Electoral college

www.rawstory.com/2016/12/colorado-republican-threatens-state-electors-with-felony-charges-if-they-fail-to-cast-votes-as-instructed
Is trying to make sure that Trump is elected. This whole election needs to be re done without voting machines. The ones that think Trump will obey the law and follow regulations are dreaming. In another article shows that since the russian hack of our election Putin's popularity among republicans is going up. Shows that they are not as patriotic as they claim.

1. Colorado electors were never voting for Trump in the first place

 

Hillary gets all 9 unless they decide to vote for another Democrat

2. I thought the Electors' votes were anonymous?

If that is true then an Elector could vote for America and democracy, and then afterwards lie (which is so Republican to begin with) and claim that they actually voted for Republican family-values role model Comrade Casino (R).

No one would ever know for sure. And America would continue to be great.

4. I don't think they are

otherwise how would the laws posing sanctions for being a "faithless elector" be enforceable?

5. So, though it is Ok to have an existing felony and be an Elector, I guess you join the party....

He resigned after the conviction and served one year in federal prison. source- Wikipedia
