      LANSING, Mich. (Reuters) – Democrat Joe Biden on Monday won the state-by-state Electoral College vote that formally determines the U.S. presidency, all but ending President Donald Trump’s floundering campaign to overturn his loss in the Nov. 3 election.

      California, the most populous state, delivered its 55 electoral votes to Biden on Monday afternoon, officially putting the former vice president over the 270 votes needed to secure the White House. Based on November’s results, Biden earned 306 Electoral College votes to the Republican Trump’s 232.

      Earlier in the day, electors in several major battleground states where Trump has unsuccessfully sought to reverse the outcome – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – also voted for Biden, who is set to take office on Jan. 20 alongside running mate Kamala Harris.

      Traditionally a formality, the Electoral College vote – set for Monday by federal law – assumed outsized significance because of Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud.

      This group of people from Arizona posed as electors and submitted a fake certificate of something or other. I think it’s a coy of the real certificate, so they might be in some trouble. I assume everyone will just be so happy to leave this in the past that they will ignore shenanigans like this. There’s probably no point in prosecuting a group of drunk real estate agents.

        Submitting fraudulent electoral votes is potentially much higher impact than a fraudulent citizen’s vote.  It is important to demonstrate that fraud isn’t taken lightly, or we’ll slip into:

        • Losing side makes accusations of fraud
        • Winning side ignores them
        • Losers attempt to outdo the perceived fraud until they win.
        • Lather, rinse, and repeat.

          …these idiots were only joking!

          Is it out of bounds to say, “I wish Trump were vanquished from the Earth?”
