Report: 'Faithless Elector' Is Changing His Story

Texas elector Christopher Suprun is getting more than his 15 minutes of fame for publicly stating he has no intention of voting for President-elect Donald Trump, even though he won the Lone Star State handily on election night.

Initially, Suprun said he was turned off by the president-elect's Twitter usage, and that as an elector, he was allowed to determine for himself if any candidate had met the qualifications of being president of the United States. By his estimation, Trump had not, so he was going to vote for someone else.

But in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Suprun apparently is now changing his story:

Suprun repeatedly cited Trump's Twitter behavior as reasons for him to overrule Texas voters and cast his electoral vote for somebody else. Trump's insulting of Saturday Night Live seemed to particularly bother the Republican elector. But what finally pushed Suprun "over the edge," he said, was something Vice President-elect Mike Pence said on Sunday—the day before Suprun announced his plan to vote for someone other than Trump in an op-ed for the New York Times.

"What probably really pushed me over the edge was Sunday on the talk shows when Mike Pence was repeating this line that there's millions of illegal votes in the election and Donald Trump would have won the popular vote," Suprun stated.

"I said look, Mr. Trump has already used that same line and attacked the foundations of the country through its elections. Now he's co-opted Governor Pence to do the same, and that's where you have to draw the line."
