Jane Lynch a Member of the Arizona Republican Electoral College Goes Rogue

Mrs. Lynch has always been perceived as a stanch Republican and was appointed to be a member of the prestigious Arizona Republican Electoral College by AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham and signed an agreement she would cast her vote for the nominee.

Lynch, who has attended eight national Republican conventions and supported Ronald Reagan over Gerald Ford in 1976, noted that there’s an increasing likelihood that Trump will lose her state to Hillary Clinton, which means a separate set of Democratic electors would be tapped instead.
“Bill Clinton did win Arizona in 1996,” she noted. “So it’s not too far-fetched that Mrs. Clinton might win Arizona.”
Sounds like she's rooting for a Clinton win in Arizona again.

If Mrs. Lynch doesn’t like the fact that she will be casting her Electoral College vote for Trump she can always resign.
