As we all know, electors in our nation’s electoral college system don’t have to vote the way their state did. Those who against the grain are known as “faithless electors,” but generally there aren’t any of them in a given election. It’s doubtful they’d want to deal with the blowback of disobeying the voters in their state.
Since Trump trounced Hillary Clinton 306-232, at least 36 electors pledged to Trump would need to vote contrary to how they’re supposed to for anything to change. That’s unlikely, but a number of electors who should be voting for Trump have publicly stated that they won’t be. It’s a symbolic gesture, as it won’t actually change anything, but that hasn’t changed people form looking into the pasts of those electors.
As it turns out, at least one unfaithful elector is unfaithful in another way too.
Here’s what Truthfeed found:
Gotnews.com is reporting a bombshell on anti-Trump elector Chris Suprun, the man refusing to vote for Trump because he was “offended” by Trump’s tweets about unfunny skits on SNL.
The biggest bombshell is coming from Gotnews.com, who claim to have uncovered information on Suprun’s including bankruptcies and supposed attempts at infidelity using the “cheating website” ashleymadison.com.
Anti-Trump Texas faithless elector Stephen Christopher “Chris” Suprun, who wrote a widely-shared op-ed in The New York Times about his decision, joined and paid for cheating website Ashley Madison in 2012, using the same address registered to his 9/11 charity, while bankrupt, likely unemployed, and married with three young kids, after he and his working wife owed over $200,000 to multiple creditors — and that’s just the start of it.
GotNews’ research into Suprun’s bizarre and unexplained flip-flop against President-elect Donald J. Trump turned up Ashley Madison data, damning bankruptcy records, and a series of P.O. boxes and what appears to be an association with a payday loan scam site.
Since turning against the decision of the people of Texas to elect Trump, Suprun also became a client of a “social justice media strategy” PR firm run by left-wing CNN commentator Van Jones.
What a guy.
By the way, why are partisan hacks even allowed to be electors in the first place? What’s the point in having a state vote Republican, if some far-left agitator can simply treat the state’s votes as a mere “suggestion” and then thwart them?
I hope his “bold stand” was worth the embarrassment.
