If you’re a state senator profiled on the Colbert report, you know you’ve gone rogue. Well, Republican State Senator Dominic Pileggi, the guy who wants to allocate electoral college votes by congressional district (which would basically allow states that gerrymander to control national elections), got his 15 seconds last night. Jump to about the 3 minute mark, but watch the whole thing for a primer on why Pileggi might be proposing such legislation. Hint: If Pileggi’s plan were enacted, PA would have gone for Romney.
