May 23, 2017 Kim Dotcom statement on Seth Rich involvement in DNC leak, Panda was Seth Rich, I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics, Prepared to supply full statement to authorities

“The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.”…Fox News May 16, 2017

Kim Dotcom statement:

“I know that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC leak.

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

“He wanted to change that from the inside.”

I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.”

From Gateway Pundit.

“Breaking: ‘Complete Panic’ at Highest Levels of DNC Over Kim DotCom’s Seth Rich Announcement

Saturday, an anonymous person who works in Washington DC, alleged on 4Chan’s /pol/ subgroup that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation.

This comes after internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks.

It wasn’t the Russians.

The anonymous post released Saturday reads:

“Anons, I work in D.C.

I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.

This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.

It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”

 

In a follow up post, the anonymous individual wrote:

“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.

If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.

I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.”

Seth Rich transferred 44053 emails and 17761 attachments to Wikileaks contact Gavin MacFadyen according to federal investigator, Consistent with findings of Rod Wheeler former DC homicide detective and Rich family private investigator

“Trying desperately to explain to a bewildered, pro-Clinton grand jury why she began tape recording her young friend, Monica Lewinsky, Linda told of a Clinton “body count” — a list of many people associated with Bill Clinton who had died under mysterious circumstances, such as suicide plane crashes, mysterious illnesses, “suicides,” and even outright murder. Linda said the list she saw had 40 names on it, including Foster’s and Parks’.”…NewsMax March 24, 1999

From Fox News May 16, 2017.

“Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources

The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, investigative sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.

“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.”

Anthony Weiner search warrant states probable cause of classified information on laptop computer, Never authorized for the storage or transmission of classified or national defense information, Much less secure than Hillary server

Anthony Weiner search warrant states probable cause of classified information on laptop computer, Never authorized for the storage or transmission of classified or national defense information, Much less secure than Hillary server

“If This Story Gets Out, We Are Screwed”…Wikileaks: Doug Band to John Podesta

“James Comey’s decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director.”…Daily Mail October 30, 2016

“So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we’ve got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.”…Iowa Rep. Steve King

 

 

From the Anthony Weiner laptop computer search warrant revealed yesterday December 20, 2016.

“26. Given the information indicating that there are thousands of (redacted) emails located on the Subject Laptop — including emails, during and around (redacted) from (redacted) account as well as a (redacted) account appearing to belong to (redacted) — and the regular email correspondence between
(redacted) and Clinton, there is probable cause to believe that the Subject Laptop contains correspondence between (redacted) and Clinton (redacted). Because it has been determined by relevant original classification authorities that many emails were exchanged between (redacted) using (redacted) and/or (redacted) accounts, and Clinton that contain classified information, there is also probable cause to believe that the correspondence between them located on the Subject Laptop contains classified information which was produced by and is owned by the U.S. Government. The Subject Laptop was never authorized for the storage or transmission of classified or national defense information.”

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2016/images/12/20/weinerwarrant.pdf

It is obvious that one of the names redacted is that of Huma Abedin.

It is also obvious that this is a more serious security infraction than Hillary’s use of her private unsecured server.

Having this classified data on a laptop computer is the ultimate unsecured medium.

If Huma is responsible for this then Hillary is ultimately responsible.

From James Comey’s testimony before congress on Hillary’s use of her private email server.

“Mr. Hurd asked what was protecting the server, given that the investigation showed that at least seven chains of emails were classified at that level. “Well, not much,” Mr. Comey replied. He later acknowledged that the server was vulnerable to exposure to hostile countries.

Mr. Hurd said it was outrageous that there was not a recommendation to prosecute.

“What does it take for someone to misuse classified information and get in trouble for it?” he asked.

“It takes mishandling it and criminal intent,” Mr. Comey said.

“And so an unauthorized server in the basement is not mishandling?” Mr. Hurd said.

“Well, no, there is evidence of mishandling here,” Mr. Comey said. “This whole investigation at the end focused on: Is there sufficient evidence of intent?”

Mr. Hurd, like other Republicans, raised the question of precedent, asking whether the decision not to punish Mrs. Clinton sent a message to others in the government who handle classified information. He asked whether an employee of the F.B.I. should have a private server.

“They better not – that’s one of the reasons I’m talking about this,” Mr. Comey said. He added, “There will be discipline from termination to reprimand and everything in between for people who mishandle classified information.””

“An hour into the hearing, Mr. Comey offered a little more detail about the classified information that did pass through the server, though he did so obliquely – unable, of course, to discuss even the topic of the emails in a public hearing.

He said classified information was in “most circumstances” sent to her by her aides, but then he talked about one chain of emails that were classified as “top secret.” The State Department, at the insistence of the C.I.A., declined to release 22 emails in seven chains even in a redacted form. Mr. Comey previously said there were eight chains. According to intelligence and congressional officials, most of those, though not all, involve the C.I.A.’s secret drone strikes in Pakistan.

For the first time, Mr. Comey made it clear that Mrs. Clinton had typed an email in one of those “top secret” chains.

“In the one involving ‘top secret’ information, Secretary Clinton not only received but also sent emails that talked about the same subject,” Mr. Comey said

Representative Ron DeSantis, a Republican of Florida, asked whether it should have been obvious that the information was classified and thus not appropriate to discuss on an unclassified email system .

“Yes,” Mr. Comey said.”

http://www.nytimes.com/live/james-comey-testifies-before-congress/comey-talks-about/

Given Comey’s response regarding Hillary’s use of her private server, it will be interesting to see what comes of this very insecure laptop situation and how many heads could roll.

Zero Hedge has some more interesting observations.

ImbecilesUnite

Protesters around the country, many paid and tied to the DNC, are rallying around stupid, false assertions that Trump is a racist, some carrying KKK banners.

Ironical since he isn’t and she is well documented as being a racist.

From the National Enquirer.

“Hillary Clinton wants the most important job in the world — but the Democratic presidential candidate has spewed the same kind of foul-mouthed racist slurs that killed the careers of Hulk Hogan, Paula Deen and Mel Gibson! That’s the explosive charge from one of the Clinton’s ultimate insiders, Tracey Martin, a former travel chef who submitted to a polygraph examination to prove he is telling the truth. His shocking charges include personally hearing Hillary calling an African-American server the N-word at a fund-raising event on Feb. 1, 1996 — because her food wasn’t prepared quickly enough!

The candidate brazenly shouted the horrifying slur during an event at the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center in Washington. “It’s an HIV and AIDS clinic,” Martin said. “Hillary was hosting a tea party prior to a public appearance with Mrs. Chirac [wife of the former French president]. The Secret Service came through into a holding room where I was standing with Hillary, and at this point a tray of cookies hadn’t come out yet. Eventually an African- American gentleman came through with the cookies, and something was wrong. When he left, Hillary said: “What’s that n—-r doing in here?”

Charged Martin: “I was shocked and totally surprised — but when you’re working for the leader of the free world and in that company, you maintain your professional manner.” Speaking exclusively to The National ENQUIRER, he refused to write off the incident as an accidental slip of the tongue, and suggested the vulgar and prejudiced hatred proves she is a very different person when the cameras aren’t rolling.

“Hillary’s moves are very calculated, and she always thinks before she speaks,” he revealed. “She isn’t like most people who might say something off the cuff which they don’t mean. I believe that behind closed doors Hillary does have some racial tendencies!”

The respected D.C. chef submitted to a polygraph examination about his charges inside The ENQUIRER’s newsroom on Oct. 25, 2016 — a test conducted by certified examiner Michael Mancuso. According to Mancuso, “the subject was being truthful” when asked:”Did you witness Hillary Clinton refer to a black man as a n—-r?” and “Did you witness Hillary Clinton refer to a black man as a ‘n—-r’ while working at the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center?”

Mancuso — a member of the American Polygraph Association — concluded: “It is the professional opinion of this examiner, based on the subject’s reactions to the relevant test questions, that the subject was being truthful regarding the above-mentioned issues.””

Hillary’s Racist N-Word Rant: Private Chef Tells All

From Newsmax via Citizen News July 17, 2000.

“Former Arkansas State Trooper Larry Patterson, who was bodyguard to Bill and Hillary Clinton from 1986 to 1993, said he heard the first lady utter anti-Jewish epithets between 10 and 20 times over the course of his six years at the Arkansas governor’s mansion.”

“The topic turned to slurs against African-Americans after Hannity played a police surveillance tape where first brother Roger Clinton used the “N” word four times to refer to blacks within a 20-second clip.

HANNITY: Did you ever hear Bill or Hillary use the “N” word?

PATTERSON: Certainly, certainly. They told jokes using the “N” word. Especially Bill Clinton did. And if one of the black leaders in the community, if Bill Clinton was upset with him, especially Robert “Say” McIntosh, he often used the “N” word to describe or in conversation with Mr. McIntosh. …

Earlier on Monday, another former Clinton bodyguard, L.D. Brown, told NewsMax.com that the president would regularly make derogatory comments about African-Americans in private.

“He has used the ‘N’ word before. … Bill would make snide remarks about blacks behind their backs,” Brown said.

Patterson said Hillary was no stranger to the “N” word either.

HANNITY: How many times did you hear Hillary use the “N” word?

PATTERSON: Probably six, eight, ten times. She would be upset with someone in the black community and she would use the “N” word, like, you heard they’ve got the president’s brother on tape using the “N” word. So, yeah it was used.

The former Clinton bodyguard said he knew four or five others once close to the Clintons who would be willing to corroborate claims about Bill and Hillary’s bigoted language on the record.”

Congress has Anthony Weiner emails, Iowa representative Steve King “Congress has preserved them for our access”, Do these emails prove pedophilia?, Remember the election is not over until January 6, 2017

“If This Story Gets Out, We Are Screwed”…Wikileaks: Doug Band to John Podesta

“James Comey’s decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director.”…Daily Mail October 30, 2016

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

 

 

I keep reminding you that the election is not over until January 6, 2017 when congress certifies the Electoral College votes.

The last opportunity to stop a candidate from being sworn in as president.

From the Daily Mail November 6, 2016.

“‘We’ve got our hands on all of them!’ Congressman says Republican lawmakers have their own set of Anthony Weiner’s 650,000 emails”

“An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner.

‘The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,’ Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City.

‘So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we’ve got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.’

King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

‘It’s crazy to think that this America is going to step into a world of Hillary,’ the conservative congressman said, ‘a world of Hillary with her corruption that goes so deep that we’re now at 750,000 hidden emails.’

The FBI seized Weiner’s laptop as part of a federal probe into allegationsm, first reported by DailyMail.com, that he carried on a lurid sexting relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

The machine has yielded a treasure trove of messages that include some related to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

Some of those emails could disprove Clinton’s claim under oath that she gave the State Department all of her work-related messages in 2014.

It’s unclear how members of Congress might have obtained copies of the emails from Weiner’s laptop, since they are part of an ongoing criminal investigation.

But news reports have described an atmosphere of outrage at the FBI among rank-and-file agents who believe Clinton was let off the hook after thousands of classified documents were found among the messages on her server.

King’s Capitol Hill spokeswoman did not respond to a request for clarification.”

I do not yet know who is going to “win” the general election.

What I do know is that the election is not over until January 6, 2017 when congress certifies the Electoral College votes.

Even then, a congressman by law can object.

Multiple investigations are ongoing that involve Hillary and the Clintons.

And even with the corrupt Obama Justice Dept., it is possible that unhappy FBI or NYPD may leak damaging information such as pedophilia involving the Clintons.

From Citizen Wells October 31, 2016.

Another Democrat running for the office of the Presidency and more controversy regarding their eligibility.

In 2008 it was Obama and his natural born citizen status.

Despite the lies from the mainstream media, that issue has not been resolved.

Now with Hillary Clinton, if she garners enough votes, will she survive the election process of Electoral College votes being counted and certified and inauguration without being disqualified due to arrest and or indictment?

Here is a good description of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

http://www.constitution.org/cmt/high_crimes.htm

Sadly, most Americans are uninformed on the US President election process.

The Democrats appear to like it that way.

If you don’t believe that, check out Wikileaks.

Below is some important information on how this works.

From the US Electoral College.

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

“November 8, 2016—Election Day

Registered voters cast their votes for President and Vice President. By doing so, they also help choose the electors who will represent their state in the Electoral College.

Mid-November through December 19, 2016

After the presidential election, the governor of your state prepares seven Certificates of Ascertainment. “As soon as practicable,” after the election results in your state are certified, the governor sends one of the Certificates of Ascertainment to the Archivist.

Certificates of Ascertainment should be sent to the Archivist no later than the meeting of the electors in December. However, federal law sets no penalty for missing the deadline.

The remaining six Certificates of Ascertainment are held for use at the meeting of the Electors in December.

December 13, 2016

States must make final decisions in any controversies over the appointment of their electors at least six days before the meeting of the Electors. This is so their electoral votes will be presumed valid when presented to Congress.

Decisions by states’ courts are conclusive, if decided under laws enacted before Election Day.

December 19, 2016

The Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six “Certificates of Vote,” which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment.

The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote. These are distributed immediately as follows:

  • one set to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) for the official count of the electoral votes in January;
  • two packages to the Secretary of State in the state where the electors met—one is an archival set that becomes part of the public record of the Secretary of State’s office and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes;
  • two packages to the Archivist—one is an archival set that becomes part of the permanent collection at the National Archives and Records Administration and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; and
  • one set to the presiding judge in the district where the Electors met—this is also a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.

December 28, 2016

Electoral votes (the Certificates of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the electors. States face no legal penalty for failure to comply.

If votes are lost or delayed, the Archivist may take extraordinary measures to retrieve duplicate originals.

On or Before January 3, 2017

The Archivist and/or representatives from the Office of the Federal Register meet with the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House in late December or early January. This is, in part, a ceremonial occasion. Informal meetings may take place earlier.

January 6, 2017

The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes. Congress may pass a law to change this date.

The Vice President, as President of the Senate, presides over the count and announces the results of the Electoral College vote. The President of the Senate then declares which persons, if any, have been elected President and Vice President of the United States.

If a State submits conflicting sets of electoral votes to Congress, the two Houses acting concurrently may accept or reject the votes. If they do not concur, the votes of the electors certified by the Governor of the State on the Certificate of Ascertainment would be counted in Congress.

If no Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment to the Constitution provides for the House of Representatives to decide the Presidential election. If necessary the House would elect the President by majority vote, choosing from the three candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each state having one vote.

If no Vice Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment provides for the Senate to elect the Vice President. If necessary, the Senate would elect the Vice President by majority vote, choosing from the two candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each Senator having one vote.

If any objections to the Electoral College vote are made, they must be submitted in writing and be signed by at least one member of the House and one Senator. If objections are presented, the House and Senate withdraw to their respective chambers to consider their merits under procedures set out in federal law.

January 20, 2017 at Noon—Inauguration Day

The President-elect takes the Oath of Office and becomes the President of the United States.”

https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/key-dates.html

AMENDMENT XX

“Section 1. The terms of the President and Vice President shall
end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators
and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January,
of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article
had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall
then begin.

Section 2. The Congress shall assemble at least once in every
year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3d day of
January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.

Section 3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of
the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice
President elect shall become President. If a President shall not
have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his
term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then
the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President
shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the
case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect
shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President,
or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and
such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice
President shall have qualified.”

“ELECTORAL COLLEGE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q: What is the Electoral College?:

A: The Electoral College was established by the founding fathers
as a compromise between election of the president by Congress and
election by popular vote. The people of the United States vote for
the electors who then vote for the President. Read more

Q: Frequently asked questions:

A: Read more here

Q: Why did the Founding Fathers create the Electoral College?:

A:  The Founding Father’s intent

Here is a quote by Alexander Hamilton who, like many of the founding
fathers, was “afraid a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come
to power.” Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers:

“It was equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made
by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station,
and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a
judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were
proper to govern their choice. A small number of persons, selected by
their fellow-citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to
possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated
investigations. It was also peculiarly desirable to afford as little
opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder. This evil was not least
to be dreaded in the election of a magistrate, who was to have so
important an agency in the administration of the government as the
President of the United States. But the precautions which have been so
happily concerted in the system under consideration, promise an
effectual security against this mischief.”

Q: What are the state laws governing Electors?:

A: List of states and restrictions on Electors

Q: What are so called “Faithless Electors”?:

A: “The Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require
that electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore,
political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the
parties’ nominees. Some State laws provide that so-called “faithless
electors” may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting
an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme
Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges
and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under
the Constitution. No elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to
vote as pledged.” Read more here

The US Supreme Court Obviously has not given Electors the option to
violate the US Constitution. Therefore, obviously, if the presidential
candidate is qualified, party pledges and state laws are permissable.

Q: What must an Elector be aware of when voting for a presidential candidate?:

 A: The following are important considerations when casting a vote. Voting
as instructed by a political party, another person, or a state law in
conflict with the US Constitution or Federal Election Laws is a serious
matter. Those not voting in accordance with higher laws are subject to
prosecution and may be guilty of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

UNITED STATES ELECTION LAW

“The following provisions of law governing Presidential Elections are contained in Chapter 1 of Title 3, United States Code (62 Stat. 672, as amended):”

“§ 8.   The electors shall vote for President and Vice President, respectively, in the manner directed by the Constitution.”

ARE ELECTORS REQUIRED TO VOTE ACCORDING TO POPULAR VOTE?

“There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires
electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in
their States. Some States, however, require electors to cast their
votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two
categories—electors bound by State law and those bound by pledges
to political parties.”   (From US National Archives)

SO CALLED “FAITHLESS ELECTORS”

“It turns out there is no federal law that requires an elector to
vote according to their pledge (to their respective party). And so,
more than a few electors have cast their votes without following the
popular vote or their party. These electors are called “faithless
electors.”

In response to these faithless electors’ actions, several states
have created laws to enforce an elector’s pledge to his or her party
vote or the popular vote. Some states even go the extra step to
assess a misdemeanor charge and a fine to such actions. For example,
the state of North Carolina charges a fine of $10,000 to faithless
electors.

It’s important to note, that although these states have created these
laws, a large number of scholars believe that such state-level laws
hold no true bearing and would not survive constitutional challenge.”

STATE LAW EXAMPLE: PENNSYLVANIA

Ҥ 3192. Meeting of electors; duties.
The electors chosen, as aforesaid, shall assemble at the seat
of government of this Commonwealth, at 12 o’clock noon of the
day which is, or may be, directed by the Congress of the United
States, and shall then and there perform the duties enjoined upon
them by the Constitution and laws of the United States
.”

“The mysteries of the Electoral College has enabled Pennsylvania
to play an unusually major role in determining who is President.
In 1796, Thomas Jefferson defeated John Adams in Pennsylvania’s
popular election by only 62 votes, but the Pennsylvania electors
gave Jefferson 14 votes and Adams 1, though Adams did win the
Electoral vote, 71 to 68.” Read more here
