Brook Thomas: “Rule by Law Under a Flawed System to Elect a President”

In the Dec 18, 2020, New Yorker, Steve Coll notes that the outdated 1887 Law of Electoral Count enables Trump’s allies to create more havoc when the joint session of Congress meets January 6, 2021, for the official count of the electors’ votes.

Brook Thomas, Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus at UC Irvine, explains the history leading to the 1887 law and what he views as the media’s misrepresentation of that history in “Rule by Law under a Flawed System to Elect a President.”
