Harassment in Arizona to get Trump out!

Arizona’s presidential electors are reportedly being hit by a flood of emails and phone calls demanding they defy the voters in their state and choose Hillary Clinton instead of President-elect Donald Trump — as part of a last-gasp bid to overturn the election.

Since Trump’s surprise victory on Nov. 8, those opposed to his election have engaged in a number of strategies to attempt to nix the election or declare it invalid. Protests, many of them violent, have erupted in cities such as Portland and New York City.

Others, noting that Clinton appears to be on track to win the popular vote but still lose the election, have called for the scrapping of the Electoral College altogether. Retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., introduced a bill this week calling for the scrapping of the college – although it is almost certainly doomed to fail in a Republican-controlled Congress.

Now in Arizona, a state which voted for Trump, activists are trying to overturn that by pushing the state’s members of the Electoral College to vote for someone other than Trump. The 11 members were chosen by the state Republican Party and are scheduled to assemble on Dec. 19 to cast their votes.

The Arizona Republic reports that the electors are not legally required to vote for Trump despite having pledged to support the party nominee. A number of electors told The Republic that they’ve been barraged with thousands of emails, phone calls and letters urging them to break that promise.

    I live in Arizona and am embarrassed by the disregard for the Constitution these “supposed citizens” display. It could be that the protestors are really not citizens. That happens in Arizona. First and foremost WE DO NOT IGNORE THE CONSTITUTION!!!! Those who suggest that we should ignore it , really need to read American History the Debates at the Constitutional Convention the Federalist Papers and Anti-Federalist Papers before they ridicule others.

    What did I hear before from hrc supporters/democrats to Mr/President Elect Trump: The electoral vote is very straight up/honest and you should accept the results even if it is against you (or similar BS). Now that hrc lost BIG with the electoral vote, they are whining just like lost puppy DOGS. Feed them “humble pie” and let them eat that, losers.

    Thank God for our Constitutional Republic and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers in giving it to us for all posterity. Don’t be intimidated by a bunch of Communist sore losers BECAUSE of it. Arizona wants Trump, PERIOD, as does America. We do NOT want another Clinton!
