According to a new report from Alternet, more than 50 Electorates who voted for Trump were not eligible to serve as electors due to not living in the congressional district they represented or they held elective office in states legally barring dual officeholders.
That stunning finding is among the conclusions of an extensive 1,000-plus page legal briefing prepared by a bipartisan nationwide legal team for members of Congress who are being urged to object to certifying the 2016 Electoral College results on Friday.
“We have reason to believe that there are at least 50 electoral votes that were not regularly given or not lawfully certified (16 Congressional District violations and 34 Dual Office-Holder violations,” the executive summary of their “Electoral Vote Objection Packet” said. “The number could be over a hundred. We urge you to prepare written objections for January 6.”
Among the states involved are North Carolina — with seven possible illegal electors — as well as Indiana, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma.
One of the electors cited is Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi who has been closely allied with the Trump campaign and has drawn scrutiny for illegal campaign contributions from the Trump Foundation.
