The US Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Monday that states can punish Electoral College members who refuse to support the candidate who won statewide presidential balloting.
In unanimous ruling, court says states can sanction electors who refuse to cast their vote in the Electoral College for the presidential candidate who won in their state.
“The Constitution’s text and the Nation’s history both support allowing a State to enforce an elector’s pledge to support his party’s nominee—and the state voters’ choice—for President,” Justice Kagan wrote on behalf of the court.
9 to 0 judgment at the Supreme Court upholding the rights of states to enforce electoral college rules. Ten “faithless” electors defied the popular vote in their state in 2016.
What a big win for America, the President, and the United States Constitution and her people!
