Texas Republican Wants To Be News; Not Voting For Trump in Electoral College
This man wanted his name in lights for a few days. He wanted his phone to ring so he wouldn't get any sleep.

I know how these things go. I know electoral college members do not have to vote the will of the people. It’s a stinging reminder of how our government works. I am sure things were not mean to be like this, but they are.

This Texas Republican, I feel, wants to be recognized publicly for not voting for President-elect Donald Trump. He intends to be on television and interviewed by all of media. That’s where we are in this country, in 2016.

From Fox News:

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.

“I was told if we elected Donald Trump he would transform his personality into being presidential. He isn’t,” Suprun said. “I wanted him to be presidential, but since the election he hasn’t grown into our institution, he’s attacked them. I am here to elect a president, not a king.”

Another Texas Republican elector, Art Sisneros, resigned last week rather than vote for Trump. Electors will vote to replace Sisneros when they convene Dec. 19 in Austin and in state capitals across the country to vote for president.

Suprun said he was not resigning but also won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton.

I agree with this last tweeter. This man wanted his name in lights for a few days. He wanted his phone to ring so he wouldn’t get any sleep. He wanted to be able to boast how important he is. That’s his claim to fame.

I think he’s a coward.
