HARASSED AND INTIMIDATED: Electoral College Voters Still Being THREATENED To Stop TRUMP

Written by K. Walker on December 15, 2016

Whiny, sore loser Liberals are still trying to get the Electoral College voters to change their votes to keep Trump out of the White House.

The thousands of pleading messages, the demands, and even threats are coming in daily.

Electors around the country are being harassed with a barrage of emails, phone calls and letters — and even death threats — in an effort to block Donald Trump from being voted in as president by the Electoral College on Monday.

The bullying is overwhelming Sharon Geise’s tech devices, but not her resolve to support Trump.

The Mesa, Arizona, grandmother woke up Wednesday morning to more than 1,500 emails demanding she not carry out her legal duty to vote for the president-elect.

“They just keep coming and coming,” Geise told The Post, estimating she’s received more than 50,000 emails since the election. “They’re overpowering my iPad.”…

…Reports of GOP electors being badgered have been reported in numerous states, including Georgia, Idaho, Tennessee, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.

Like Geise, Republican Patricia Allen of Tennessee told The Post she’s been bombarded with 2,000 emails, 120 letters and five phone calls all urging her to switch and vote against Trump. But Allen, 74, said that despite the “siege,” she’s not budging.

“This has never happened before … Do you know how long it takes to delete all those emails every day?” she asked.

She’s also been solicited by a Harvard University group backed by constitutional law Prof. Lawrence Lessig, who has offered free legal aid to electors who change their vote.

“That borders on bribery,” said Allen. “Carried to this extreme, the day might come when an elector could be sold to the highest bidder.”

Is this how democracy works?

These electors made a commitment to vote according to their state’s popular vote, and now they are facing intimidation to change their vote to who?

Hillary?

Kasich?

Wow.

Either one would be an assault on American democracy.

This is the system we have.

Yeah, it’s not perfect, but it does give weight to the less populous states.

Otherwise, just a handful of states would decide who the President is every single time.

It just makes me wonder… would Liberals be as opposed to the Electoral College if Trump had won the Popular Vote and Hillary had 270 Electoral College votes?

I’m guessing no.
