An Electoral College member in California has filed a lawsuit as part of an attempt to block Donald Trump’s installation as President.

Democrat Vinz Koller of California is the 10th Presidential elector to join the anti-Trump club, and is trying to overturn a law that will force him to cast his vote for Hillary Clinton because she won the popular vote in his state. A similar action was filed in Colorado days earlier.
