Why The Fake Electors Are About A Lot More Than Fake Electors





https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/why-the-fake-electors-are-about-a-lot-more-than-fake-electors

So, why the fake electors?

To some, it seems like an odd entry point for the Justice Department to take into President Trumpís attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Groups of state-level GOP officials lying about who won their state in an effort to proclaim that Trump was the ďrealĒ victor.

Itís been presented as simple: a set of state-level GOP officials, lobbyists, and fundraisers who masqueraded as the real choice of voters in states that Biden won.

Of all the places to focus in the wide-ranging scheme to overturn the election, why that one?

The answer may be that thatís an overly narrow way to think about it.

The fake electors are the entry point to Trumpís various efforts to pressure state officials into throwing out Bidenís win and to turn the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress into the denial Ė and not the certification Ė of Bidenís win.

Itís not about the electors themselves. In reality, itís about the reason that they posed as electors in the first place: to support Trumpís effort to steal the election. Thatís the real meaning of the fake electors Ė itís a story about a tool that served Trump in his bid to overturn the results of the 2020 election, one that hacked open a pathway to contest the election results even after his court challenges had failed.
