More Electors Mutiny Against Hillary: Three Cast Votes For Colin Powell, One For "Faith Spotted Eagle"

Adding insult to injury, not to mention humiliating loss, following the first "faithless elector" to emerge earlier in the day in Minnesota, and who voted for Bernie Sanders instead of Hillary Clinton, a drama broke out in Washington State, where Stop Trump protesters gathered at the Statehouse in Olympia before the noon vote. 

 

That wasn't the drama: what was, however, is that according to AP, after the vote, "Democrat Hillary Clinton received eight votes, former Secretary of State Colin Powell got three, and Faith Spotted Eagle, an elder in the Yankton Dakota tribe, got one. Clinton won the state's popular vote."

More details from AP:

Four members of the Electoral College in Washington state cast their votes for a candidate other than Democrat Hillary Clinton, who won the state's popular vote.

 

It's the first time in four decades the state's electors have broken from the popular vote for president. Washington's 12 electors met Monday afternoon in the state Capitol to complete the constitutional formality. Clinton got eight votes while other candidates got the remaining four.

 

Elector Bret Chiafalo, who earlier in the day said he planned to vote for Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, said that he ultimately changed his vote to former Secretary of State Colin Powell after conversations with other Washington electors. The exact breakdown of the other four votes wasn't immediately known, although at least one vote was cast for "Faith Spotted Eagle."

 

In last month's election, Republican Donald Trump won 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232, though Clinton's tally will now be lower.

The four were only the most recent "faithless electors" to emerge by voting against Hillary: earlier in the day, the same thing happened with one elector in Maine, one in Minnesota and one in Colorado. Those votes were changed and registered for Clinton.

This is how rules and structure get whittled away and soon we are saying what the fuck just happened. How did we get here? Push a little push a little and nobody notices or complains. Next time they will deviate from a good candidate because the precendent has been set.

I remember Colin; he's the one who told the UN and all Americans that Bush's claim of WMDs was fake, right?

He tried to warn Americans NOT to support Bush's invasion of Iraq where over 1 million people were killed or seriously wounded, right?

Yeah, clearly he was being truthful then and can still be trusted today...

Yeah, I lived in Texas for four years and the only unarmed people had, well, no arms - but even THEY would kick that bitch's ass.

Well done. I'm sitting at my desk laughing uncontrollably. Being a Canadian among idiots, I'm not even attempting to explain it.

This is FART. The tens of thousands of pieces of mail, the hundreds of thousands of emails / social media posts sent to harrass these people. The Hollywood effort. Pelosi's spawn doing the circuit. I go to laugh, then I cringe. It is hilarious.

The shitty part is, as I've expected from the start of this fool's errand, that the effort is only to provide cover for a series of violent protests which have been being organized since the win.

Fuck it. Bring onthe collapse. I can die a happy man now. Besides we're way far on the Live side of the live die rainbow in a collapse.  Like I said, no matter how shitty life is, I wake up with a smile knowing that legions of marxist pinko wind up toys are consumed by a hybrid rage / despair. It's powered by the hubris they've had for way too long.

Yet the fake stream media said Trump electors would revolt? Hilarious 

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Hill-arious indeed. 

But you'll never see SNL do a skit of that.

The little video by those movie stars was the icing on the cake for me. This is like my 7 year old son concocting a plot to steal my wallet and take his sister to disneyland in my challenger srt8. In his mind the thing is 100% airtight gonna work up until the point I grab him by his chin and tell him he's too young for that sort of shit and the audible sound of a crushed dream can be heard.

The whole idea is from the mind of a mass of brainwashed idiots with a weapon's grade case of arrested emotional development.

Oh that is deliciously rich - they are unvoting Hillary instead.  And the Left is trying to steal the election by threatening Republican electors.  This is just too rich.

She lost votes in the WI recount, she'll lose votes in this count.

Priceless

MsCreant's picture

In her case, is it called "recunting" their vote?

Urban Redneck's picture

This was to be expected, even if they succeeded only the top 3 electoral college vote winners are permitted on a ballot in House of Representatives if no one gets to 270, so the Options would be Trump, Clinton, and #NeverTrump - the Democrats needed to put up a nominally Republican alternative to Trump because House Republicans would never vote for Sanders.  

Of course since snowflakes don't get STEM degrees or study game theory (unless on a playstation), this might actually have come as a shock to them...

Bryan's picture

What's so tragic is that they create these False Gods to support their chosen narrative, like Trump is Hitler, and America Was Never Great, and Hands Up Don't Shoot, and Global Warming, Political Correctness, Diversity, Tolerance...  And then they evangelize for and worship to these False Gods - because reality is maybe too stressful or they don't like it or they wish it weren't so?  I don't know.  It seems like liberals (and of course others, but libs generally) like a good illusion to live in.   Trump is certainly not perfect and has his own flaws, but he's also certainly not evil incarnate either.

So the illusion du jour is that Trump is Hitler and we're all going to die soon from Trump and the earth will be uninhabitable in 30 years.  Why can't they just smoke pot, eat cheeseburgers and think happy thoughts instead?  Let the imaginitive, sane, reasoning thinkers run things for a while at least.

I have the same sinking feeling. While Im enjoying the spectacle, this bodes ill for our entire election system. I dont see why we have electors at all, the votes in each district or state should be directly applied to the proper candidate.
