Federal judge blocks motion by Colorado electors to upend state rules in hopes of not electing Trump

Recommended Posts

DENVER – A federal judge in Colorado on Monday denied a motion filed last week by two Colorado electors who want to upend the state law that requires them to vote for the presidential candidate who won the state’s popular vote.

Judge Wiley Daniel said that granting the motion to allow electors to vote against the popular vote "would undermine" the electoral process. He advised the two plaintiffs in the suit, Robert Nemanich, of Colorado Springs, and Polly Baca, a former state senator from Denver, that if they were unhappy, they should go through the Legislature to change state law.

MORE from ^^^

The judge said voters had a reasonable expectation that electors should vote with the public and called the suit a "political stunt."

LOL I agree!

I said exactly what the judge did, in another thread, take it to the state legislature. If I knew  that and the judge knew that, you KNOW they had to know that!

Lawyer probably a uninformed liberal, who was probably high most of time he was in law school.. Then again he probably received a participation degree for just showing up. LOL
