Earlier this week, we reported that two Colorado electors had filed a lawsuit to overturn the law that requires them to support the winner of their statewide popular vote. Now, it’s been revealed that their case will be brought to court in Colorado on Monday.
The plaintiffs in the case are Polly Baca and Robert Nemanich, two electors who want to vote for Hillary Clinton even though their state was won by Donald Trump. Their suit will be presided over by U.S. District Court Judge Wiley Daniel, a Bill Clinton appointee confirmed to the court in 1995.
“Plaintiffs are entitled to exercise their judgment and free will to vote for whomever they believe to be the most qualified and fit for the offices of President and Vice President, whether those candidates are Democrats, Republicans, or from a third party,” the plaintiffs argued in their brief, according to Politico.
Baca and Nemanich claim that the law in question violates the way the founding fathers designed the Electoral College. They cited Alexander Hamilton’s original description of the Electoral College in saying that the Founders intended it to act as a check on the popular will, to ensure the election of a qualified candidate.
“It’s difficult to imagine a more impermissible law than one that requires someone to vote for a specific candidate. The concept is antithetical to the notion of democracy, free speech, and the Electoral College,” they wrote.
Baca and Nemanich are hoping that their attack on Colorado’s law will undermine similar laws in 28 other states, where Democrat electors are also grumbling about voting for Trump. It’s terrifying that this lawsuit is being heard by a Clinton appointee, meaning that there’s a much bigger chance the judge will rule in their favor…
