Eric Holder Talks Abolishing The Electoral College

The former Attorney General Eric Holder was a guest on Real Time with host Bill Maher and discussed that since the Electoral College benefitted the Republican party oft times, such as last week’s election in which Democratic candidate Hillary R Clinton won the Popular vote yet lost the Electoral College, it was time for it to be abolished.

Huffington Post covered the program, quoting Mr Holder to have stated:

“I’m in the process now of writing an article that says there’s a simple solution to it and we have to just abolish the electoral college, but so all right, it involves heavy lifting, let’s lift heavy, let’s do it”

He also stated that when Mr Trump said the elections were “rigged” against him that in end result it was quite the contrary, that it was rigged for him and his party’s candidates in the past and present.
