If the head of the Democratic Party does not know what is in the Constitution then how are we to expect any of them to know what is in the Constitution?

According to the Washington Free Beacon the Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez was giving a lecture at the Indiana University Law School and said the following:

The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution, it doesn’t have to be there.

Now Chairperson (because I would not want to call him Chairmen and offended him or anyone else in the Democratic Party) Perez, maybe you should bone up on your Constitutional knowledge before you give a lecture at a law school.

The Electoral College is in the Constitution, in fact it is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution:

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.

It was created by our Founding Leaders (again I would not want to offend anyone in the Democratic Party by saying Fathers) as a compromise between the populations of smaller states and the larger ones.

As I stated above if the head of the Democratic Party National Committee has no idea what is in the Constitution then how do we expect anyone running as a Democrat or voting for the Democrat Party to actually know.

Wonder why that party seems to have no respect or regard for the Constitution.

Chairperson Perez there are many copies of the Constitution out there, can I send you one?
