    Interesting opinion piece:

    To bind or not to bind? The Supreme Court’s ‘faithless elector’ decision

    https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/507152-to-bind-or-not-to-bind-the-supreme-courts-faithless-elector-decision

    …To be fair, the court recognized the difficulty of a deceased candidate — in a footnote — but did not resolve the issue. It’s an issue worth considering, however, because the problem can take so many forms. What if a candidate were to become ineligible for the presidency because of impeachment and removal from office? What if it were discovered that a candidate, believed to be a U.S. citizen, was born in a different country?

    These and other events could leave Congress in an odd position when it comes time to count the votes: If 270 or more electors were bound to cast their ballots for an ineligible candidate, then those votes could be thrown out. The Constitution’s secondary election procedure — a House contingent election — would be triggered because no candidate obtained a majority in the Electoral College. Yet by the express provisions of the Constitution, the only candidate in that secondary election would be the losing presidential candidate.

    To bring it to the present, if in the unhappy instance Joe Biden garnered the necessary 270 electoral votes, but his health failed, then the Democratic electors could not vote for Kamala Harris or some other Democratic candidate. Thus Trump would win by default. I can hear the wailing now!

    Thinking I should run to the local t-shirt shop and have a t-shirt made that reads “I can find Kosovo and Serbia on a map.”

    Pres. Trump to visit Wisconsin, three other states this weekend

    Trump will be here this Saturday ! If it’s not raining I’m going! If it’s raining likely he’ll be moved either to a hangar or a local rotunda (smallish) .
