Hillary Clinton elector sounds alarm over state’s ‘dangerously unstable’ electoral overhaul legislation

Minnesota lawmakers are moving to make big changes to the Electoral College, a major obstacle to leftist control of the nation and the permanent Democratic Party occupation of the White House, and a radical new bill is moving closer to becoming law, a prospect that has even alarmed a former elector for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who warned of potential danger.

The proposal, a part of three bills backed by state Democrats that are currently making their way through the legislature, would overhaul election rules and change the way that the Land of 10,000 Lakes would allocate the state’s ten electoral votes that would go to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote, which has recently been the Democratic Party due to large blue states like California and New York and the clustering of left-wing voters in high-density coastal areas and major cities like Chicago and Philadelphia.

One provision contained in the bills which are included in an election omnibus package would put Minnesota into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement by states to circumvent the longstanding Electoral College practice that the nation’s founders put into place in order to prevent populous states from effectively nullifying the votes of Americans in more sparsely populated areas, a bulwark against mob rule that was accepted for nearly two and a half centuries until the bombastic billionaire outsider Donald J. Trump sprung the political upset of the century against Mrs. Clinton in 2016.

However, the potential shakeup of Minnesota’s election process was so radical that one of Clinton’s former electors spoke up to oppose the measure which was reportedly added to the omnibus before lawmakers were given a chance to properly vet it, according to Fox News.

The former Clinton elector, executive director of Democrats for the Electoral College Jasper Hendrick warned that the “NPV compact is dangerously unstable.”

“As written, the plan would use state legislative power to manipulate the Electoral College, and it relies on the same theory some supporters of President Donald Trump had after the 2020 election that legislators can ignore the will of the people in their state, take control of their presidential electoral votes, and — in the case of NPV — force them to agree with the nationwide popular vote,” he said.

“Adding confusion and chaos to our election process, NPV can take effect without a majority of states participating, but it relies on cooperation from all states,” Hendrick continued. “It could be activated or deactivated for the entire country based on the actions of just one state legislature or court.”

Trent England, the executive director of Save Our States, a group dedicated to protecting the Electoral College as it has existed, told Fox News Digital that trying “to hide the National Popular Vote bill is an admission that it doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.”

“Sponsors of NPV are trying to manipulate DFL lawmakers and force them to vote for an unvetted, unconstitutional measure hidden within an omnibus bill,” he told Fox News Digital.

According to its website, Save Our States is “dedicated to defending the Electoral College from the dangerous National Popular Vote campaign, which would nullify the Electoral College without a constitutional amendment.”

“NPV is nothing more than an attempt to give states like California more control over Minnesota’s electoral votes than voters who actually live in Minnesota,” England continued. “It would make Minnesota irrelevant in national politics, not by replacing the Electoral College, but by manipulating it.”

“NPV is a ticking time bomb, making future election disputes far more dangerous and giving judges much more power to decide election outcomes,” he added.
