If Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) is not re-elected in November, he says he "could" respond to the loss by commuting the death sentence of mass shooter Nathan Dunlap.
Dunlap is the infamous killer who shot 5 and killed 4 at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese in 1993. He was angered over being fired, and Denver Magazine 5280 reports that Dunlap was at his girlfriend's apartment having sex with her when the police tracked him down "only...a few hours" after the shootings.
Dunlap was sentenced to death but when the date for his execution came up in 2013, Hickenlooper granted a "temporary reprieve." The National Journal reported that he chose this action as a way to pass the buck on taking a firm stand on the death penalty. Families of the victims gunned down by Dunlap were heartbroken and outraged.
The Journal also pointed out that Hickenlooper has since indicated he could further his action -- changing it to full clemency -- should Coloradans elect Republican Bob Beauprez instead of him in November.

He should lose just for saying that
But Perry gets indicted for cutting funds to a drunk.
Caving to extortion is never a good plan.
One definition of “terrorism” is the use of threats to intimidate voters into taking a preferred course of action.
Sounds like this CO ham sammich needs to be indicted....fast.
a threat beyond idiocy.
This should backfire on Hick.
He might want to consider that before he acts.
Easy fix. Elect the OTHER guy. . . then when the killer is released, someone shoots him dead. First thing the new Governor does when sworn in, is issue a full pardon to the killer-killer. . . .
Hickenlooper is cooked and he knows it. You don’t make this kind of statement unless you are in trouble in the polls.
Looking for the satire tag.
indeed. that’s about as messed up as you can get.
Lose? He should be impeached and thrown in jail.
Man, no kidding. Talk about a morally vacant comment...
That should send shivers down the back of his supporters, knowing this ass hat would put them and their children in grave danger...instantly. ..
I guess I am no longer surprised at the total immaturity of nearly very Dem who holds office. Appalling.
Hickenloopy, what a sick twisted freak.
