Texas Republican Elector Says He Won’t Cast Ballot for Trump

A Republican member of the Electoral College from Texas said Monday that he won’t cast one of his state’s 38 electoral votes for Donald Trump because “I am here to elect a president, not a king.”

Dallas paramedic Chris Suprun previously indicated he would support Trump. But he now says the president-elect’s postelection attacks on the First Amendment and the country’s electoral process, as well as the billionaire businessman’s continued promotion of his brand and business interests overseas, changed his mind.

Texas law doesn’t mandate that electors vote according to the results of the state’s presidential election, which Trump won by nine percentage points over Hillary Clinton. Suprun and the GOP’s other electors signed pledges at the state Republican convention in Dallas this summer promising to vote for their party’s nominee, but those aren’t legally binding.

“I’m expecting backlash, but that has been par for the course this campaign. People are unhappy. They’re angry. But I’m angry, too,” said Suprun, who said that prior to changing his mind he had received hundreds of emails, letters and phone calls urging him not to support Trump.

Suprun said the Electoral College system “is fine as it currently exists.” His problem is just with its winner.

    This rectum of a wild boar should be hung for treason and contempt. Seems like his hat is too small for swollen head and brain of a grain of sand. Who’s ass is on his pencil hear? Don’t smile killery, we don’t want to see his sorry face.

  • Bob says:

    Remember when the word “pledge” meant something? Remember when “My word is my bond” actually meant something? My Daddy used to tell me that the three things that marked you as an honorable man on this earth were your word, your handshake and your signature. Like the RINO’s during the recent election this person fails in 2 of three. He gave his word and signature but, since they are not “legally binding”, they are worthless if you have no honor or conscious. Obviously, this person has neither. I would expect something like this form someone in California, New York or DC, but not Texas.

  • Anouk says:

    This traitor must be jealous of Donald Trump. I won’t call him a true American.

  • snowyriver says:

    My my — Time magazine just named Trump as person of the year. Any you won’t vote for him???

  • N.McDaniel says:

    A man’s word is as good as his bond> Your actions prove you are a man that has no bond and is not trustworthy!! DESPICABLE!!

  • Robert Early says:

    I say to Chris: Leave the state and go into hiding.

  • Larry says:

    You are not God, so do your job and vote as instructed by your voters. Serve your constitution, you jack ass.

  • John Siemens says:

    His job is to do the will of the people. He does not get to impose his will on the people of Texas.

  • justinwachin says:

    This guy isn’t happy with the winner so he is going to ignore the wishes of the people and vote for someone else? What’s the point in having an election if a handful of electors are going to ignore the results and vote for their own choice? Every state needs to pass laws that require the electors to vote based on the election results of that state. Those who violate the law should get to spend 8 years in solitary confinement in prison. From what I’ve read solitary confinement has a way of driving people crazy since they lose contact with everyone else.

    If it would have been left to me we would have had different candidates running in the general election. But, it wasn’t left to me. Americans were able to choose between Hillary, Donald and a bevy of third party candidates. If this guy can’t vote for Trump he should step aside so someone else can have that honor.

  • Jim Strong says:

    Just another RINO.

    1. dmttbt says:

      All the republicans are RINOS because what they say they stand for and what they really stand for are two completely different things, I will not leave the democrats out on this either. They are what they do not what they say and what they have done is criminal. We sent them t the store to do business and they bought the store and sent us the bill.

  • Robert Ryan says:

    I thought these people of the college electoral were suppose to be anonomyus and not known to the public. Guess I was wrong.
    Seems these electoral people want to change the outcome of the election.

  • Richard Frick says:

    How many millions did this scummedic get for supporting the islams and their attempt to destroy the infidels? Another killery soilder of fortune that would sell his soul for the weakened dollar that bislama created..

    1. msueh says:

      isn’t that supposed to be “pisslama”?

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Again, Texas continues to worry me, with the infestation of muslims and then the infestation of all the liberals from the CAL. companies pouring into the state! This state at one time was said to be the backbone of the South is slowly slipping away! This is the one state that Obama has feared from the start, but now is slowly getting it like he wants it, but thank God his time is short!

  • teaman says:

    Jackbutt, we already have a king in the WH….OBAMA THE EXECUTIVE ANUS!!

    1. Dan Danser says:

      Great post and so true. The hypocrisy of him and liberals is almost unbelievable.

  • Jose says:

    What price for treason? Apparently not much when it comes to being appointed as an electorate.

  • RuFus92 says:

    Were you an elector last 2 elections? If so did you vote to install King Obama? Do your damned duty and vote as the dictates say and quit your petty bullshit rebellion. Any true Texan who voted for Trump should tell you face to face what you are. It would probably included a description of a fly drawing pile of excrement.

  • Cal Har says:

    His job is to be a directive for the people of Texas.If he doesn’t want to do it.He should resign.

  • James in Texas says:

    Even we here in Texas can fix almost everything, except “Stupid”! If you can not stand and do the “Duty” given to you, please resign now!

  • DJTX says:

    So, did any of those hundreds of emails and phone calls offer you anything to make this decision? If not, and you don’t have this motive, I apologize, but with as much corruption as there is in the Democratic party, and government in general, it wouldn’t surprise me much to hear that money is being offered to electors to change their votes. I would say to this elector to be sure of your motives, and realize the consequences of NOT supporting Trump at this point. The only viable alternative will be Hillary, which will result in reduced freedom headed towards totalitarianism. Unless you hate guns, hate free speech, and love being micromanaged in your everyday life, I hope you’ll give this a LOT more thought!

  • ArcticGrayling says:

    How much is Soros paying him?

    Will there be a new law passed in Texas?

    1. Anouk says:

      Soros is the evil behind the curtain and should be arrested. He is the one who distribute his wealth to eliminate Donald Trump.
      God help us.

      1. dmttbt says:

        Now we have Soros and ABC network as the ones who are going to stop the people from doing the false advertisements on Facebook. Oh My My won’t that be wonderful. The two best sources of false statements in our country. Why haven’t they shut down ABC yet?

  • Mort Leith says:

    This fa660t is too ignorant to pretend to be a Conservative….

  • Linda says:

    I would say to Chris as a fellow Texan that he was appointed as an electorate to vote for the majority of the people of his state. I believe he should back the majority and vote that way because the people have spoken. I think he needs to think about giving up this privilege because Texans are behind Trump, and we feel like he is our last hope for freedom.

    1. Mort Leith says:

      Exactly,, HE is the one acting like a King by not representing The People as to whom they voted…

      1. Peter Smith says:

        No, he’s acting like a faithless POS by not living up to his DUTY as a GOP elector and supporting his candidate and the man elected by the Texas majority. And if he doesn’t like my assertion of him personally, TOUGH SH-T BUDDY! I am a fellow Texan, either cast your ballot as the people have voted or step down, we will replace your faithless -SS.

      Absolutely and if he doesn’t believe that he needs to pull his head out and act like the man he is supposed to be. Look at where politicians have got us today. Wake up man.
