Arizona's presidential electors being harassed, urged not to cast vote for Trump

Now in Arizona, a state which voted for Trump, activists are trying to overturn that by pushing the state’s members of the Electoral College to vote for someone other than Trump. The 11 members were chosen by the state Republican Party and are scheduled to assemble on Dec. 19 to cast their votes...
“It is total harassment,” Robert Graham, an elector and chairman of the state Republican Party, said. “It started about a week ago. Now? 'Bam!' It’s hardcore.”...
Bruce Ash, another elector and Arizona’s GOP national committeeman told the Republic he had also received hundreds in what he called “an outright political maneuver.” He said many of the calls were hateful.
"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," he told the Republic.
Sharon Geise said she has received as many as 8,000 overtures, and now doesn’t even dare to answer her phone.
“Hillary’s got a great campaign going,” she said.

Выборщики от республиканской партии подверглись преследованиям со стороны демократов.
Выборщики будут выбирать президента 19 Декабря. На них обрушился шквал телефонных звонков и электронных писем. Их обзывают самыми разными словами и хотят заставить не голосовать за Трампа. Некоторые выборщики перестали отвечать на телефонные звонки.
Bruce Ash, член национального комитета республиканской партии, в числе прочих получил обвинение в антисемитизме. При том, что он сам - еврей.
Выборщик Robert Graham, глава аризонского отделения республиканской партии, назвал это хардкором.

Понятно, что выборщиками назначают партийных функционеров. Эти люди не могут просто так взять, и поменять голос. Какой смысл их преследовать? Они только озлобяться.
