Residents of Democratic State Senator Angela Giron’s district who had signed the petition to recall the embattled State Senator are complaining that they, like those who signed a similar petition to recall Senate President John Morse, are receiving phone calls from Giron’s supporters asking them to remove their names from the petition. The new twist – the callers are refusing to identify who they are, according to the Pueblo Chieftain:
“’They wouldn’t tell me who they were. They just called and said, ‘Did you want to change your vote because they lied to you about what was on the ballot?’ I said I didn’t want to change my vote because I believe about what I’m voting for,’ said Ron Peitz.”
@COpeakpolitics Not only are they not identifying themselves, they’re calling multiple times. Someone got 9 calls yesterday! Harrassment?

“An individual called and asked if I remembered signing a petition pertaining to Senator Angela Giron. Of course I remember signing that petition. He laughed at me and said ‘Well, do you know you signed a petition that contained false and fictitious information?’ And that I didn’t know what I was signing…. Why do you call me at home and berate me and tell me I’m so misinformed? It was so insulting.”
