While the media is focusing on the single Trump elector who says that he will not vote for Trump, what about all the faithless Clinton Electors?
ORIGINAL: Before the election two Clinton Electors refused to support Hillary Clinton. All the focus is now on Trump elector, Christopher Suprun. From Vox on November 6th:
Robert Satiacum, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, the Seattle Times that he will refuse to support Clinton no matter what. A second elector from Washington state, Bret Chiafalo, is saying that he may or may not follow his state’s results.
“No, no, no on Hillary. Absolutely not. No way,” said Satiacum in a telephone interview with the newspaper, which reached him as he was protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. “I hope it comes down to a swing vote and it’s me. ... Good. She ain’t getting it. Maybe it’ll wake this country up.”
Satiacum and Chiafalo are Democratic elector candidates, meaning they’ll be responsible for casting two Electoral College votes for Washington if Clinton wins the state. While they could face criminal charges for defying the state’s election results, Satiacum and Chiafalo can still, bizarrely, use their Electoral College votes to support whomever they personally choose. . . .More recently, P. Bret Chiafalo, has reiterated his opposition to Clinton. From Politico:
P. Bret Chiafalo, a Washington State elector who has already declared his opposition to Hillary ClintonA third Democrat elector from Washington state has made a similar pledge: Levi Guerra
Polly Baca, a former state senator from Colorado, . . . . Bob Nemanich, a high school math teacher from Colorado Springs, Jerad Sutton of Greeley, also a math teacher, and Micheal Baca, a 24-year-old grad student who is not related to Polly Baca. . . . . .
