There’s some very good stuff in this thread, but I won’t post them all. The thesis is: Trump is good at stirring chaos, not so good at actually accomplishing anything. Haven’t we learned that by now?A few weeks ago, a theory that Trump could steal the election in this manner made the rounds. For this to happen, a string of very unlikely and highly improbable things would have to happen.— Teri Kanefield (@Teri_Kanefield) September 23, 2020
The story died down.
The press right now is very bad for Trump.
“Cui bono?,” is always the right question to start with.I'm pretty sure everyone knows Trump would cheat, lie, steal, and even let 200K people die if he thought it would help him win.— Teri Kanefield (@Teri_Kanefield) September 23, 2020
There are several ways to respond to this story, but we have to begin by wondering why the "legal advisor" wants us to have this information.
(7) The Supreme Court along with multiple state legislatures would have to be willing to basically install a dictator.— Teri Kanefield (@Teri_Kanefield) September 23, 2020
(8) Remember what @stuartpstevens said⤵️ They would be putting themselves forever at Trump's mercy. pic.twitter.com/MgfrdPpCHs
(9) In a close election, like 2000, where the election comes down to a few thousand votes, something like this might work.— Teri Kanefield (@Teri_Kanefield) September 23, 2020
(10) We're looking at an election in which Trump loses the popular vote by upwards of 7 percentage points. . .
Let's not pretend that we are at the mercy of Trump, or that we give two hoots about whether he will "respect" the results of the election.— Teri Kanefield (@Teri_Kanefield) September 23, 2020

In PA, the GOP controlled legislature can’t appoint its own electors without amending the PA electoral code, which Dem Gov Wolf would veto, & the GOP lacks sufficient votes to overcome his veto. Same in MI & WI.
