The cheating cheaters of the Republican Party

First it was Pennsylvania. Now it's Virginia Republicans with plans to game the electoral college system to end winner-take-all electoral votes so as to game the system for Republicans.

There's a simple and fair solution. One man/one vote. Elect the president by popular vote. The sanctimonious types who liked to bray about the beauties of the electoral college system when it worked in their favor should shut their pie holes in the face of this scumbaggery. Bet they won't support it in the South, where solid Republican victories could be watered down by a number of congressional districts.
