Romney: "Madness" for Republicans to challenge Electoral College vote

“Madness,” Romney told reporters on Tuesday. “This is madness. We have a process. Recounts are appropriate. Going to the court is appropriate. Pursuing every legal avenue is appropriate. But trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness.”

Last week, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Alabama) said he planned to challenge the Electoral College vote when Congress meets to officials certify the election results after the first of the year.

“I’m doing this because in my judgment this is the worst election theft in the history of the United States. And if there was a way to determine the Electoral College outcome using only lawful votes cast by eligible American citizens, then Donald Trump won the Electoral College,” Brooks said.
