If there was no Electoral College, would the Republican Party be finished?

@nimh,
Notwithstanding all of your humble "I have no idea" assertions, nimh, you've convinced me that you're some kind of bottom-feeder. That's seems like a pretty exhaustive legal analysis that requires a fair amount of research and perspicacity.

I suspect Trump's main question will simply be "Yeah, well, what are ya gunna do about it, cowboy?"

For what it's worth, Trump himself is refusing to take a salary. And he could obviously afford to pay a good salary to anyone he wanted to do anything he wanted. Not that his son-in-law needs any salary, either, of course.

I would guess that most courts would find that these "anti-nepotism" laws are designed to keep relatives off of the public tit. Beyond that, who really cares?

Ha! No. Three news articles and a Quora thread.

Pretty much. Or find some kind of apparently easy-to-find loophole.
