“would tell us something about why human beings do science in the first place and from time to time do it very well indeed” Utah Sen Mike Lee former Utah Gov Jon Huntsman and Illinois Sen Mark Kirk were just some of the Republicans who called on Donald Trump to give up the nomination after viewing video footage showing the Republican nominee joking of his ability to sexually grope women without repercussion But their statements were requests not commandments Donald Trump in the end has the power to decide whether he remains the Republican nominee He has been publicly condemned over the last 24 hours by party’s chairman the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority leader and hundreds of other elected officials But the ball remains in his court Under Republican Party rules the Republican National Committee is empowered to fill vacancies that occur “by reason of death declination or otherwise” with the 168 members of the committee voting for a replacement There is no established procedure to remove a nominee unwillingly The meeting to replace the nominee would need to be called with at least five days notice and each state’s delegation would cast the same number of votes it was allotted at the convention in July for the replacement nominee Trump’s running-mate Indiana Gov Mike Pence would be the obvious replacement but others could also throw their hat into the ring The Democratic Party has done this before A few months before the 1972 presidential election Democratic nominee George McGovern discovered that his vice presidential nominee had had multiple bouts of depression and related hospitalization Fearing Thomas Eagleton would hurt the tickets chance in November The Democratic Party replaced him with a former ambassador Sargent Shriver Even if Trump were to step aside voluntarily his name would remain on ballots in most statesand millions of people may have already voted for him The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) requires that states distribute ballots at least 45 days before a federal election while early voting is underway in states like Iowa Virginia Wisconsin and North Carolina Replacing his name on ballots that have yet to be distributed is also problematicand perhaps insurmountable “To answer question I’ve been getting–No Trump cannot drop out & be replaced on ballot UOCAVA ballots are out early voting has begun” tweeted Marc Elias the Democratic campaign lawyer and general counsel to Hillary Clinton’s campaign In Colorado for example nominees names must be submitted to the state elected officials sixty days before election day or on September 9 In Iowa its 81 days before the electionthat was August 19 In Ohio its a full 90 days ahead of election day Historically there has been some leeway in the way the limits are applied The New Jersey nominee for the US Senate in 2002 Sen Robert Torricelli was accused of ethics violations and withdrew from the race 36 days before election day15 days past the statutory deadline Republicans objected to replacing him with another Democrat Frank Lautenberg but the New Jersey courts approved Lautenbergs name on the ticket In 1990 a Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate was replaced on his states ballot little more than a week before election day "This would be a gray area and there could be litigation" said Kay Stimson director of communications at the National Association of Secretaries of State For states where the ballots can still be changed the question of whether to make a late switch would likely be subject of litigation Then there are the complications peculiar to a presidential race Under the US Constitution a vote for a candidate goes to electors in byzantine Electoral College In many states those electors have some power to decide how they cast their ballots when the Electoral College meets in December But at least 25 states and the District of Columbia have laws binding electors to vote based on the outcome of the Nov 8 general election In some states they are only bound to vote the party nomineemeaning they could vote for the replacement But in states like Michigan they are bound to the candidate listed on the ballot In any event Trump’s withdrawal would set the GOP and the nation down an uncertain path likely ending in the court room as various state statutes are litigate by both parties"It points out the fragility of our election system and the lack of ability to deal with these kinds of issues" Rick Hasen a professor at University of Californias Irvine School of Law told

Nevertheless, After that,C. published an article by a thenlittle known law professor from Harvard "It is impossible to buy a toaster that has a one-in-five chance of bursting into flames and burning down your house but it is possible to refinance an existing home with a mortgage that has the same one-in-five chance of putting the family out on the street" read the opening words of the article Titled "Unsafe at Any Rate" it went on to propose a Financial Product Safety Commission a new federal agency to regulate the products the financial industry offers to American consumers A decade later that law professor Elizabeth Warren is the senior Senator from Massachusetts and the agency that she proposed in the article and later saw enacted by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act now known as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is under assault by the countrys leading banks and their lobbying arms I have made my own journey over the past decade In 2007 I was the co-editor of Democracy Today as the CEO of a financial firm I find myself navigating the regulatory landscape that I played a small role in bringing about Yet while my position has changed my position on the issue of financial regulation has not In fact in my present role I have come to see that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is not only good for consumers but good for the financial firms themselves whether they recognize it or not Rather than lobbying to fight consumer financial protections they should be leading the charge to implement them The financial industry is facing a dramatic crisis of distrust According to a 2016 survey only 8% of Americans said they trusted their own financial institution This distrust comes with real costs for banks as well as for their customers The percentage of Americans building assets through investments in the stock market has been falling since the year 2000 The number of Americans without the financial products that would allow them the flexibility to meet an emergency $400 expense has grown For the country the result is growing inequality of wealth and citizens under severe financial stress For the banks it means they are leaving profits on the table that they could make if people truly trusted them to meet their needs At the beginning of the last century President Theodore Roosevelt and his Administration fashioned themselves as "Trust Busters" taking on the excessive power and unconscionable practices of the eras largest corporations Today we need "Distrust Busters" and my fellow financial industry CEOs should take the lead in our own self-interest if nothing else That should start with changing our own industrys practices when it comes to unfair fees and the glut of financial products that too often do more harm than good But financial institutions large and small should also be encouraging the CFPB and common-sense regulation as a means of weeding out bad actors and unjust practices Giving Americans confidence that there were smart rules in place and watchdogs guarding their enforcement would go a long way to start rebuilding a broken sense of trust Unfortunately the suggestion that the financial industry beat the drum for regulation is likely to fall on deaf ears The financial industry made over $1 billion in campaign contributions to federal-level campaigns during the last election three times the political spending level of the second-highest industry in America It spent another billion dollars during that time lobbying Washington for regulatory relief from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as well as the Dodd-Frank Act and the Obama-era "fiduciary rule" which requires more financial advisors to put their clients interest first “This administration presumes that Americans can be trusted to decide for themselves what is best for them" wrote Labor Secretary Andrew Acosta in a recent op-ed on financial regulation But as Senator Warren pointed out in that journal article a decade ago sometimes a toaster or financial product is so defective that consumers should not be thrown back on themselves to avoid it Conversely consumers with greater confidence in toasters or financial products are more likely to purchase them In the short term a laissez-faire approach is attractive In the long run its lazy and just not fair For the financial industry working with Washington to craft smart regulations is the harder path but at this moment that we face historic levels of distrust inhibiting its growth seeking to avoid mandates to work in our clients best interests means

Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsIDEAS Marcario is CEO of Patagonia President Donald Trumps Dec 4 proclamation robs the American people of their public lands heritage The President and a handful of politicians would like you to believe that they are doing what is best by rescinding 85% of Bears Ears National Monument and nearly half of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Nothing could be further from the truth This action is unprecedented and widely unpopular It is also illegal and Patagonia will be challenging his decision in court By eliminating so much of Bears Ears National Monument the President is putting over a million acres of land at risk for permanent destruction and we arent going to just stand by Protecting public lands is a core tenet of our mission and vitally important to our industry and we feel we need to do everything in our power to protect this special place People often look at this as a states rights issue We acknowledge that people who live closest to these lands often want what is best for them like the Native American tribes near Bears Ears who are filing suit alongside us We must also acknowledge that history shows when states control public-trust land 70% is sold off and then often used for oil drilling mining and other industrial activities This also means that hunters fishers outdoorsmen and families like yours can no longer enjoy them While our complaint contains the specific legal arguments were making in challenging the Presidents illegal actions some very basic principles explain why were joining this lawsuit: To enforce the law The Property Clause of the US Constitution Article IV section 3 clause 2 vests Congress with the power to manage federal lands Through the Antiquities Act of 1906 Congress delegated a limited amount of power to the President specifically the authority to create national monuments protecting certain federal land But it did not give the President the power to undo a prior presidents monument designations It kept that power for itself To carry out our purpose as a benefit corporation Patagonia became a California benefit corporation in 2012 in order to legally enshrine our longstanding environmental and social values into the foundation of our business Our articles of incorporation require that we confront urgent environmental threats by investing our resources as a growing business into environmental nonprofits To stand with our grassroots partners Since 1985 Patagonia has supported hundreds of grassroots organizations in all 50 states fighting to protect public lands at the community level As a company we have donated more than $80 million to these groups Beginning in 2013 we joined tribal leaders and grassroots allies to advocate for the designation of Bears Ears National Monument and have worked together to defend it from the Presidents threats To defend our business Patagonias business relies directly on public lands like Indian Creek in Bears Ears which hosts world-class climbing Powered by national monuments national parks and other special public lands that draw millions of visitors a year outdoor recreation is Americas fourth-largest industry driving $887 billion in annual consumer spending and 76 million jobs according to the Outdoor Industry Association For more than a century presidents of both political parties have upheld their solemn responsibility as stewards of Americas public lands by protecting our most special wild places In every corner of the country and across the political spectrum the American people resoundingly support this tradition This is not about politics; its about protecting the places we love and keeping the great promise of this country for our children and grandchildren We wont let President Trump tear down our heritage and sell it to the highest bidder Were proud to keep fighting with everything weve got Contact us at [email protected]
