      Republicans have ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for calling the Electoral College a racist “scam” that favors mostly white and rural states at the expense of those with large minority populations.

     The 29-year-old freshman lawmaker wants to eliminate the current system in favor of electing the president through a popular vote, which would shift power to more populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s New York.

     Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin — now much-sought-after swing states — and smaller states such as Iowa would have less of an impact on elections, as Iowa GOP Sen. Joni Ernst pointed out.

     Cortez has made many stupid statements, this one tops all the other.
