'Stealing the White House'
Using the Electoral
to Hijack the Presidency
Recent close presidential elections have
thrown the Electoral College into the spotlight. Could a presidential
election be hijacked in the Electoral College?
It happens in John Westin's fast-paced novel
Stealing the White House (McNeil & Richards). The incumbent President
wins the election, but the challenger – John Forrester – refuses
to give up. Soon, strange things happen to Electoral College electors:
... A writer of horror books is given a mysterious post-hypnotic suggestion
in Texas... The owner of a special effects studio in Los Angeles is murdered...
A college basketball coach in Tennessee is blackmailed.
When the Electoral College convenes, "faithless
electors" give Forrester the victory he was denied at the polls.
The nation is confused and divided. The
President sends Assistant Chief of Staff Larry Richmond and Larry's girlfriend,
Sheila, on a desperate mission to prove Forrester corrupted electors before
the challenger takes office.
The mission takes Larry and Sheila to California,
Tennessee, Texas, Colorado and finally New Mexico, where Larry manages
to swipe Forrester's personal laptop computer. But Forrester is scheduled
to assume the presidency in a few hours. Does the laptop hold the data
that will prove Forrester corrupted the electors?
Westin is also the author of The Anchor
War, The Spy Book and The Perfect Candidate. For more about his novels,
