As a lawyer who studied our political system in college, I’m alarmed not only by the mishandling of our recent election, but also our elected state representatives and senators’ failure to grab the Electoral College backup system the Founders gave us. Smart men.

The Electoral College members do not meet in D.C. They meet in their respective states, so they will not be gathered together, to be jointly intimidated or corrupted. Granted, today our communications are so fast the separation is not as helpful.

There’s no space for a listing of the Nov. 3 election’s flaws. Aside from election flaws, the Electoral College was intended to guard against corrupted candidates, candidates “owned” by foreign countries, and inept candidates, regardless of the popular vote. No doubt exists in any objective man’s mind, that Joe Biden is owned by China and formerly, to Ukraine. A fair-minded person would also concede the legions of evidence that Biden lacks mental acuity, for a position involving the biggest chess game in the world.

I attended the StopThe Steal Rally in D.C., and four or five at our Georgia capitol. Other than democrat Vernon Jones, I’ve yet to see or hear state GOP senators and representatives call for holding committee hearings on our dire circumstances, nor for a special session for the Assembly to choose electors for President Trump.

To you GOP elected officials: You wanted your job. You have it. Now is the time to rise to the emergency. If you are incapable, then you should never have run for the job. And if you do not believe preventing Joe Biden as president and Kamala Harris as vice president is an emergency, you have revealed all we voters need to know about you.

Any lawyer that advocates an electoral college coup to subvert the will of the people should be disbarred. You are a disgrace to the legal profession and unAmerican. tRump lost. Accept it.
