Sheryl Nuxoll, a Republican state senator from Idaho, recently joined the ranks of conservatives so deeply distraught over President Barack Obama's reelection victory that they believed they could coordinate a mass Electoral College boycott in order to deny him a second term.
A 'last chance" to have Mitt Romney as President in January (it's still not too late)....ELECTION (more.. chumly.com/n/185c26f )

According to the linked article, first written by Tea Party Nation founder and craftsman of bad ideas Judson Phillips, Obama's win could be nullified if two-thirds of the Electoral College states boycott the official selection process.
That's “really a strange and bizarre fantasy,” David Adler, a constitutional scholar and director of the Andrus Center for Public Policy at Boise State University, told the Spokesman-Review. It's also entirely incorrect, according to the Constitution. The 12th Amendment, which Phillips cites as the backbone of his proposal, refers to a quorum requirement only in cases where the House of Representatives is electing the president. Such a requirement does not exist for the Electoral College.
Ironically enough, Nuxoll accused Obama of "definitely not following (the) Constitution" in her interview with the Spokesman-Review.
