We’ve already covered how two gun-grabbing Colorado Democrats are facing recalls thanks to their ardent support of Centennial State civilian disarmament. Those recall votes will take place, unless the Democrats in question can derail those efforts with some legal legerdemain. On Wednesday, the first attempt at that kind of trickery was smacked down . . .
From Fox News:
The secretary of state’s office ruled against Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs, who wanted his recall effort invalidated because of a technical error by his opponents.
Deputy secretary of state Suzanne Staiert also rejected a request by Democratic Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo to have her recall challenge shifted to a new venue because she said Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler wouldn’t fairly decide her case.
The twin decisions mean appeals and more legal wrangling over what could be the first state legislative recall elections in Colorado history.
One would think that a representative of the people, ostensibly a public servant, would relish the chance to make their case to their constituents and prove that their actions mirror the will of the people they purport to represent. And a recall election would give them just that chance.
But instead, it looks like these Dems can read the writing on the wall and know damned good and well that they’ve done something the people they represent don’t approve of. They pushed their own gun control agenda instead of accurately representing their districts, and that light they see at the end of the tunnel is a train headed their way.
BRB. Gonna pop some popcorn.
