Liza Passade started this petition to New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman

ACTION to AVOID TRUMP'S ELECTION: Harvard legal scholar Lawrence Lessig sees a viable court case to demand that electoral college votes be allocated proportionally, not winner take all, in THIS election. This would mean a CLINTON VICTORY.

We need New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to bring this case to the US Supreme Court.

On behalf of New York voters, we are asking Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to ask the Supreme Court to allocate the electoral votes proportionally in this election, ensuring our rights under the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.

Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig details the argument in this essay:
