Democratic electoral college voter says he won’t vote for Clinton
The elector says Clinton is a “criminal” and he won’t cast his vote as required by law.
Robert Satiacum told the Associated Press Friday that Clinton “will not get my vote, period.” Satiacum, a member of the Puyallup Tribe and former Bernie Sanders supporter, said he believes Clinton has “done nothing but flip back and forth” and does not sufficiently care about Native Americans.“This is a time we all need to stand up and speak out,” he said.
Satiacum also does not plan to vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump…
Electors, however, are not constitutionally required to vote in line with the popular vote. Some states do have laws penalizing electors who deviate from the popular vote, and according to the AP, Satiacum faces a $1,000 fine for not voting for Clinton.
