13 GOP Pennsylvania Senators Introduce New Plan To Rig The Electoral College For Republicans
Earlier this year, Republican National Committee Chair urged Republican lawmakers in states “that have been consistently blue that are fully controlled red” — i.e. blue states with Republican legislatures and governors — to enact a plan rigging the Electoral College so that it would be almost impossible for a Democrat to win the White House. Under these plans, a large chunk of blue state electoral votes would be allocated to the Republican candidate even if the Democratic presidential candidate won the state as a whole. Although some state lawmakers in key blue states such as Wisconsin or Michigan endorsed versions of this plan, the election rigging plans were widely derided as exactly what they are — cheating — and soon, even top Republicans like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) or Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell wanted nothing to do with election rigging. The plans to rig the Electoral College appeared dead.
Except, that is, for Pennsylvania.

2. When Jeb/Christie wins PA, the joke will be on them as they would lose electoral votes.
Meanwhile, Hillary/Napolitano will win Texas and 9 other states now red, which will give 100% to Hillary/Napolitano.
So like always, the republicans would shoot themselves in the foot.
