanctified by his resurrection. I’m not being snarky. Just trying to help you get from where I used to be and into the light of “rightly dividing the word of truth” 2 Tim 2:15

You sir are the weak one. You are off on pretty much every statement You make. You rely on Paul? Now allow ME.
Paul wrote in Romans 13:1-7:

“1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which is from God. The authorities that exist have been appointed by God. 2 Consequently, whoever resists authority is opposing what God has set in place, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

3For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Do you want to be unafraid of the one in authority? Then do what is right, and you will have his approval. 4 For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not carry the sword in vain. He is God’s servant, an agent of retribution to the wrongdoer.

5 Therefore it is necessary to submit to authority, not only to avoid punishment, but also as a matter of conscience. 6This is also why you pay taxes. For the authorities are God’s servants, who devote themselves to their work. 7 Pay everyone what you owe him: taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.”

I agree with Jill. Jesus did say in “Matthew 17: 26 and in Mark 12:13 – 17 that you give to the government(Caesar) what is Caesars, to to God what is God’s… By doing that you silence the hypocrites and unbelievers, live with integrity, clear conscience, and humbleness. If we all lived in accordance with what Jesus said, we would not be in the chaos we are in today…..

Matt 17:24-26
Most Pastors and others get this passage wrong. This is not about paying taxes to Caesar. It is about paying the Temple Tax in place of taking a censer. If you go to (Exodus 30:11-16). God instituted 1/2 shekel to be offered on Yom Kipper and it would represent the atonement of each soul who gives. This was instituted in place of counting God’s children. They’d count the shekels and know how many Jews they had. God told Moses my children are not numbers, they have names. Whenever there was a count, it had to be by their name, name of tribe, father, etc. That’s why this Temple tax was instituted b/c it was too difficult to remember all names. It was a ransom for their souls until the one who would pay the ransom would come. (Matt 20:28) David got into big trouble when he told his captain to number his army. (2Sam 24:1-9) He suffered the consequences and that’s how he purchased Mount Moriyah which is the Temple Mount today.

The Pharisees ASKED does your master pay the tax? God labeled it an offering. The Pharisees called it a tax. They weren’t sure who exactly Christ was. This was shortly after the Transfiguration which Peter witnessed and just after Yom Kipper when the tax is due. Peter had just previously told Christ when asked that he knew Christ was the Son of God. (Matt 16:13-18)
Christ does not want to confuse Peter re. the Temple Tax. We are the sons of God Peter. That Temple is the temple of our Father, so we don’t have to pay the tax right? But we don’t want to offend. Christ did not want anyone to know who he was. If he refused to pay that tax it would cause controversy which he didn’t want. So he paid with the shekel in the fish 1/2 each for him and Peter. One must understand the culture of the Hebrews in order to know what’s going on.

Kathleen, please show where, chapter and verse, bc it’s not in Matt or Mark, that Jesus stated to give anything to the ‘government’. You are either confused or you feel justified to put words in Jesus’ mouth.

If you insist on conflating government with ‘Caesar’, then answer this; who is the government in the USA?

No, it’s not George Washington, Abraham Lincoln or any other man that has their graven image upon a coin. Only one answer, OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE.

If you want to interpret Jesus’ words and insist that people act upon that interpretation, then render unto US what is OURS. That would be an accurate interpretation of ‘render unto Caesar what is Caesars’.”

Matthew 22 Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?” 18But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, “Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? 19“Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax.” And they brought Him a denarius. 20And He said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” 21They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” Then He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” 22And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away. When posed with the tax question, Jesus gave a simple straightforward answer using the coin as a teaching aid and device. What he said was that when you look at a coin out of your pocket and see Caesar’s likeness and inscription on it, if you believe that that coin belongs to Caesar merely because of the markings on it, then by all means, give it to Caesar… If not, then don’t give it to him!! So basically, he left it up to the free will of his followers as to what each should do. If you think that merely because our paper and coin currencies have dead American Presidents on them, that our money automatically, ipso facto belongs to the government, then give them your money… If not, do not! It is that simple! As usual, he left it to each individual believer to listen to their own consciences and the Lord’s voice to them and decide what the Lord willed them/us to do; and then obey the Lord and their/your conscience.

To clarify His position on this subject Jesus said the following in Matthew 17: 24When they came to Capernaum, those who collected the two-drachma tax came to Peter and said, “Does your teacher not pay the two-drachma tax?” 25He said, “Yes.” And when he came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect customs or poll-tax, from their sons or from strangers?” 26When Peter said, “From strangers,” Jesus said to him, “THEN THE SONS ARE EXEMPT. 27“However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me.” So the tax was paid with money from the mouth of the fish, not out of their pockets, So basically He said that if you wish to avoid “offending” the taxing authorities (with all that that entails) pay the tax, but if not don’t BECAUSE ALL BELIEVERS IN AND FOLLOWERS OF JESUS ARE EXEMPT FROM MAN’S SYSTEMS OF TAXATION.

That 10% tithe you are talking of was a one time deal that God instructed Moses to put to the people wandering in the desert, for the construction of the mobile Temple. And it was for only the people that WANTED to give. Because HE knew that would be more than enough. Nowhere in Scripture is there any law or instruction to give your church or any church 10% of your wealth.

I don’t enter into contracts that require it. Then there’s all the false, ignorant arguments about ‘how does government pay for things?’, not my problem and not my responsibility. I never agreed to any of that. But, income tax doesn’t pay for ANYTHING in the USA, it only pays part of the interest on the national debt to international b✡nkers. IRREFUTABLE FACT, go read The Grace Commission Report, sponsored by congress.

Wow, John Rambo. I have been looking for this answer about Jesus’ view on taxes for months now. It’s clear the 401c3 tax exempt churches isolating the well known “render unto Ceasar” snippet without the wider context of the clear fact that Jesus was being sly and in fact mocking Ceasar by saying he was not god, like he claimed is to keep their cash flow coming.

If the “churches” teach in Jesus name that their followers should “render unto Ceasar,” why are the churches hypocrites and not “rendering unto ceasar” themselves? Churches are tax exempt, so they’re not “rendering unto Ceasar!” Scam in the name of Jesus churches are.

Churches never had to be taxed. Until President Johnson Amendment who introduced the act. It was made as a benefit to churches. If their flock knew they could write off their offerings thru their taxes, they would be inclined to attend/offer more $$$ as an incentive. Churches fell for this. But the devil was in the details. No church that accepts this plan can speak against the gov’t mandates. Which means shortly thereafter, the abortion debacle was introduced followed by ssm, transvestites, etc., etc. So the churches are beholden to the Gov’t. Do as gov’t says. Biblical mandates. which is what churches should make known, do not supersede.

Guess what the Gov. never said boo, they did nothing because they can do nothing, and they don’t want the rest of the country to know it and if they did try to stop them the jig would be up & that is exactly why they said nary a word about it. People are deceived into believing this lie and it has been very effective.

You obviously haven’t read The Art Of The Deal. In Chapter Two, Trump says this: “Much as it pays to emphasize the positive, there are times when the only choice is confrontation. When people treat me badly or try to take advantage of me, my general attitude all my life has been to fight back very hard. There are a lot of people gunning for me now. One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitable follow. There are people — I categorize them as life’s losers — who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me. They’d be doing something constructive themselves.”

Billy: The Electors are not an issue here with regards to the subject of this article.

The state legislators have the power assign the electors as they wish.

In this current scenario, the republican legislature would assign electors who with
some high level of certainty would vote for the republican candidate.

The big issue as I see it is: Are there enough republican legislators that support
the republican candidate (Trump)? There are too many republicans out there that
do not support him. Look at the last 4 years. He has been fighting as many republicans
as democrats.

In the face of highly questionable voter rolls, free-for-all ballot procedures, ballot dumps in the middle of the night, non-verification of submitted ballots, lockouts of observers etc, what PA (and other states) legislatures could also do in good conscience is not assign electors at all!

This would reduce the total number of electoral votes voted in the electoral college.

If other suspect states did the same, then Trump would win.

The lesson would be – Run a fair, honest, verifiable election. If not, you forfeit your vote.

Trump needs to *threaten* these legislators with the possibility that he will tell his supporters not to vote for them ever again if they do *not* do this.

Again, at least 70% of Trump’s supporters believe he legitimately won. If Trump tells his supporters that GOP legislatures did nothing to stop the steal of the presidency, and Trump tells them not to vote for them, those voters won’t vote for them. If even just 20% of their voters refuse to vote for them in the next election, they are completely screwed. No GOP legislator will ever win re-election ever again.

I hope state legislators in WI, MI, and PA realize this is the situation they are faced with. If possible, someone at the Trump team, perhaps the president himself, should be calling every single one GOP legislator in these swing states and explaining this to them. They need to be convinced that they really will be *completely screwed* if they *don’t* do this, so that their self-interest overcomes any cowardice.

I hope they consider this.

Trump’s comedic routine about Democrat efforts to cheat him is going to be hilarious. Then he will turn his supporters loose on the state legislators. They will have no choice but to do the right thing.

William, great breakdown. However, I believe that there is ALSO another alternative if the State representatives either cannot (not enough time to uncover the fraud), or are unwilling to appoint electors. That alternative is that they simply do NOTHING. This would send it to the House of Representatives who will then (after January 3), have one vote per state. Republicans will have at least 27 (possibly 28) votes to Dems 20-21 votes (there are 3-4 states that are tied because they are evenly split between Rs and Ds). Trump would win.

It might be state by state, but I think the appointment of electors is on autopilot unless the legislatures take action. So, if they do nothing, the governor certifies the election and the Biden electoral votes are sent to Washington. The legislatures need to step up.

Yes, you are correct. My alternative was based upon a presumption that I failed to mention in my earlier post which is that the SCOTUS enjoins the certification if and when the legal votes can be established in each of these swing states. If the SCOTUS enjoins the certification, then any governmental entity (besides the state legislatures), would be prohibited from certifying the election. As such, the state legislative body could either appoint its own electors OR refuse to appoint anyone, at which time it would go to the House of Representatives. Sorry that I didn’t make this premise clear in my last post.

Leta: If they want to survive politically they will do it. They know Trump need only say the word to their voters when they are up for election and they will throw them out of office. Anyone who witnesses the rallies over the past month knows that Pres Trump is far more popular than any of the states’ legislators and they know it. They just need a phone call from the President to remind them of that fact.

Yes, there are a lot of Never Trumpers. Still, I would certainly hope that overriding a fraudulent election result based on massive nationwide cheating scheme hatched by the left to get a demented and failed career politician elected would outweigh any negative sentiments about Trump. Any Republican who would prefer that the deeply corrupt and compromised Biden be fraudulently installed as President to the prospect of a second Trump term should be drummed out of the party.

We need to have recounts in all states that used the Dominion Systems software. Just look up the definition of “Dominion”. This is shady all around.

I do not believe in the “hundred monkey theory”.

True, credible claims of voter fraud are numerous; however, they might not come in sufficient number to ultimately change the result. The real issue involves the counting process, especially with respect to the computer systems which, according to what I have read, have evidently been tampered with, switching thousands of votes from President Trump to candidate Biden, enough to actually flip several states. I’m sure we’ll be reading more on this in the coming days: hopefully those state legislators are paying attention.

I think this bit of decision theory, with some caveats, is basically correct for very many Rs:

If there was massive fraud, particularly digital, Rs in these swing states need to take drastic action, or else they are permanently blackmailed and can be taken out at any time; any agreement with Ds to not take you out can’t be trusted, because you know they are capable of and actually committed massive fraud, and there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t do it to you.

If there was not massive fraud, Rs in the swing states need to take drastic action, because according to several polls I’ve seen, about 70% of Rs think there was, and since there wasn’t massive fraud, those peoples’ votes do, in fact, matter. Even if Rs in these states lose 20-30% of their voters because those voters think the legislature didn’t do enough, it would be a complete disaster for MI, WI, and PA GOP legislators.

Either way, only rational strategy for very many R legislators is to take drastic action, e.g., if necessary, invalidating results and directly appointing electors.

I hope state legislators in WI, MI, and PA realize this is the rational choice situation they are faced with. If possible, someone at the Trump team needs to call every single GOP legislator in these swing states and explain this to them. They need to be convinced that they really will be *completely screwed* if they *don’t* do this, so that their self-interest overcomes any cowardice.

William

P.S. Trump needs to *threaten* these legislators with the possibility that he will tell his supporters not to vote for them ever again if they do *not* do this.

Again, at least 70% of Trump’s supporters believe he legitimately won. If Trump tells them GOP legislatures did nothing to stop the steal of the presidency, and Trump tells them not to vote for them, those voters won’t vote for them. No GOP legislator will ever win re-election ever again.

I hope they consider this.

Saw the twitter remarks about the PA complaint. The remarks fail to mention that not only did Republican counties abide by the canvassing laws and not reach out to voters to cure their deficient mail in ballots (which resulted in those deficient ones not being counted), BUT even the democratic counties named were reaching out to registered democrats to cure; not both parties.
That is a violation of equal protection. Further, one of the counties, Montgomery County, is the hometown of PA Atty General Shapiro where he was a DA. And he is on the ballot for re election. So stole an office himself.

With all the questions surrounding these states, if they cannot root out the fraud or explain the irregularities then there is no way they can certify these elections.
The halted counting in the middle of it and restarting in the middle of the night is enough for me quite frankly.
That is exactly what you see in banana republics and a sure sign of nefarious intent and activities.

This is also why the Electoral College System.. is Complete Genius. This couldn’t have happened at a better time to remind us of its value and simple brilliance. It must never be removed.

Also GA sec of state?? If he fails to honor the agreed upon hand count audit and do so in accordance with the rules to check registration, as detailed by the GOP legislators letter in a post, take him to court or remove him from office immediately. Who cares if he pretends to be GOP. So does Romney. No one should interfere with a lawful, valid and legitimate election process. In fact, he should encourage it.

Btw – saw his interview on NewsMax. Gave me the creeps. Follow the money there. He failed to acknowledge that same machines and Dominion software that had glitches all over the country (and they had glitches too) but that could not cause any counting issues there? Is he a pod?

And for God’s sake GA fix your residency requirements to vote in runoff now by Exec Order like other Governors did (60-90 days out instead of 30). Protect the lawful vote of GA residents; not carpetbaggers being paid to become temporary resident/voters.

Currently there are documented “hiccups” in multiple states at multiple times that in a coordinated effort suddenly started deducting from one candidate and at the same time increasing for another.

I am not sure you understand how counting machines work. You add; you don’t subtract. Votes are counted. After cross checking the markers for validity and legality, you add the vote to one OR the other. You don’t add to one and subtract from the other.

Huge red flag on top of all the othe stuff; refusal to allow watchers (some counties like phila actually tried to litigate that even before the election despite it being in the election laws); dead people voting; former residents voting; not 18 yrs old and over 150 yrs old; can’t vote more than 1x, etc.

If this is not the quintessential time to invoke the state legislatures’ power to select electors, then there can never be a time.

President Trump must not hesitate. The 71 million people who voted for him and those of us who contributed to and volunteered for his campaign urge him to take this bold and supremely necessary move: to urge the state legislators in WI, PA, MI and GA to do their duty.

Too much is at stake for the President to waver.

There is no time to waste. Every minute counts.

This is Joe Montana or Tom Brady with 2 minutes left on the clock and throwing a game winning touchdown.

GOP are part of the one party state. They won’t support the republic, that is why the second amendment was written and enacted.

State Level Republicans won’t rally behind Trump and do not want a full audit of the election result because the Republicans are also behind the fraud. Why do you think Republican precincts voted less for Trump than they voted along party lines? According to the data analysis by MIT researchers of Dominion Voting Results there is an anomaly (fraud) in Republican precincts. See the video of the data analysis by MIT researchers: https://youtu.be/Ztu5Y5obWPk

This is the real reason that they wanted to get rid of the electoral college.

“Democracy” means nothing to them. If it did, they’d want every vote counted. They wouldn’t be standing in the way of literally every effort to secure the voting process.

They don’t even want us to have the right to leave our homes, let alone select who sits in office.

All their talk of “unity” and “healing” is just a smokescreen. And, they need that smokescreen. Because if they ever honestly came out and told the truth about who they are and what they want, they’d be driven out of this country and never allowed to return.

Why accept the current results as they are completely corrupted. The statistics and the mail in ballot fiasco and the breaking of state election law are enough to toss the results in the trash. There is no point to recount ballots that were never verified, whose chain of custody is unmonitored. There is no point in working with ballots where the undervote is missing biden to trump 98000 to 850. Those are corrupted on their face. Impossible unless fraud or gross error. The distribution is the proof of error. The impossibilities go on and on and why would we accept this? Republicans go direct to legislature and voe because the election is corrupt and it’s why no one accepts it. It’s either reject the corruption or we Trumpers go 3rd party. You will never work again in politics.
