The last resort for addressing election fraud

The BlazeWho determines the outcome of the presidential election in a given state? Governors? Secretaries of state or boards of election superintendents? The courts? Fox News' decision desk? Nope. The president wins a state when electors selected by state legislatures conduct a vote in their respective states on Dec. 14. Thus, ultimately, according to the Constitution, the state legislators wind up serving as the kingmakers in a disputed election.

It's a last resort because it looks frankly undemocratic for state legislatures to step in and assign their own electors. But if the elections in the remaining states are so corrupted that valid totals cannot be determined, then legislatures may need to fix it, and assigning Presidential electors may end up as the least damaging way to do so.
