Donald Trump completely humiliated himself on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show this week when the alternate slate of electors scheme got brought up. Hewitt said, “they are attempting, I think, to indict people for plans to select alternative electors on 1/6. Have you received a target letter, Mr. Preisdent?” Trump fumbled through a response, saying that he hasn’t received such a letter and that “when you look at alternate slates, that’s been done for decades and decades, many many years.” Trump is wrong on this as he is on most things. What does happen is that people get prepared to become electors if their candidate wins. What hasn’t happened before the 2020 election is a bunch of random people coming together to present themselves as electors for the candidate who lost and attempting to cast fraudulent votes on their behalf. There were so many layers of alleged criminality behind the ex-president’s efforts to overturn the race and this is just the latest one that might get Trump associates in trouble.
