First it was the imperious Colorado Senate President, John Morse, who discovered that people in his district were lining up to get another crack at him, electorally speaking. Now, in the wake of her ardent Centennial State civilian disarmament efforts, Pueblo Rep. Angela Giron will be next on the list to go before her constituents and try to justify her anti-2A votes. Pueblo Freedom and Rights will be submitting about 2,300 more signatures than required to the Secretary of State in order to start the clock on Giron’s recall vote. Here’s the group’s press release . . .
Pueblo, CO, June 10, 2013– Pueblo Freedom and Rights, www.pueblofreedomandrights.org is a 501(C) (4) Colorado grassroots group heading the recall of anti-2nd Amendment Colorado state senator Angela Giron (D – Pueblo Colorado). The group submitted over 13,570 District 3 voter recall petition signatures to the Colorado Secretary of States’ Office exceeding the 11,285 signatures necessary. Additionally these are known to be carefully gathered highly-reliable signatures.
The submitted petition signatures and addresses will be submitted to and verified by the Secretary of State. It is expected that Democrats will further challenge the petitions and signatures to include court challenges to draw out the process. If the count still exceeds 11,285 Giron will be given five working days from that time to decide whether or not to resign her office.
If Giron resigns within the five-day period, state Democrats can appoint a replacement from their ranks. If she does not resign, a date for the special election is set. It is expected that that the Governor and Democrat Party including Bloomberg money may try to extend any election so as to prepare a campaign to try to save Giron should she try to run to stay in office.
“Giron’s disregard for the majority of her constituents to vote no on anti-2nd Amendment issues and her general disregard of our Constitution and the rights of the citizens of Colorado demonstrates she must be removed from the senate.” — Victor Head, President of Pueblo Freedom and Rights (PFR).
