The Most Democracy Money Can Buy

every vote counts
Who is the PEOTUS -- the President-Elect of the United States? To find out, your LakeCountyEye asked Dr. I.M. Bhatschidtkhrazzi, visiting Trump University Professor at the College of Lake County.

"Ya", said Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "This election is tighter than a strip-mall scalp reduction job."

It seemed to your LakeCountyEye that things are looking up for Joe Biden.

"Donald Trump may be down", sniffed Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi, "but don't count him out."

Your LakeCountyEye noted the red flag.  Would Trump order the Supreme Court to throw the election in his favor?

"Don't make me laugh." chortled Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "They ran that crude trick back in 2000. No, Trump is going to win in the Electoral College."

The Electoral College?

"The Electoral College." replied Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "The voters don't vote for the President. State electors vote for the President."

Your LakeCountyEye did not follow.  Won't the electors vote for Biden?

"Yes, under ordinary circumstances. But this is an unordinary President." smiled Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "In most states, Presdential electors can vote for any candidate they want. Regardless of how their state voted. If enough electors flip for Trump, then Trump wins."

Why would any presidential elector do that? Your LakeCountyEye wanted to know.

"If you have to ask, you'll never know. You know," whispered Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "there are very wealthy people who want Trump to win."

Your LakeCountyEye was not sure where this was going.

"Some of these wealthy plutocrats wouldn't mind having a presidential elector or two in his vest pocket." explained Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "You don't have to look far to find rich people who have given tens, even hundreds of millions to political causes. Even here in Lake County."

Bribery? Your LakeCountyEye was agog. Isn't bribing a presidential elector illegal?

"Show me in the Constitution where it is illegal to buy off a Presidential elector." chuckled Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi. "Let's suppose Biden wins the minimum 270 electoral votes.  Then Trump only needs to flip two electors.  How much would that cost one of these Trump Maga-donors? $2 million? $20 million?"

Your LakeCountyEye heard enough. Did Dr. Bhatschidtkhrazzi have any parting advice?

"Tell your Operatives not to terminate their Mar-a-Lago memberships just yet."

What Lake County, Illinois residents and gazillionairres
1. have an interest in a neighboring state where the majority of voters voted for President Diaperload’s challenger
2. have the trackrecord for donating millions upon millions to President Diaperload and his party and
3. could actually afford the enormous amount necessary to try to bribe an electoral voter to do such a disgusting, unAmerican act: disenfranchising voters of their power and superseding their votes to alter an election?

Hint: The neighboring state is Wisconsin, and they love us so much they financed and ‘gifted’ our revival CDs to employees. Gifting our bad music does not equate to morality or the American way, sad to say.

I do not remember the MEGA donors of Highland Park approving Hall and Oates’ songs played at Biden’s soirée last night. Can we get Rudy to file another lawsuit?
