    The PBS News Hour is reporting that Hillary lost more electoral votes than Trump did today when the electors cast their votes (Monday 12/19/2016).

    The feed is not on the internet yet, but it will be up sometime soon:

    Oh poster please. For the last month I've been pointing out to EC wankers that the Electors can and do vote for anyone they want, including people who weren't even running for President. "No no" they huffed, "those electors would go to jail if they dare defy their state!"

    Guess which one of us was right.

    Who might have guessed that a public radio station coffee room attendant would be licensed to practice law in each and every one of Obama's 57 states!

    The enlightenment.........it's grand!

    The democrats and republicans who failed to vote for the winning candidate should face prison time.

    For what?

    Out of the 157 conscientious electors who declined to follow that pattern, exactly zero have been prosecuted.
    And with good reason. A Constitutional lawyer would rip that state law to shredded underwear.

    Now then.

    What should the voters who failed to vote for the candidate in their own state face? They've already had their votes thrown away. Is that enough or should they be, I dunno, sterilized? Put on the rack? Drawn and quartered?

    It isn't "bad" or "good". It simply proved the point.
