>>The Colorado Governor went on to suggest that the elections are merely attempts by a radical few to “intimidate and punish a select number of Democratic legislators for daring to vote their conscience”<<

Therein lies the problem. They are NOT elected to “vote their conscience”. They are elected to represent the people.

And yes Governor Chickenpooper, actions DO have consequences.

To vote conscience or represent the will of one's constitutents has always been a serious question.

Edmund Burke believed that after one was elected he must vote according to conscience, not the opinions of those who elected him and ofcourse, then be willing to lose his office in the next election.
