Giron supporters scrutinizing recall petition signatures

PUEBLO, Colo. -

Supporters of Democratic Pueblo state Sen. Angela Giron are knocking on doors and calling those who signed a petition to recall her. Members of Pueblo United for Angela say they want to make sure people know what they signed.

Daniel Bravo signed the petition. On Wednesday afternoon, he received two calls from different people. He said the callers asked if he wanted to remove his name from the petition. He said no. Both times he asked who he was speaking to but said each time the caller hung up on him.

"I felt like I was being harassed only because they wouldn't tell me who they were," Bravo said.

Bravo voted for Giron in 2010, but now he wants her out of office.

The recall effort is getting scrutiny on both sides. KRDO-TV obtained a video in which you can hear Victor Head, the organizer behind the recall, talking about store managers from two local businesses bringing employees to sign the petition, all while still being on the clock.

In the video, Head says, "He drove his employees, one at a time, back to us," Head said with a chuckle. "Tell them to do it. Encourage 'em."

Yep, take away your rights and then intimidate you if you don’t sit there and take it.

Let the Republicans knock on doors when they see a hundred votes from the same address six months from now and you’ll hear the Democrats howl like wolves.

If the Giron gets “another bite of the apple” to have people retract their signatures, then the signature collectors should have additional time to collect more.

There were also radio spots telling people not to answer their doors when the petitioners knocked on their doors to get them to sign the petition because they were felons and crooks.

Nah. Not their style.

They'll just vandalize cars, homes businesses, and intimidate further that way.

There's long, documented experience there...

10am – 304 S. Union Ave. (CPC/COWINS office)

Not knowing what district she represents, it would probably be very helpful to know if that address is in the capital or in a town or city in her district.

And to add insult to injury, his name was probably removed without his permission.

Doing this sort of thing is common with ignorant, stupid no-information "voters."

The State Elections Commission should start getting formal complaints about this practice. We have enough problems with criminals at the federal level.

I don’t know. That is just what was on her website. I think it’s in her district, but I’m not sure.

It is in Pueblo. IIRC it is the convention center at 4th and Union.
