The movement by state legislators to claw back their constitutional power to choose Electoral College electors is gaining momentum.

A resolution proposed by lawmakers in Pennsylvania charges “numerous illegal acts” in the 2020 election have been “ignored” by the governor, secretary of state and election officials.

The lawmakers state the General Assembly “takes back and reserves the power to designate presidential electors for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the December 2020 meeting of the Electoral College and withdraws any prior statement or direction to the contrary given by the General Assembly or any other official or body.”
