Skip to comments.Hell Hath No Fury: The Revenge of Marilyn Marks ( CO Recalls )
Posted on 08/16/2013 8:43:13 AM PDT by george76
In almost any endeavor, paying close attention to details will pay dividends.
For evidence of this wise advice, one need only see the recent success of Marilyn Marks and how her attention to the details of the Colorado Constitution singlehandedly reset two high profile recall elections and may possibly impact the outcomes.
a new law passed by the state legislature mandates that all elections use mail-in ballots. Judge McGahey ruled that the constitution rightly takes precedence.
Marilyn Marks feels that mail-in ballots can lead to various problems, including voter intimidation and fraud. Her criticisms were ignored when the legislature went ahead and made mail-in ballots the law of the land.
But this week, with Judge McGaheys ruling, Ms. Marks won her revenge.
Yes, after the September 10th recall elections, all other elections in Colorado will go back to mail-in status. But the impact of Marks work will be far from over.
Since the recall elections will now need to be held in polling places, the cost of the elections will be significantly higher. Also, the turnout may be completely different since mail-in ballots usually have a higher participation. And since polling places usually draw out the most motivated voters, the outcome may be very different than what it would have been with mail-in ballots.

This good or bad?
Mixed, but generally good for us ?
The military overseas gets hit but also many lazy Union types, dead , and illegals may not vote so often if they have to stand in line at a polling station with paperwork.
Sounds like a good thing for ‘broken glass’ Republicans ...
Angela Giron, one of the recallees, sponsored that bill. It is designed to allow fraud and intimidation.
Like they say, the Rats will fight voter integrity tooth and nail, that is, until the conservatives start to do it. So maybe that is what is needed...
