Can you speak to his accuracy? I intend to base an editorial on it.
I wrote a response on the thread. I don’t think it works. This isn’t a dead candidate AFTER an election. This would be replacing someone in the MIDDLE of an election, after votes had been counted.
Just one singe person could bring a successful suit saying, “No, I didn’t vote for the D ‘electors,’ I voted for Cankles.” And he’d have a point.
The problem with the electoral college vote, and I have also written that it is actually determined by the electors themselves, is that it is only an issue with Hillary if Hillary wins the majority of electors in the election itself.
If she does, I find it hard to believe that she will willingly release them to vote for someone other than herself who will have just won an election.
Additionally, I agree with LS that this kind of situation will so depress/change the democrat turnout that it’s unlikely a democrat would win.
My real concern is some obscure clause in the constitution or some law that I might be missing regarding the president calling for new elections in the event of disruption of this election.
Is there any such thing that anyone knows of?
Also, read this very closely and imagine how a legal beagle could distort it:
“No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.”
I do not see it saying that a person cannot HOLD the office of president more than twice. It says they cannot be elected to that office more than twice.
On second thought, keep her on life support until December 19.
I am wondering what would happen if Hitlery died, either before, or after, the election.
Also wondering, elsewhere I read a quote (from where...???, maybe I can find) that if a candidate should die before election but after being nominated, the DNC members would vote among themselves to elect a new candidate. Of course that doesn’t sound possible, after reading LS’s article.
