Report: Dump Trump Elector Caught in Massive Lie About 9/11
December 16, 2016
A faithless elector in Texas that vowed to vote for John Kasich over Donald Trump is in some hot water over one of the reasons he gave for turning on the will of the people.
In an op-ed for the New York Times, Christopher Suprun, a Republican member of the Electoral College, vowed to NOT cast his vote for President-elect Trump.
In doing so, he told a story about being a fireman who responded to the devastating terror attacks on 9/11.
“Fifteen years ago, as a firefighter, I was part of the response to the Sept. 11 attacks against our nation,” Suprun wrote. “That attack and this year’s election may seem unrelated, but for me the relationship becomes clearer every day.”
A new report suggests that there are a couple of problems with his story – one, his fire company is not listed as having responded on 9/11, and two, Suprun allegedly became a firefighter in October of that year.
