Skip to comments.Colorado Dems: "It's about voter suppression"
Posted on 09/14/2013 8:42:48 AM PDT by Kaslin
Democrats apparently can never just loose an election. Something sinister, even illegal, must be the reason. "I'm not sure what happened," former State Senator Angela Giron told the Denver Post the morning after she was trounced in a first of its kind recall election in Colorado. Now, she's got a different story voter suppression.
Angela Giron lost her Senate District 3 seat in Pueblo, Colorado in a recall election last Tuesday by more than 12 points, 56.0% to 43.9%. This is particularly stunning as hers is a district composed of nearly 50% registered Democrats. Barack Obama won the district by nearly 20 points in 2012 just ten months ago.
But, as you'll see in the CNN video below, Giron is completely unwilling to accept the fact that the voters of her district rejected her for her support of the anti-Second Amendment legislation she championed in the 2013 session of the Colorado legislature. According to the Denver Post, 20 percent of the voters who signed the recall petition were registered Democrats volunteering that Giron had become "arrogant and difficult to work with." That observation seems abundantly clear in the CNN interview below.
Giron Voter Suppression
Voter suppression has become a favorite mantra of the Democrat Progressive left. As with a lot of their emotional arguments, however, the facts don't support their argument. For more, see A Line of Sight.comcontributing editor Brian Anderson's recent article, "Straight Talk about Voter I.D. Laws."
You can pretty much bus people in to vote in CO legally and the vote is still suppressed?
Whose fault is it that these Democrats didn’t get their voters to the polls for this election?
You have to admit if the dead couldn’t vote, then I guess it is suppressed.
Anyone who writes for a living should know the difference between ‘loose’ and ‘lose.
Run the damned socialists all the way back to California and be done with this.
I just can't see that enough. I get the giggles every time I see it.
I find it very curious that in every election since 2008 the democRATS have been unable to win anything above the level of dog catcher EXCEPT for the 2012 presidential election.
Is it just me or does that seem odd to anyone else?
Why do you never add politics/elections to the topic field? Just curious.
“”hers is a district composed of nearly 50% registered Democrats.””
Has anyone seen the percent of Democrats who voted in her recall election?
Maybe a whole bunch of Democrats voted to recall her.
loose and lose.
Loose, choose, snooze.
Some words are not spelled as they should be.
Well then! You should double-down on your gun control efforts! Hell, make ALL guns COMPLETELY illegal! It's CLEARLY a winning strategy!
Is this libtard half black, Hispanic, Indian or what...that’s a hard tan she’s sporting there.
Because it still fits.
Same old story...if it went their way, it was ‘fair’. If it didn’t then it was “suppression”......
Hell, the rules were MADE for them, outside bussed-in voters, and they still couldn’t get it right.
Screw them and their momma too..
All of the local news has been gleefully ignoring the recall aftermath for the last 3 days. I’m doing what I can to inform, but there’s been massive flooding here. Kinda hard to inject this into tragedy, but I’m still trying. It’s important.
“Voter Surpression” will be the theme music for these two’s fund-raising and election campaigns. You have got to remember, Democrats are, by natural selection, entitled office holders. When you saw Spritzer and Wienner running for office, it demonstrates them seeking their natural habitat.
I am sure that, at some point in the near future, the EPA, NWS and other Government Bureaucracies will declare that the natural environment REQUIRES that DEMOCRATS be the only permitted political office holders.
We need to outlaw the demoKKKrat party and ban it, they’re our equivalent of the slammite brotherhood.
Local media REALLY don’t want to talk about it.
I always think, “Loose Moose!”
