How far will liberals go to overturn the election for Democrat Hillary Clinton?  On Monday, the Spokesman-Review reported that all four of Idaho’s electors have been harassed by liberals — many from out of state — demanding they change their Electoral College votes for Hillary Clinton.

According to Betsy Z. Russell:

Idaho’s four presidential electors say they have been getting harassing phone calls, emails and Facebook messages urging them to become “faithless electors” and not cast their votes for Donald Trump in the electoral college.

“A lot of ’em use bad, rough language,” said Layne Bangerter, one of the four electors. “Nothing I feel intimidated over. But we’re watching it very closely. They’ve got our home phone numbers, our cell numbers, our emails, our Facebook. We’re just getting an orchestrated barrage from the left.”

Idaho’s other three Trump electors are Jennifer Locke, of Coeur d’Alene, Caleb Lakey, of Kuna, and former state Sen. Melinda Smyser, R-Parma. “Caleb told me he had over 200 and something when he checked this morning,” Bangerter said.

Locke said, “It is concerning to me. It does feel like some level of intimidation.”

That’s because it is intimidation…

A post at Weasel Zippers said the intimidation is happening all over, not just in Idaho (which, by the way, is one of, if not the most, Republican state in the Union):

Various lists of electors to call were floated around the internet.

One was put out by the account, @VoteHillary2016. The admin on the account is Steve Rosinski, a former advanceman for Clinton/Gore and a rabid Clinton proponent…

The @VoteHillary2016 account doxed all the electors in a spreadsheet on Twitter (including the ones where it would be illegal) and encouraged people to call the electors, listing their addresses and their contact information.

Doxxing, for those not familiar with the term, is the unauthorized release of personal information, including home addresses, phone numbers, etc.

Weasel Zippers added:

Thus someone associated with the Hillary Clinton campaign was encouraging breaking the law to overturn the election results and throw the election to Hillary, and doxing electors on Twitter.

Once it was pointed out to @VoteHillary2016 that this was illegal, he deleted his tweet and wiped his Twitter profile so one wouldn’t see the connection to the campaign.

“The outcome of a U.S. presidential election has never been changed by faithless electors,” Russell added.

But that won’t deter the left, which — despite all the pre-election rhetoric — refuses to accept the results of the election.
