PA alternate electors – The Epoch Times
A White House adviser, Stephen Miller, told Fox News on Monday morning that alternate groups of electors were being chosen in several states, claiming that it would lead to Trump’s reelection.
According to the U.S. Code, when the House and Senate meet, they have to look into “all the certificates and papers purporting to be certificates of the electoral votes.” Several Republican members of Congress have said they would attempt to object to the counting of the Electoral College votes for a state, which would then trigger a series of debates and votes.
Miller told Fox News that the alternate electors’ votes are designed to keep Trump’s cases in court between Dec. 14 and January.
“That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct that the ultimate state of electors be certified. The state legislatures in Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, can do the same. And likewise, Congress has that opportunity as well to do the right thing,” Miller said.

Our system is in crisis. Trump should act to restore the rule of law.
