“Can Pence Throw out votes?”
No. The Constitution says Pence opens all certified votes and then announces them, and asks for objections.

That's it.

2/ #Uber, when it started, was clearly illegal and its expansion smashed through all the regulations. Just like organized labor did in the 1930s. The industrial unions of the 1930s illegal seized property in a #sitdown strike in #Flint.

3/ When the #UAW shut down that one factory—with only a few hundred workers—all of #GM stopped. Production collapsed from 50,000 cars a month to nearly zero. All of its suppliers stopped as well. The largest corporation in America was brought to its knees.
