RE: Think Progress: PA Republicans To Introduce New Election-Rigging Plan
I hope there will be some legal challenges to this, and some heavy intervention from Washington in case no legal remedy is found.
States are given some latitude on choosing the way their presidential votes are tallied, and if Pennsylvania gets away with this, it's a highly dangerous precedent for taking the election away from the will of the voters.
We will be no better than Iran or Zimbabwe if this scheme is allowed to become law, and both sides know it. The difference is that the Republicans, knowing full well they have lost the confidence of the electorate, no longer care. Their motto is now "power at any price," and if abandoning any last pretense of being interested in capturing the votes of a majority is part of that price, they have just proved they are more than willing to pay it.
