Arizona Jewish Elector Accused of Anti-Semitism For Voting Trump

One of the genius ideas that the left has come up with for stopping Trump involves harassing members of the Electoral College in target states and convincing them to hijack the election. In a surefire move, the contact information of electors was distributed online resulting in large scale harassment. There have been reports of this happening in Idaho. Now it's taking place in Arizona.

Robert Graham, chairman of the state Republican Party and an elector, said the emails are mostly coming from out of state and appear to be part of a coordinated effort to try to deny Trump the presidency by swaying enough electors to back anyone but him.

Similar efforts are underway to encourage "unfaithful electors" in states across the U.S. to oppose Trump.

"It is total harassment," said Graham, who estimates he has received about 1,700 such emails and letters. "It started about a week ago. Now? Bam. It's hardcore."

And it gets more ridiculous.

Bruce Ash, Arizona's GOP national committeeman, said he received more than 300 emails Thursday.

He said the effort is "an outright political maneuver," citing "clone emails." In some instances, when he deletes one, 10 or 15 more flood into his inbox.

He said he has sent images of the emails to the state party's attorneys. He believes the emails amount to an attempt to suppress votes for Trump.

Ash declined to share any of the emails but described them: "They demonize me, they call me a homophobic, an isolationist, a bigot, a misogynist, and an anti-Semite, which is interesting because I'm Jewish."

You don't expect the left to make any sense, do you. And the left's sudden concern about anti-Semitism doesn't prevent it from championing Keith Ellison for DNC chair.

Sharon Geise, an elector from Mesa, said the emails have also flooded her inbox. She estimates she has received 8,000. Many of them are similar.

"Hillary's got a great campaign going," she said. "It's the same thing, pretty much. Basically: Vote for Hillary Clinton. It's bizarre. I don't dare answer my phone.

] Geise said 12 letters urging her to back anyone but Trump arrived at her home Thursday.
"She has to stop all of this," Geise said of Clinton. "This is ridiculous."

That's okay. Sharon is probably just a misogynist.
