In November 2016, 38 men and women from Texas were selected to represent the state of Texas as Electors. Those individuals signed an affidavit stating they would vote for the candidate selected by the people of the state of Texas. On November 5, 2016, Mr. Suprun made it clear in a New York Time Op-Ed that he would violate his word.
He is a liar! He either lied when he signed the affidavit or he lied in his New York Time Op-Ed. In either case, the man is a liar and he can no longer be trusted to execute the will of the people of the state of Texas. In my opinion, this man has disqualified himself as an elector by committing Aggravated Perjury.
In the state of Texas, it is a 3rd Degree Felony to commit aggravated purgery. I encourage the Texas Attorney Generals Office to investigate and prosecute Stephen Christopher Suprun for Aggravated Perjury, as defined by Texas law. Mr. Suprun should be charged and jailed under suspicion of the same.
Sec. 37.02. PERJURY. (a) A person commits an offense if, with intent to deceive and with knowledge of the statement’s meaning:
(1) he makes a false statement under oath or swears to the truth of a false statement previously made and the statement is required or authorized by law to be made under oath; or
(2) he makes a false unsworn declaration under Chapter 132, Civil Practice and Remedies Code.
(b) An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor.
Sec. 37.03. AGGRAVATED PERJURY. (a) A person commits an offense if he commits perjury as defined in Section 37.02, and the false statement:
(1) is made during or in connection with an official proceeding; and
(2) is material.
(b) An offense under this section is a felony of the third degree.
Mr. Suprun should be in jail without bond, I believe he is a public figure and a flight risk! In jail, he will be unable to perform his duties as an Official Elector for the State of Texas. The State of Texas should take the necessary legal steps to have him formally replaced as an Elector! We cannot allow this man to break the faith with the good people of the state of Texas!
I am native Texan, born and raised in North Texas! This man must be stopped for the good of all Texans!
3rd Degree Felonies in Texas are punishable by 2-10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.00.
