Washington electors vote for Powell, Faith Spotted Eagle
Per Fox News’ Robert Shaffer
Hillary Clinton has only received 8 of the 12 electoral votes in Washington State. The unfaithful electors voted for former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell, while one voted for Faith Spotted Eagle -- a native American activist.
This makes the current tally:
1 Faith Spotted Eagle
Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman said she will work with the state attorney general and charge four unfaithful electors with a violation of Washington state civil law. The fine is up to $1000.
The law was passed in 1977 in the first session after a GOP elector voted for Ronald Reagan and not President Gerald Ford.
