Wisconsin resolution to award electoral votes to Trump


Gateway PunditThe state of Wisconsin has reportedly announced that it will introduce a resolution on Thursday morning to decertify the state’s electoral college votes and award them to President Trump.

So, the tricky parts here are: it has to pass both sides of the Wisconsin legislature (but probably does not need a governor's signature); it doesn't actually assign electors, just says the State Assembly shall take up legislation... and finally, if it happens on Thursday, it will be after Congress has had their official count (January 6th, or Wednesday). Does the timing matter here, if it's still before the 20th? I don't know. Maybe. And it wouldn't even be the timing of this resolution, but the timing of actual legislation to reassign the electors, which isn't even explicitly promised.

Even if the resolution passes, we still need to actually pass something reassigning the electors, and at least two other states to do the same for the total to change.

This is progress, but it's not the game-changer Gateway Pundit thinks it is.
