SCOTUS BRIEF (Chiafalo v Washington)

Is the US Electoral College a real election?
Can the electors vote their conscience?
Can the States penalize them for disobedience?

And how does the Court use popular culture (Hamilton and Veep) to help explain its reasoning?

Justice Kagan is not throwing away her shot...in Virtual Legality.
