The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society released a bombshell paper that argues that the electoral college deadlines are based on a 72-year old federal statute with no constitutional basis.
The paper argues that the December 8th and 14th deadlines for selecting electors are an impediment to the state’s constitutional obligation to hold free and fair elections.
According to the authors of the paper, the deadlines and the accompanying guidelines are an archaic holdover from a time before the internet and faster travel when the presidential transition of power needed to happen on a set timetable.
Phill Kline, Director of The Amistad Project, said that, “Through rigorous investigations supporting our litigation, we demonstrate that state and local officials brazenly violated election laws in several swing states in order to advance a partisan political agenda. As a result, it is impossible for those states to determine their presidential Electors in line with the arbitrary deadline set forth via federal statute in 1948, and thus, the only deadline that matters is January 20, 2021.”
The election should not be settled until all concerns and irregularities have been accounted for in the election. Pushing through the nomination of Joe Biden because of arbitrary deadlines will do lasting damage to the integrity of our elections.
Democrats argue that there isn’t time to hash out the myriad of problems that have popped up in this election cycle, but if the Thomas More Society is to be believed, we have until January 20th, 2021.
