I think you're really getting at/asking the same things I am wondering about.Here's the question and the thought exercise: putting aside laws and lawsuits and the constitution (because when you shoot the moon and try for an overthrow, you're not abiding by any laws or any courts), is there a real mechanism for doing these things? Again, regardles of the law? Is there a way to get faithless electors in place--human beings who will go to wherever the EC meets and be in a position to cast illegitimate ballots? If not, you have to wonder whether this whole ploy is a diversionary or delay tactic for something else.
I'm not going to say that what they're trying to accomplish is impossible, because nobody has stopped these people yet, but my gut tells me that their measures are going to have to get a whole lot more desperate and drastic to get this thing over the top.
What is the actual process for selecting an elector? What possible roadblocks are there for "blocking" the selection someone you suspect will be faithless?
If you're the GOP controlled state legislature in GA, PA, WI, etc. and you know ol' Johnny 2-incher would be happy to cast an electoral college vote for Trump even though he lost the state's popular vote ..... and there are absolutely no consequences of significance for Johnny to do so ......... what can go wrong, from your perspective in selecting him?
You're probably not going to get voted out, you're probably in a safe district anyway. The law can't really touch you, either in your official capacity or you personally. You were just doing what the law says you are to do and you didn't go against the law.
