A so-called “faithless elector” was among those who spoke at a rally opposing Donald Trump’s presidency on Saturday, December 17, two days before the Electoral College would cast its vote.

Chris Suprun, a Republican presidential elector, was greeted with cheers when he took the stage at the Washington rally. Suprun, who hails from Texas, <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/05/opinion/why-i-will-not-cast-my-electoral-vote-for-donald-trump.html?_r=1" target="_blank">wrote a New York Times editorial</a> earlier this month about why he couldn’t vote for Trump at the Electoral College.

A report from <a href="http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/texas-news/no-record-of-faithless-elector-chris-suprun-as-a-911-first-responder/371421191" target="_blank">ABC’s <span class="caps">WFAA</span></a> questions Suprun’s background, including whether he was a first-responder for the September 11 attack, as he claims.

“I’m not going to be a rubber stamp for the Kremlin,” Suprun said at the rally.

The rally was sponsored by a group called Turnout, which detailed why it doesn’t support Trump <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/208766682860195/" target="_blank">on the event page</a>.

“With control of the White House, Senate and House of Representative, the Republicans will now be able to easily pass all of the horrific legislation they have proposed,” the Facebook event page says. “GOP Senators have passionately and relentlessly said the will fight against green energy for the coal and oil companies, they promised to end healthcare for 20 million people, they promised they will reverse gay rights and outlaw abortion, they promise to defund the Department of Education and Environmental Protection Agency, they promise to carpet bomb the Middle East, they promise to fill the supreme court with a right-wing court justice, they promise to privatize social security and give those trillions of dollars to wall street, they promised to abolish the minimum wage, they promised to curtail voting rights.”
