A recent report by a bipartisan legal team states that at least 50 Electoral College member who voted for Donald Trump were ineligible.
The report states, “Among the at least 50 Republican electors that we identified, at least 16 electors lived outside the congressional districts they represented, in violation of state statutory residency requirements, and at least 34 electors held dual offices, in direct violation of statutes prohibiting dual-office holding. Votes cast in a manner inconsistent with state law violate U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1 and the 12th Amendment.”
To be elected as the President of the United States, one needs to win 270 of the 538 electoral votes. Trump won the election by a narrow margin and got 306 electoral votes, but according to the report, at least 50 of the electoral voters were ineligible to vote.
“In North Carolina, for instance, “NCGS 163-1(c) [a state law] states, ‘One presidential elector shall be nominated from each congressional district…’ Yet, we have voter registration cards showing that numerous North Carolina electors lived outside the congressional districts they represented,” the report read.
They accuse North Carolina of seating 7 illegitimate electors in the Electoral College, along with three from Texas, two from Arkansas, and one each from Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, and Oklahoma.
“Ironically, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who has issued a number of Advisory Legal Opinions on dual-office holding, was a presidential elector,” the report said.
“We are non-partisan—Democrat, Republican, and Independent,” the summary stated. “We live in different parts of the country, urban and rural, Red states and Blue states.”
