Socialist Demands Electoral College Be Abolished

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling for the elimination of the electoral college. The 28 year old candidate for a congressional seat in New York declared over the weekend the electoral college is a racist relic of the past and has to go. The avowed “Democratic Socialist” was commenting on a tweet by a writer for GQ magazine, who was complaining that the last two Republican presidents lost the popular vote but have been able to appoint four justices to the Supreme Court.

—QUOTABLE: “It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic.” -Ocasio-Cortez
