Even the commies were afraid to go there. It would negate even having elections.

Next we need them to forbid States demanding their electors ignore locally cast votes in favor of the national popular vote.

Not necessarily. Remember their hots for giving all EC votes for the guy with the most votes nationally.

Three Washington State Electors who were each fined $1,000 for not voting as pledged.

Agreed. That is one of the biggest electoral issues coming down the pipe.

I find the concept itself repugnant in its conception, besides being corrosive and destructive to the Republic.

How does that work?

How does an elector prove faithlessness?

If electors prove faithlessness by their vote when the Electoral College votes, must there be a redo of the Electoral College vote and if so, how does that work?

If the Electors have to vote in line with the vote of their State, what’s the point of the Electoral college?

I didn’t see any more.

It costs MILLIONS, sometimes TENS Of MILLIONS to get cases to the level of a SCOTUS ruling.

Who funded this attempt at legalized treason?

So how does this affect the National Popular Vote movement that binds the casting of a state's electoral vote to the results of the national popular vote using state compacts?

Agree on the Washington case (fining), but disagree with the the Colorado case (removal).

“Next we need them to forbid States demanding their electors ignore locally cast votes in favor of the national popular vote.”

There is nothing in the Constitution that forbids the states from directing the electors how to vote.
