High-Profile Attorneys Push for Change to Electoral College System
NBC Boston Aug 10
A group of attorneys is pushing for a change to the electoral college system.
The group includes former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, David Boies and Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig — a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate. They say the “winner take all” method used in 48 states disenfranchises millions of voters who back the losing candidate.
Boies, who represented former Vice President Al Gore in the 2000 Supreme Court recount case, is the lead attorney.
