Louisiana Democrats trying to stop electoral college voting process. Vote 2pm todaySubmitted by LynnDear on Mon, 05/07/2012 - 12:46
Letter today from Jason Dore, Louisiana GOP, telling us that there is a vote today trying to stop the Electoral College Voting Process in Louisiana, and go to popular vote. First I heard of this.
Fellow Conservatives –
Today, the Louisiana House of Representatives will be considering the National Popular Vote Compact. The vote is expected shortly after the House convenes at 2 p.m. this afternoon. Please call your state representative and urge them to actively oppose HB 1095.
You can look up your Representative here, find their contact info here, or call the House switchboard at 225-342-6945.
Kevin Kane, President of the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, issued a simple one page paper detailing 6 reasons why the National Popular Vote Compact is not in Louisiana's best interest. To read his paper, click here.
This movement to scrap the Electoral College system as it was set up by the Founders is supported almost exclusively from left wing groups such as the Louisiana Democrat Party, Common Cause, and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Let's put a stop to this legislation today! Please call and/or email your state representative before 2 p.m.
Thank you for all that you do.
