Judge Rejects Democratic Electors’ Bid To Unbind Votes As Anti-Trump ‘Political Stunt’

Two Colorado Democratic electors have lost their bid to break with the popular vote after a federal judge threw out their motion, calling it a “political stunt.”

U.S. District Court Judge Wiley Daniel rejected late Monday the request for a temporary injunction to suspend a Colorado law requiring members of the Electoral College to cast their ballots for the presidential candidate receiving the most votes.

“Part of me thinks this is really a political stunt to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president,” said Judge Daniel, appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton.

The legal challenge comes as a last-ditch bid to head off President-elect Donald Trump, who won the Nov. 8 election with 306 electors to 232 for Democrat Hillary Clinton. full story
