Michael Moore offers to pay fines of GOP electors who vote against Trump

On 'The Kelly File,' political activist discusses new film, Flint water crisis protests

 

Michael Moore is making one more plea in order to stop President-elect Donald Trump.

The liberal filmmaker has offered to pay the fine of any Republican member of the Electoral College who abstains or votes against Trump.

The 538 Electoral College members will cast their ballots today and some states have laws in place that impose a fine on an elector voting against their constituents' choice.

Moore wrote a post on Facebook detailing his offer.

"I obviously can't and won't give you money to vote tomorrow, but if you do vote your conscience and you are punished for it, I will personally step up pay your fine which is my legal right to do," Moore wrote.

He called Trump "unstable" and "dangerous" and wrote the Republican electors should "vote your conscience" and "put country over party."

"Only 38 of you have to stand up and say, 'I love my country and I cannot in good conscience vote for a man who, whether he means to or not, may put our nation in jeopardy. I love my country more than I love this job as an elector.'"
