Remember that plumber who turned a blue state Senate District red through the magic of common sense? The one who led the fight to recall former liberal state Sen. Angela Giron? Yes, folks, he’s running to replace the man vying with Broomfield elections for the most incompetent handling of elections – Gilbert Ortiz, Democrat Clerk and Recorder.
Shall we take a stroll down memory lane with Ortiz?
- August 2013: Ortiz’s office mailed a ballot to a woman who had died over a year ago.
- August 2012: We noted he was failing to do his job as the head of the Colorado County Clerks Association.
- June 2012: Revealing Politics discovered that one woman in Pueblo had received two ballots from Ortiz’s office.
- November 2011: Ortiz sent out a press release and appeared on MSNBC claiming that 28% of inactive voters (totaling 4,870) had voted. Unfortunately, the real number was closer to 10% (or 1,791). Did Ortiz learn math from Lois Court? It’s his ONE JOB. To COUNT. ONE JOB, PeakNation™.
And, we could go on. The truth is that this race could come down to Head (R-Common Sense) vs. Ortiz (D-Incompetence). We’re hoping common sense wins the day.
