Four Washington electors to be fined $1,000 for their vote


OLYMPIA — The secretary of state’s office said that four electors who cast their vote for someone other than Democrat Hillary Clinton will each be fined $1,000.

David Ammons, a spokesman for Secretary of State Kim Wyman told The Associated Press on Thursday that the electors will have 60 days to pay the fine, and said the office is putting together an appeals process in case of a challenge.

During last Monday’s Electoral College vote in Olympia, Clinton got eight votes, while former Secretary of State Colin Powell got three and Native American tribal elder and activist Faith Spotted Eagle got one vote.
