Albany Times Union calls for EC to "reject Mr. Trump"

Daily kos:
Whether it works or not, the Albany (NY) Times Union editorial board last night called for members of the Electoral College “to deny Donald Trump the presidency — as the Constitution allows and as the Founding Fathers envisioned for a candidate so antithetical to their aspirations for the nation's highest office.”

The editorial goes on to say: “Mr. Hamilton almost seems to have anticipated Mr. Trump, a rich developer and reality show host with a flair for publicity, in defending a process designed to guard against someone with ‘Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity’."


I was heartened to read this, and hope other media outlets follow suit. Read it all here: www.timesunion.com/...
