Electoral College Votes for Biden
Biden wins again.
No surprises, no faithless electors (unlike in 2016, when Trump actually only won 304 EVs as two Republican electors did not vote as the voters in their state’s voters directed). So, Biden won the popular vote, numerous recounts, the electoral vote, and the new to 2020 stage of the competition, the multiple lawsuits challenge.
But, of course, he still hasn’t been officially elected because the official count won’t take place until January 6, 2021, before a joint session of Congress (where a few last-ditch efforts at subverting democracy may yet await).
Do our institutions rock, or what?
Meanwhile, the circus is still in session:
Worse, the threats of violence are increasing.
Via the AZ Republic: Fake electors try to deliver Arizona’s 11 votes for Trump.
The 11 electors actually chosen by Arizona voters last month — meeting in an unpublicized location because of security concerns over their task — cast their votes Monday for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, formalizing the Democrats’ victory nationally and in the state.
Over the weekend, state law enforcement advised lawmakers to close the Michigan State Capitol and legislative buildings due to “credible threats of violence,” a spokesperson for state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey told The Detroit Free Press.
It is foolish to think that if you tell people who believe the Second Amendment exists to protect against tyranny that the election was stolen that some of them won’t make threats or act in a violent fashion. Like most autocrats, Trump cares only about himself and cares not one whit for what he is stirring up.
