hacking, Tennessee's members of the Electoral College unanimously voted for Donald Trump on Monday at the capitol.

The formal voting event was not without disruption, however. Two outbursts from women in the gallery caused the state's Election Coordinator Mark Goins to bang his gavel and demand order.
One woman who shouted "bull****" during a short speech from one of the electors was escorted from the gallery by state troopers. ... Beth Scott Clayton Amos, one of Tennessee's electors, delivered remarks that were interrupted by one of the outbursts. She said she's received some 70,000 emails since Nov. 8, and "99.9% of them were from non-Tennesseans." .... Some had expected to see as many as 500 protesters, but less than 100 turned out.
