He’ll have a hard time blaming illegal voters this time around.
Last month, an electoral college member announced he was resigning from his position out of refusal to vote for Donald Trump during the upcoming Texas electors meeting.
Now, it looks like another Texas elector is refusing to vote in the President-elect — and this elector would rather be faithless than unemployed!
Texas Republican Christopher Suprun, one of the 538 electors set to cast a ballot for the next POTUS on December 19, explained why he won’t be voting for Trump in an opinion piece for The New York Times.
The conservative insists that his swerve has nothing to do with Trump’s “policy disagreements” or because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote — instead, Suprun simply won’t elect someone “who shows daily he is not qualified for the office.”
Playing a significant part in Suprun’s perspective is his role as a firefighter and first responder to the 9/11 attacks, in which he remembered George W. Bush led the country “through the tragic days following the attacks.”
According to Suprun, Bush’s post 9/11 leadership — which “showed that America was a great nation” — is far removed from Trump’s many red flags that show just how unfit he is to run the country.
Citing everything from the President-elect’s lack of foreign policy experience to his tweets about Saturday Night Live, the Texas elector can’t bring himself to put a man like Trump in office, writing:
“I watch Mr. Trump fail to unite America and drive a wedge between us…For me, America is that shining city on a hill that Ronald Reagan envisioned. It has problems. It has challenges. These can be met and overcome just as our nation overcame Sept. 11.”
As for who he thinks electors should pick, Suprun suggests “an honorable and qualified man or woman such as Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.”
Well, that sort of knocks the wind out of Clinton’s sails, but every vote the crooked businessman loses is a vote regained for sanity.
Do YOU think more electors will follow suit and vote against Trump?
