A re-vote for tainted elec­tion

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Peter Drobeck,

With the rev­e­la­tion that Vladimir Putin and the Rus­sian govern­ment have in­ter­fered sub­stan­tially in the U.S. elec­tion, it is clear that our foun­da­tion for democ­racy has been breached and the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is not valid.

This is un­prece­dented in Amer­i­can his­tory and calls for un­prece­dented ac­tions. There is only one fair al­ter­na­tive — to call for new and fair elec­tions. There is no clear con­sti­tu­tional path­way for this, but it should be done be­fore Don­ald Trump and Putin come to power in Amer­ica.

I urge all the elec­tors in the Elec­toral Col­lege to refuse to cast a vote un­til a new elec­tion is called and com­pleted.
