Harvard law professor and progressive activist Larry Lessig has announced that he is teaming up with a California-based law firm to offer “free and confidential” legal services to any members of the Electoral College who will vote against President-elect Donald Trump in violation of state law.
Lessig launched his project after one Republican elector, Chris Suprun of Texas, published a news-making op-ed in the New York Times announcing his intentions not to vote for Trump when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 19 to formally elect the president.
Lessig’s movement seems to be gaining some momentum, even if it is a long shot. On Tuesday, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Elizabeth Williamson citing Republican insiders saying there are other quiet “faithless electors” like Suprun plotting to vote against Trump. Still, Williamson, a Times editorial writer who specializes in national politics, admitted the chances of the effort succeeding, amount to a “moon shot.”
Lessig served on the boards of numerous nonprofit’s advocating so-called net neutrality, including Public Knowledge, Free Press and the Sunlight Foundation. All three are funded by George Soros.
SOROS IS SO INTENT ON GETTING RID OF TRUMP THAT IT’S IMPOSSIBLE FOR US NOT TO BELIEVE THAT “WE THE PEOPLE” CHOSE THE RIGHT MAN TO LEAD US FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS.
