GOP electors cast votes for Trump in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania​

Republican electors in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania cast votes for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on Monday in hopes a court might overturn Joseph R. Biden’s win, even as the Electoral College voted across the nation to certify the Democrat’s victory.

Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer said Republican electors met at the state capitol to cast votes for Mr. Trump because a Trump campaign lawsuit challenging the state’s election is still pending.

“Had we not meet today and cast our votes, the President’s pending election contest would have been effectively mooted. Our action today preserves his rights under Georgia law,” Mr. Shafer tweeted.

The Pennsylvania GOP said the Trump campaign asked Republican electors to vote for Mr. Trump to preserve the right to another legal challenge that could overturn Mr. Biden’s win.

“We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward,” Trump campaign Pennsylvania chair Bernie Comfort said in a statement. “This was in no way an effort to usurp or contest the will of the Pennsylvania voters.”

Arizona GOP Chair Kelli Ward said Republican electors also met Monday to vote for Mr. Trump. She said legal challenges to the election are still being heard.

“It is imperative that the proper electors are counted by Congress,” she said.

The actions keep open the option of sending pro-Trump slates of electors to Congress, which will vote on Jan. 6 on whether to accept each state’s electoral votes. Congress can only approve one slate of electors from each state, either for Mr. Biden or for Mr. Trump.

The Electoral College was voting in all 50 state capitals on Monday to confirm Mr. Biden’s 306 electoral votes, and Mr. Trump’s 232. A candidate needs 270 to win the presidency.


Dueling electors, the game is on!

The left wing media seems to think Dec 14 was like a statute of limitations on election fraud. But their Russian election fraud allegation has still not expired.

There are no GOP electors. They could not and did not cast votes for anybody. They did a bit of stupid grandstanding that will make no difference to anybody but the terminally soft in the head.

Not only are there GOP electors, they cast their votes for President Donald John Trump. You need to change the channel from the orange-man-bad network. They will never tell you the truth. They get paid not to.
They could not and did not cast votes for anybody.
See, you believe this statement. Proof positive that you get all your information from the orange-man-bad network.

Come January 21st and President Trump is still in the White house I expect it will make some difference to several people at very least.

No, there aren't and no, they didn't.

...except that they have repeatedly done so. And it's not me who's unaware of the truth.
See, you believe this statement. Proof positive that you get all your information from the orange-man-bad network.
Because it's true. Your childish attacks on news networks that tell a truth you don't like avail you nothing.
Come January 21st and President Trump is still in the White house I expect it will make some difference to several people at very least.
Yeah, yeah, so you Trumpites have been claiming for a month or so...and every single attempt to reverse the will of the people has failed.

Check the laws in the particular states and see if electors need the governor or the secretary of state to confirm or allow or certify which slate of electors get to cast their votes. Do you think both sides of electors get to cast their votes according to the laws of the state they are in?

The judgment call Gus, is this, did the governors and / or secretaries of state obey the election laws in their respective states, in the performance of their duties respecting this election. If the answer is no, and they are at crossed purposes with the legislatures who gave them a role in the first place, well then Congress will have to make a judgment call, as occured in 1960.

No, the question is whether electors not certified by the state can cast their ballots with any legitimacy, and the answer is no, they can't, it's not legal (ETA: it has no legal force; I'm not saying they committed a crime). If the governors or SOSs didn't follow the law, the remedy is not that other electors get to cast their votes.

Since, as Gus points out, the GOP 'electors' have no legal status whatsoever, they are completely useless except as a stunt to excite the Trumpites.

And since 60 courts have found no fraud in the election, the governors and secretaries of state did obey the election laws in their respective states.

It's over.

Be sure to forward this to Mike Pence because he, like Richard Nixon in 1960, will probably be making the decision.

Before we move onto what Pence might do, do you acknowledge that there is no law in any state that says a different slate of electors can meet and cast their votes if they think that the governor or SOS did something improper?

There doesn't need to be, because that is power granted by the Constitution.

Exactly what part of the Constitution says that, for example, these slates of Republican electors from states that certified Biden as the winner, are allowed? Please quote the specific sentences that allows this.

I hope you're not going to suggest that a state legislature can certify whatever slate of electors they decide on regardless of which slate of electors was certified after the election and after legal challenges were heard but didn't change the result.

There are no GOP 'electors'. The electoral college has met; Trump lost.
The 2020 Super Bowl was won by the Kansas City Chiefs 31-20 over the San Francisco 49ers.

Can you imagine how stupid the 49er owner would look if he claimed the 49er really won the game, and the score is evidence there was a mass conspiracy between the Chiefs, the refs, and the NFL to cheat? Then filed multiple lawsuits demanding the score be changed and have every last one be laughed out of court? Then hired his own "referees" months after the game to examine game film and have them "rule" to take away all of KC's points? Then demand every sports book operation in the country pay out to those who bet on KC while demanding a return of all funds won by SF bettors?

Because that's not even close to being as stupid as what Don the Con Trump and his moronic toadie followers are trying to do now.
