A federal court just said ‘no’ to Democrats in two major ways. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her liberal cohorts in Congress are shocked. They never expected this to happen.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Colorado Secretary of State made an unconstitutional move by invalidating an Electoral College delegate’s vote after he refused to cast his ballot according to the state’s popular vote.
Hillary Clinton won Colorado in 2016, however, Democratic voter Michael Bacca wanted to deprive both Clinton and Trump of victory and throw it to the U.S. House of Representatives for a decision.
This is ultimately bad news for the left-wing effort to destroy the Electoral College, now that we have a federal court saying a state cannot require a delegate to vote in lockstep with that state’s popular vote — and here’s why that’s the case.
“If a state cannot require that its delegates vote in accordance with its own state’s popular vote, it will therefore also never be able to require that its delegates vote in accordance with the nation’s popular vote,” writes attorney Mark Meuser.
Meuser is specifically taking aim at the liberal idea that a compact between several states can be made that would award electoral votes to whoever wins the national popular vote. It is an unconstitutional proposal that no court will ever uphold.
