Lessig Offers Free Help to Electors Wanting to Vote Against Trump: Report
Prominent Harvard law professor Larry Lessig said this week that he will help any members of the Electoral College that want to get out of voting for President-elect Donald Trump.
The Hill reports:
Lessig said “The Electors Trust” will provide free legal help to electors looking to vote against Trump, but who may live in states where that may be illegal.
The group will also help electors strategize and coordinate to determine whether they have enough support to stop a Trump presidency.
“It makes no sense to be elector number five who comes out against Trump, but it might make sense to be elector 38,” Lessig told Politico.
On Monday evening, a Republican elector from Texas announced in a New York Times op-ed that he would vote against Trump when the Electoral College casts its official vote for president Dec. 19.
