13,500 signatures turned in to recall Sen. Angela Giron (Plenty for Another Colo. Recall)
Gazette ^ | June 10, 2013, 9:35 am | Megan Schrader

Posted on 06/10/2013 11:11:25 AM PDT by Red Steel

A little over 13,500 signatures to recall Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, were turned in Monday morning to the secretary of states office by local gun-rights advocates.

To put the ouster attempt on the ballot 11,500 of those signatures must be valid, which is 25 percent of the number of votes cast in the 2010 election that put Giron in office.

Victor Head, a plumber from Pueblo who is leading the campaign against the senator, said they were diligent to ensure all of the signatures were in Giron’s Senate District 3.

The state has three weeks to determine whether the signatures are from registered voters in the district, and if so, the governor will put a question on the ballot in coming months asking whether Giron should be recalled and if so, who should replace her. Candidates can get on the ballot by collecting signatures.

Giron is one of four Democrats targeted for recall this summer because of gun legislation they supported during the 2013 legislative session.

“For me it was her not caring what constituents had to say,” Head said, who came to the Capitol to protest gun control legislation. “She listened and then she voted the exact opposite of what her district wanted her to do. It’s frustrating to have a representative who doesn’t actually represent you.”

Of the other recall efforts, only Senate President John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, had signatures turned in. Those signatures are still being verified.

Giron is holding a noon press conference in Denver to discuss the recall effort.

Once the sig counts are validated and the recall elections starts with candidates in earnest, we shouldn’t have any problems finding where to send money to counter Bloomberg bucks and the rest of Dems. :-)

That's the difference between a representative and a delegate, Victor.

Recalls are something Democrats fear, once the constituents realize that they can do it and be successful it is only a matter of time before the dominoes effect starts happening. Recall efforts are something the liberal news media wants nobody to know about if it’s about recalling a liberal.

I found this organization last week: http://iamcreatedequal.com/

They appear to have raised $55,000 to recall Morse.

Colorado used to be a nice place to live years ago. The last time I lived there (40 years ago) the most popular bumper sticker was DON’T CALIFORNICATE COLORADO!

Well, It has been.

I've been here for nearly 30 years.
In that time the Dems made it clear they were going to
split off the Libertarians from Conservatives in a “divide
and conquer” fashion.
They accomplished that objective.

You need to add Democrat Representative Dave Young to that list.

Northern Colorado. I've thought about running against him, but I don't have skeletons in a closet, I have them in a storage unit.

If you give me a bill number that he voted on pertaining to the 2nd amendment, I can do a bit of research on him.
Thanks. It’d help the cause.

I am so unimpressed with Rocky Mountain Gun Owners over this. They I am not aware that they lifted so much as a finger to help with any of the recalls. There is no reason that they should benefit from them, in my opinion.

From what I heard from someone affiliated with that potential Aurora recall, they were actively discouraging it. Are you talking about Dudley Brown?

When I turned in signatures at the CO Spgs bank, I spoke with a man also turning in signatures. Do Repubs have someone in mind for a candidate? You can private e-mail if necessary.

Am I right to assume that the state senate district held by Democrat Angela Giron has an electorate that is highly Hispanic (perhaps even Hispanic-majority) and strongly labor Democrat (but without many Denver- or Boulder-style moonbats)? If so, a retired cop with the name George Rivera sounds like an ideal candidate to run on the gun issue against Giron, and hopefully the low turnout of a special election will help him pull off the upset.

This says that there are 20 RATs and 15 Republicans in the CO state senate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_state_senate

So we need 3 seats to flip.
