One elector, Ash Khare, said he and all of the 19 others have been assigned a plainclothes state police trooper for protection.

"I'm a big boy," said Khare, an India-born engineer and a longtime Republican from Warren County, who estimates he receives 3,000 to 5,000 emails, letters, and phone calls a day from as far away as France, Germany, and Australia. "But this is stupid. Nobody is standing up and telling these people, 'Enough, knock it off.' "

"I take my job as an elector very seriously, and in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump won," said Mary Barket, a Northampton County resident and president of the Pennsylvania Federation of Republican Women. "So any argument thereafter, especially about the nature of him being a president, is not going to have an effect on me."

[Lawrence Tabas, state GOP counsel who's info was given out with electors] said most of the conversations he's had have been respectful. Others have veered off into what he would only call "nasty" territory. He would not give details.

All the electors they interviewed basically told the complainers writing, calling, etc. to go pound sand.

They may need to keep the state troopers on for a few weeks after. Some crazy people out there.

Comments to the article are entertaining, as you would expect from Philly area denizens.

Send the wifey and kids to Grandma's house and invite them all to party.

I don't need a Trooper, just immunity and for everyone else to stay out of the way. Like any of these whack jobs will do anything to an elector.

It's still just rich. They tried to pin Trump with the question about if he will accept the election results. Now they are so deranged the electors need personal police protection.

So the progressives are threatening, among other people, an Indian immigrant for doing his democratic duty. Nice.

Tell me how we're the violent, angry, dangerous ones again?

It's not terrorism when the left does it.

Maybe. I doubt even the craziest leftists actually believe that the EC will elect Queen Hillary. That's just crazy talk.

But still, I am hoping for some delicious salt.

Mind-dead sycophants that they are, they'd much rather see the fruition of having us in a gulag -- they're too narcissistic to give up on that obsession.

Having a government official(s) provide contact information for the electors should be a crime.

"Tabas said state officials this year gave out contact information for all 20 electors. In his case, that included his work and cell phones, his work email, and his home address."

Those emails and letters would be the first REAL evidence of foreigners interfering with the election.

It's been a long standing claim in GD that ALL govt employee information should be publicly provided to anyone for any reason.

Remember both times when Obama won, that electors had to receive police protection

or maybe even go into hiding?  You don't?  Me neither.

Can we have a law the makes wearing a Che Shirt within 25 feet of an Elector probable cause to shot them dead?
Link Posted: 12/18/2016 4:37:45 PM EST
Two thoughts:

1. This is exactly why so many of us carry a gun.

2. Think about what it would be like if an elector actually was harmed! How would the MSM spin that?

Well, it's tragic, but the elector brought this upon himself.  He had the chance to right this

wrong and elect Hillary.  Instead he chose literally Hitler.  That can't be allowed to stand.

If I were a delegate and I received a letter from a leftist weenie, I'd send back a photo copied picture of my ass saying pound sand. Lol
