I’m not a fan of the electoral college, but it’s there for a purpose…and if it can’t serve that purpose, it should be disbanded. A reader sent in this suggestion for putting the college to work, and I’m just quoting their words directly:
In a live Facebook session yesterday, a couple of the Hamilton Electors said that at this point what’s needed aren’t more letters and emails to the electors, but to:
(1) Contact your representatives and governors to ask that they demand that the electors be debriefed on the CIA information on Russian interference prior to Dec. 19, and to delay the electoral vote if that’s not possible, given the time-frame.
(2) Contact the U.S. Attorney General and ask that the Electoral College vote be postponed until a full investigation of Russian interference and the Trump campaign’s potential coordination with Russia is complete.
You can reach the Attorney General’s office at 202-514-2000 (Comment line…press 4)
