Fox News host Mark Levin on Thursday demanded that Republican legislatures in states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin overrule the will of their states’ voters to put President Donald Trump back in the White House.
“REMINDER TO THE REPUBLICAN STATE LEGISLATURES, YOU HAVE THE FINAL SAY OVER THE CHOOSING OF ELECTORS, NOT ANY BOARD OF ELECTIONS, SECRETARY OF STATE, GOVERNOR, OR EVEN COURT,” he wrote in an all-caps Twitter screed. “YOU HAVE THE FINAL SAY — ARTICLE II OF THE FED CONSTITUTION. SO, GET READY TO DO YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY.”
Although the state legislatures in theory could try to install their own electors to defy their states’ popular vote results, such a move has never been attempted before since it would very likely lead to a complete breakdown in the legitimacy of the American government.
