Not quite as bad as Donna Brazile forwarding questions to Hillary Clinton pre-debate but, very questionable ethically speaking.
A progressive public relations firm founded by environmentalist and CNN political contributor Van Jones is representing “a number” of Republican electors who plan on voting against President-elect Donald Trump.
Chris Suprun, a Republican presidential elector from Texas, garnered media attention on Monday after having an opinion piece published in the New York Times explaining why he plans to defect from Trump with his Electoral College vote on Dec. 19.
“The election of the next president is not yet a done deal. Electors of conscience can still do the right thing for the good of the country,” Suprun wrote. “Presidential electors have the legal right and a constitutional duty to vote their conscience. I believe electors should unify behind a Republican alternative, an honorable and qualified man or woman such as Gov. John Kasich of Ohio. I pray my fellow electors will do their job and join with me in discovering who that person should be.”
Supron wrote in his Twitter bio to direct all media inquiries to an email address at Megaphone Strategies, a Washington, D.C.-based “social justice” public relations firm.
Van Jones, a left-wing CNN commentator and former adviser to President Obama who resigned after coming under fire for his affiliation to 9/11 conspiracy theorists and referring to Republicans as “assholes,” founded Megaphone Strategies earlier this year. Jones has attributed Trump’s electoral success to a “white-lash” and said that a Trump “hate wave” could hit Canada.
