Profiles In Courage

The Electoral College vote is in:

After numerous challenges sprang up in his path, including a bitterly divisive election and attempts at recounts in three battleground states, President-elect Donald Trump finally cleared his last hurdle to the White House Monday.

The U.S. Electoral College officially punched his ticket on Monday, submitting and certifying the 270 votes needed to hand him the presidency.

It turns out there were six faithless electors.  Four were Democrats and two were Republicans.  Under threats and harassment, 532 of 538 of our fellow citizens performed their duty.  We thank all of them for their service but especially the Republicans who were subject to the vast majority of the negative behavior.  Unlike our military personnel, they had no reason to expect they would be subject to such behavior.  Well done citizens.
