Federal judge blocks motion by Colorado electors to upend state rules

Electors in Colorado, like a lot of liberal progressive, want to change the rules after the fact. This time a Federal judge blocked their motion to allow them to do what they wanted with the Donald Trump votes. One of the great Democrat strategims is that if they cannot legislate their advantage, they will try to use the courts. It did not work in this case.

As Written By Blair Miller for The Denver Channel:

A federal judge in Colorado on Monday denied a motion filed last week by two Colorado electors who want to upend the state law that requires them to vote for the presidential candidate who won the state’s popular vote.

Judge Wiley Daniel said that granting the motion to allow electors to vote against the popular vote “would undermine” the electoral process. He advised the two plaintiffs in the suit, Robert Nemanich, of Colorado Springs, and Polly Baca, a former state senator from Denver, that if they were unhappy, they should go through the Legislature to change state law.

The judge said voters had a reasonable expectation that electors should vote with the public and called the suit a “political stunt.”

Nemanich and Baca filed the suit last Tuesday in U.S. District Court of Colorado against Colorado’s governor, secretary of state and attorney general. They had said for more than a week prior to filing that they would work with other electors from across the country to make someone other than Trump president.

Micheal Baca, another of Colorado’s electors, had threatened to do the same. But instead, he on Monday joined a push by other electors across the country to be briefed by the intelligence community on purported hacks allegedly carried out by Russians with ties to the Kremlin before they cast their Electoral College vote on Dec. 19.

Williams applauded the judge’s decision in a statement on Twitter, saying Daniel was “extraordinarily well prepared.”

    This article is really confusing. Are they fighting to NOT vote for Hitlery, or are they fighting TO VOTE FOR Hitlery?

    Early on, the article says this: “They had said for more than a week prior to filing that they would work
    with other electors from across the country to make someone other than
    Trump president.” Later, it says this: “The attorney for both said they were willing to face the consequences of not voting for Clinton.” So what exactly are they fighting FOR, except to be allowed to ignore the law?

    If certain members of the Electoral College cannot perform their duties in full faith and not let their personal opinions affect their duty, then they should be relieved and allow someone that is more responsible in their place.

    Democrats have no trouble breaking the law, or even asking a judge to be complicit in breaking the law. They have no sense of a republic at all.

    Baraq Obama and Hillary Clinton have fundamentally transformed the democratic party into a terrorist organization.
