Since the 9/11 attack on the U.S consulate in Benghazi, we've been told an anti-Islam YouTube video was to blame. We know the consulate was attacked multiple times throughout 2012 and U.S Ambassador Chris Stevens had received multiple threats from al Qaeda before being killed on 9/11 with three other Americans. From the beginning the story never added up and the YouTube video excuse has been proven a complete lie, but the recent revelations of an affair between General David Petraeus and biographer Paula Broadwell may have given us the missing link to this whole thing. It isn't the affair...

The term "Faithless Electors" describes those electors who have voted against the wishes of their states. Some states have laws on the books prohibiting this, others do not. Even those states who prohibit it have various untested consequences. I do realize that the chances of this happening are almost nil, but in 1836 Virginia's 23 electors conspired to vote against the VP nominee which threw the election of the VP to the senate where he was elected anyway. For the electors to vote against their state's election would require extraordinary circumstances which I do not think we are even close to. But, technically, it is possible.
