Before the election, when all of the so-called political experts were certain that Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would defeat Republican Donald Trump, conservatives were constantly lectured by liberals about respecting the outcome of the race.
Since Trump’s victory on Nov. 8, however, the liberal tune has changed, and electors in some states have even been harassed about not casting their vote for the GOP candidate on Dec. 19 when the 538 state electors will officially select our country’s next president.
Electors in Arizona have been particularly flooded with emails and phone calls from activists demanding that they defy the will of their state’s voters by choosing Clinton instead of President-elect Trump, and one of the state’s 11 electors reported that most of the demands have come from out of state, according to Fox News.
Robert Graham, chairman of Arizona’s Republican Party and an elector, said the emails he received appeared to be part of a coordinated effort to try to deny Trump the presidency by swaying enough electors to back anyone but him.
“It is total harassment,” Graham said, according to The Arizona Republic, estimating that he had received roughly 1,700 such emails and letters. “It started about a week ago. Now? Bam. It’s hardcore.”
The elector explained that most of the contacts have come from out-of-state activists, which means that people outside of state are attempting to override the will of that state’s voters.
Although electors were not required to vote for Trump, they each pledged to support the party’s nominee through affidavits submitted to the secretary of state, the Republic reported.
Bruce Ash, another elector and Arizona’s GOP national committeeman, deemed the hundreds of calls and emails he had received “an outright political maneuver.”
So much for “respecting” the outcome of the race, huh?
One frustrated elector has called on Clinton herself to put an end to the non-stop harassment.
“She has to stop all this … this is ridiculous,” Sharon Geise, an elector from Mesa, said, according to Townhall.
But of course, the mainstream media outlets have largely ignored this attempt to circumvent our election process, unlike their non-stop coverage of Trump’s pre-election comment that he would not automatically concede upon losing without being sure the outcome was fairly decided.
