Rep.Cortez Calls Electoral College a Racist Scam; Says It Is Unfair to Black, Hispanic, Asian Voters

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says the Electoral College is a racist "scam" that should be abolished, the Washington Times website reports today (August 22, 2019).

Cortez cited a March "New York" magazine article that said black, Hispanic, and Asian-American voters are underrepresented by the Electoral College compared with white Americans.

She insisted that due to several racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College weighs white voters over voters of color.

She added that a "one person, one vote" system should be used where all votes are counted equally.
