Lady Gaga, Pink, Sia & More Encourage Fans to Join Effort to Deny Donald Trump the Presidency
They're petitioning the Electoral College electors to go against their states' votes.
The effort is attached to a petition with more than 3.1 million signatures at publishing asking the electors of the Electoral College to reject how their states voted on Dec. 19 and instead vote for Hillary Clinton.
Gaga posted to Twitter, "If you feel scared about the current state of American politics and Whitehouse sign this petition."
The petition argues that "Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic."
It argues that while Trump won the electoral vote, Clinton's expected victory of the popular vote by more than 2 million votes and more than 1.5 percentage points deserves the presidency. And it explains how that might be possible, albeit a long shot.
Though electors (who are typically regular people) rarely differ from their state's voting, there is no federal law that requires them to do so.
