Democrats Introduce Bill to Eliminate the Electoral College Because They Refuse to Face the Fact That Clinton Lost Because She’s Awful
This would be an unmitigated disaster with California and New York essentially deciding the next several Presidents, and taking away the wisdom of the founding fathers that each state has a voice in our election process and each vote matters. -W.E.
Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen refuses to face that fact that Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because she is awful and has now introduced a bill to eliminate the electoral college all together — instead of figuring out how his party could do better next time.
Cohen also introduced a bill that will prevent presidents from pardoning themselves or their family members.
Bill Clinton famously pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, for drug charges before he left the White House. His brother was charged with drunk driving and disorderly conduct less than a year after the pardon.
“In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College. Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President,” Cohen wrote in a statement.
Cohen wasn’t the only vengeful representative not wasting any time before making petulant attention grabbing moves on the first day.
Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) also introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump on the first day of the 116th Congress, “filing them as his first order of business in the new, Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.”
