Colorado Senator Recall Forges Ahead
Fox-21 Plus shameless vanity ^ | 4-27-2013 | Me

Posted on 04/27/2013 4:56:01 PM PDT by Colorado Doug

We ended up with a good turnout for today's recall effort. There were canvassing teams out and we staked out a busy intersection by the Citadel Mall. Lots of good feedback from motorists responding to our signs and many others stopping to get their names on the petition to recall Sen. Morse. We even had some thumbs up from Colorado Springs Police that were driving by as well as Sheriff's Deputies. It was a good day and it ended with Fox News-21 stopping by. The story should be on at 9:00 PM MST. They will also be posting a video on their web site. I will add a direct link once it shows up online.

I presume Colorado provides for recall.

How many signatures needed, obtained thus far, when is election, etc.

I’m up in Teller County. Too bad as I’d like a piece of his ass.

I don’t mean that in any homoerotic sense. I mean...not like like I’d actually want any part of Morse’s wormy butt...I mean...damn! better stop now.

I’m sorry. I thought it was a news report. I didn’t see it was your direct post. Sounds like a good turnout. From the e-mail I received from one of the volunteers it didn’t sound like she had received much response so I was a little worried. What’s going on tomorrow?

I know that we have at least one other FReeper working on this too but I won't out her.

I imagine that she will pop onto the thread in due time.

Yes, it did look pretty bad for turnout a couple days ago but by today, it had turned around and all bases were covered.

Thank you for the update. This is very encouraging to hear. I haven’t been down since the one weekend three weeks ago. I was hoping to make it down today, but it didn’t work out. If there are things going on tomorrow too, maybe you can send FR-mail and let me know. Thanks so much for this report. If you get video/article on Fox, please post. :)

You can get you some if you like. Volunteers don’t have to live in his district. You can’t sign the petition yourself but you can get a hundred others to sign instead. That’s a fair trade. :)

Okay, I can give a hint who the other FReeper is. Her name starts with “B” and rhymes with EversTom. :)

I went thru 3pgs of Fox-21 stories, but can’t find anything on Sen. Morse. Can you fill us out-of-staters in, pls?

Need 10,000 verified signatures.

Means we can’t stop before reaching 12,000, because some get tossed or challenged.

Southwest is very sparsely populated area of the state.

It’s not up on Fox yet. Not for a couple more hours. I wanted to post it so that those in the area could catch it on TV. I will ping you with a link once they have it on their website.

Morse is in Colorado Springs with a population of over 400,000. Not all in his district, of course. McLachlan is in the Durango area in the Southwest. I am not sure how they are doing. Good, I hope.

I know there are FReepers that aren’t fond of FB, but here’s the FB link to the John Morse recall. “Like” it if so inclined and stay informed:

I think things are moving along well. Larry Pratt of GOA was in Durango last week helping raise money for the McLachlan recall.

I heard that they had a very nice turn out for that. Of course the Dems are giving the restaurant owner grief for having the dinner there.

Colorado Doug, a true patriotic American doing exactly what should happen to every politician who votes to deprive Americans their protected constitutional rights.

Stay safe, Stay well, and keep up the great work you are doing!! This will send a message to the gun grabbers, the American people are not playing around this time! The war is on, and while the gun grabbers may have won the first battle, the war is far from over!

We need to take this battle to every State in the United States!

I understand. Well, if you can, send any one of the recall groups a few bucks to help with signs and such. Everything helps.

I do hope that we can pick off at least a couple of them with the five recalls in the works right now. I also like to think that maybe, just maybe, through these recalls, we helped to make a couple Senators in Washington blink too. None of them want this sort of thing. Other States will be watching too.

It backfired on them because people who had never eaten there started eating there. LOL
