Colorado is Pissed: Update

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 3, 2013 by blackshepherd

The effort to recall Colorado State Senator John Morse has continued apace. Today the recall effort submitted more than 16,000 signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State, who has 15 business days to certify them. 7,178 signatures must be certified as valid for the recall to continue. If the correct number of signatures is reached, Morse will appear on a ballot in the next few months. If this effort does go forward then it will be the first successful recall of a Colorado lawmaker in State history.

Apparently the recalls against State Representatives Mike McLachlan and Evie Hudak were not gaining any traction and have ended. The recall against State Senator Angela Giron is continuing and the signatures are due next week.

Huffington Post take on the story.

Colorado Springs Gazette version.

Story from the Pueblo Chieftain discussing, but not detailing, sources of outside money and influence in the Angela Giron recall. It seems that over 70,000 dollars have been donated to her by Washington D.C. and Denver gun-control groups.
