Douglas County school board candidate Ronda Scholting has been in the news a lot lately.

Scholting likes to play down her partisan contacts.

“Who me, partisan Democrat? Never.” Or so she would have Douglas County believe.

Complicating that effort are the extensive ties that are being uncovered between Ronda Scholting and recalled State Senator Angela Giron.

After reporting that Scholting was a max-out donor to Giron in 2009, when Giron was still a staffer for U.S. Senator Michael Bennet seeking an appointment to the Pueblo area State Senate seat, additional ties between the two left-wing politicians were brought to our attention.

Not only did Scholting make the biggest political donation of her career to Angela Giron, but she also produced Giron’s first campaign ads.

Like David Axelrod to Barack Obama, Ronda Scholting is also a former reporter who left the business to become a political advisor to Democrat politicians.

On September 27, 2009 Angela Giron released her first campaign commercial on YouTube, produced by none other than Ronda Scholting.

Then on October 15, 2009, Scholting made the maximum allowable contribution of $400 to Giron’s fledgling campaign. Two days later, another Giron commercial was released, also produced by Ronda Scholting.

Normally, producers of campaign commercials don’t have their names publicly listed, but in this case it’s clear Ronda Scholting wanted her support of Angela Giron shouted from the rooftops.

We’re happy to oblige.
