...that while states can choose electors pursuant to their constitutional powers, it is being argued that they can't remove them after they vote.

I think it's bullshit. Since states control the process constitutionally, the states can contractually demand that they follow the state law throughout the process or forfeit their positions. But how far does that go? There is a plurality of states who intend to award all of their electors to whoever wins the national popular vote, but they're holding off on that until they amass enough electors to decide the election, which is facially unconstitutional; states cannot enter into pacts with other states without the specific approval of the Congress.

But I hain't no lawyer, so I may be all wet.



Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
