Anti-Trump effort, spark of the Electoral College-drama in Colorado

DENVER – An effort to block a Republican President, Donald Trump has led to a rowdy Electoral College vote Monday in the Democratic Colorado, where the left-oriented activists huddled at a public foyer, and called out in nine electors, to stop to try and trump.

The ruckus led to a last-minute court order and the removal of an elector, and took an oath to support the winner of the public vote, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

A few moments after the swearing-in, he had filled out in support of Clinton, the 24-year-old Michael Baca of Denver to vote for Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich. It was to try a gambit to block Trump needed votes from the receipt of the 270 electoral votes to win the White house.

Baca, who wore a yellow T-shirt advertises Democratic Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders, and the slogan “enough Is enough” quiet as Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams called for its replacement by another elector.

Baca had previously require that objections to the oath language to support him, Clinton, although a last-minute legal challenge to the oath failed, and a state judge reaffirmed the oath legal.

Alternative elector Celeste Landry of Boulder was then sworn in and cast their ballot for Clinton on the importance of a Democrat winning all of the nine electoral votes of Colorado.

During the entire public process, about 200 protesters anti-Trump slogans and called, and called for the election of men, the “voice of your conscience!” To terminate some cried with Williams. The Secretary of state, a Republican, gave no answer.

Baca, first time, the elector, could face perjury charges for pledging to support Clinton, but then not voting for you. Williams said that the decision of a Prosecutor, and Baca left the Capitol on his own. Baca got handshakes and back-slaps in the face of anti-Trump protesters, the crowded halls.

Baca was tried by a small group of electors to convince Republican electors to choose to throw Kasich or any other Republicans in the presidential election in the U.S. House, something that was all that shot in a long time.

“We’ll see what happens at the end of the day,” Baca said after the vote, Yes, as it was even less likely that Trump would not prevail.

Trump won 306 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232 in the Nov. 8 choice.
