Federal judge blocks Colorado electors’ attempt to flip votes to keep Trump out of the White House !

A federal judge has rejected a move by two Colorado electors who sought to get out of casting their votes for President-elect Donald Trump, the Denver Post reported on Monday.

The two electors, Polly Baca and Robert Nemanich, are among the many voices calling for an uprising, of sorts, in the Electoral College to keep Trump out of the White House.

In the case of Baca and Nemanich, who are both Democrats, they sought to encourage Republican electors nationwide to pick a third-party candidate, and offered to cast their Democratic votes for a consensus candidate, the Denver Post said.

Democrat Hillary Clinton won the state of Colorado in the presidential election.

“Though Hillary Clinton and Timothy Kaine won the majority vote in Colorado and are qualified for office, plaintiffs cannot be constitutionally compelled to vote for them,” the lawsuit states.

During a hearing in a Denver court, Judge Wiley Daniel slammed Baca and Nemanich’s lawsuit as a “a political stunt.”

Colorado’s scretary of state Wayne Williams, a Republican, also criticized the effort:

“Make no mistake, this is not some noble effort to fight some unjust or unconstitutional law; rather, this is an arrogant attempt by two faithless electors to elevate their personal desires over the entire will of the people of Colorado. And in so doing, they seek to violate Colorado law and their own pledges.”
Trump beat Clinton in the Electoral College 306 to 232. Candidates need 270 to win.
