Electors, hopefully my last post

I keep reading that even in States where they are required to conform to the will of the Electorate, the penalty for "faithlessness" is a fine. However these Electors also exist at the will of the State Assemblies and can replaced if they demonstrate an intention to be disloyal to their party and the people. This guy in Texas, for example, should just be fired and replaced by someone who does not have his head up his ass.

It occurs to me as well that as well as Republicans performed nationally at the State level, we have not been better positioned for a Constitutional Convention in a long time. I haven't looked up the numbers, but with good deal making, much is possible.
