Any member of the Electoral College who wants to vote against Donald Trump but would violate state law by doing so has the support of a Harvard University law professor and a California-based law firm.
Larry Lessig has started “The Electors Trust” in order to give free counsel to electors through the firm Durie Tangri. Lessig said his group will also give electors guaranteed anonymity so they can determine if there are enough electors set on keeping Trump from winning the presidency.
The number of electors Hillary Clinton and her allies need to flip may actually decrease, if an Obama-appointed judge gets his way.
U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith ordered the state of Michigan to undergo a hand recount and to have it completed by December 13 and if it’s not done by that date, the state’s electoral votes could be in jeopardy.
“If allowed to proceed, the statewide hand recount could cost Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars and would put Michigan voters at risk of being disenfranchised in the electoral college,” Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said.
