Skip to comments.Gun Control Pols Ousted in Recall Election
Posted on 09/14/2013 12:35:23 PM PDT by John Semmens
Last Tuesday, voters in Colorado ousted Colorado Senate President John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) and state Senator Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) from their seats in the State Legislature. Both were prominent gun control advocates. While Morse took his defeat with some degree of grace, Giron cried foul.
As Giron sees it, her 56-44 percent trouncing was the result of voter suppression. Thanks to the generosity of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg we outspent the other side by a seven-to-one ratio, Giron recounted. How could this not have been a decisive edge? The only logical conclusion is they cheated.
The need to control guns is a national issue, not a state issue, Giron said. Yet, non-Coloradans were routinely denied the right to cast ballots on my behalf. On top of this, people who felt strongly on this issue were prevented from voting more than once. This negates the impact of enthusiasm and commitment that has become a vital component of modern voting procedure in venues as widespread as professional sports and reality TV.
Democratic National Committee Chairperson, Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, seconded Girons assessment calling it voter suppression, pure and simple. Its part of a disturbing trend were seeing rear its ugly head around the nationdemands that voters show ID, excessive scrutiny of voter registration rolls, and undo suspicion of boxes of mail-in ballots delivered by political action committees. These heinous tactics constitute a severe threat to progressive values succeeding in elections at all levels.

Debbie forgot to mention the increased scrutiny of voters who voted in alphabetical order.
We need to get voter id in all states. But it will take a long time.
I regret to say but it is indeed getting harder and harder to separate your writings from those of ‘legitimate’ sources like AP, NBC, the Onion and Mad Magazine!
This is especially true when the ‘usual subjects’ are included; Debbie W-S, Nancy Botox, Harry Reedles, V.Plugs, Chuck Schmuck and their allies.
Simple explanation, that is order in which they got on the SEIU bus in Albuquerque! Makes it easier to mark the pay stubs.
LOL! You may have solved the riddle.
We need very simple mandatory voter ID and anyone who shows up to vote without one should not only be stopped but should be investigated to find out if they are really who they say they are. If it is determined that they were attempting voter fraud they should go to prison as a felon.
And by the way Debbie,
Will you please brush your hair. Please. It’s a mess.
