DNC Chair Tom Perez isn’t very smart. He recently claimed that the Electoral College isn’t a creation of the Constitution, which it is. Democrats are waging a campaign to get rid of the Electoral College because they want our elections to be decided by California and New York.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Tom Perez Says ‘Electoral College Is Not a Creation of the Constitution’ (It Is.)
Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated “the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution” during a Tuesday night speech.
“The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. “It doesn’t have to be there.”
The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.”
Perez has previously stated that President Donald Trump “didn’t win” last November’s election because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but he has never denied the fact that it is part of the Constitution.
