On Tuesday, Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., continued his war against the Constitution and the Electoral College with a false claim that the Electoral College was “conceived in sin” as a way to perpetuate slavery.

“The country is different than it was when the Constitution was drafted,” he told CNN, the network that misrepresented James Madison in a propaganda effort to help the Democrats’ efforts to undermine and destroy the Constitution.

Constitution - Lot - Slavery - Cohen

“When the Constitution was drafted, a lot of it had to do with slavery,” Cohen claimed.

“The slave states wanted equal representation in the Senate because they wanted to keep slavery,” he added. “The slave states wanted to have an Electoral College to where the members that they had in Congress counted towards the vote of president, where the slaves counted as two-thirds, and in the popular vote they would count as zero. So the slaves states didn’t want a popular election because their slaves wouldn’t count towards voting and the slaves states would have less votes.”

Sin - Slavery - People - People

He wasn’t finished, however: “This is all conceived in sin and in perpetuating slavery on the American people and on the African-American people directly.”

Note to Cohen: Slavery was eliminated over 150 years ago at the cost of over 600,000 lives.
