As the Hill reports, Muhammad Abdurrahman, a former Bernie Sanders delegate to the Democratic National Convention, attempted to vote for no candidate, according to The Associated Press's Kyle Potter.
Abdurrahman's vote was declared invalid and an alternate elector was appointed, allowing the state to go ahead and deliver its 10 electoral votes for Hillary Clinton. It's certainly too bad that he didn't know what he was doing and got his attempt at vote changing nullified, but in the end, it's likely better, as we really don't need to set the precedent of having lots of faithless electors, no matter who they should be voting for. I wondered whether Hillary and the DNC's screwing of the Bernie people would come back to bite them, and it looks like they almost got nipped this time. PS, That faithless elector must be a black Russian! Update: Four Hillary electors successfully vote for someone else. 4 faithless electors in Washington defect from Hillary – 3 go for Colin Powell, 1 for Faith Spotted Eagle, a Native American environmentalist. Washington and Colorado were the expected ‘Hamilton Schemers’ who failed big time. No losses for Trump so far. Karma.
