The successful effort to recall Democratic Senate President John Morse was one of the more satisfying outcomes of 2013. Imagine our entertainment when we stumbled across a new issue committee called “Citizens for a Stable Colorado”. Stable how, you ask? By keeping the same arrogant, not-accountable-to-constituents legislators in office. Here’s the purpose of the organization:
“To educate Colorado voters on the instability caused by easing recall elections and to oppose any ballot initiatives that try to ease the requirements for recall elections”
Who would stand up such an organization? Turns out the organization was filed in April 2014 by Tyler Chaffee at Strategies 360, who helped pass the “Better Denver” bond as well as helping out those poor union folk, like the SEIU. The other person listed as an agent is none other than “[email protected]”. Of course, CPAMorse.com takes us right to John Morse’s mug.
Morse, perhaps feeling a little sensitive after being removed from office by his constituents after
not listening to them his disastrous gun grab, set this committee up to fight Initiative 76, which would have defined who could be recalled and how. There were just two beneficiaries of this committee – Morse ($3850) and Marc Grueskin’s firm Rechtkornfeld, PC ($10,812). The Colorado Forum Fund also received a donation of $437 when the account was terminated in July.
Who donated to the committee?
- Unions and allies: American Federation of Teachers, Colorado Education Association, Colorado Association of School Executives
- Left-wing groups: Colorado Bar Association, One Colorado (mission creep anyone?), Conservation Colorado (…because it’s concerned about mail in ballots causing pollution…?)
- Gang of Four: Pat Stryker
Gosh, what interest could these groups have in shutting down recall efforts? Could it be that these groups are trying to maintain their stranglehold on Colorado? Or, is it just that John Morse is super bitter? Since the ballot initiative was struck down by the Colorado Supreme Court on a technicality, Colorado may never know.
But, we will laugh about the fact that Morse set up a committee from which only he and Grueskin benefited that so obviously was driven by Morse’s bitterness.
Let's face it, democrats have been screwing things up for decades, it's just communism lite
Unfortunately, what these types of "ill disposed persons" are doing (and have done) IS constitutional! Penalties were enacted but not enforced. . As an example; in Pennsylvania, a mere 6 years after the 1776 Declaration of Independence 'dissolved the "political bands" which connected them with another', delegates to the 1782 Pennsylvania Assembly found it necessary to enact an ACT to "Prevent the erecting any new and independent state within the limits of this commonwealth" (click on the .pdf at the link below). Shortly thereafter, in 1789, the U.S. Constitution was drafted with methods by which new "political bands" were able to erect new States within the jurisdiction of other States. To wit: Article 4 § 3:
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
That idiot and the wicked witch of the north and south lost their jobs because they trampled the constituon of BOTH the us and the state of colorado , let them rot and bar them from every returning to politics
Loretta Miller Remember to vote for Cory Gardner for Colorado. Let Udall the OBOT realize how out of touch with Coloradans he really is.
Sara Elizabeth is a hotty.
Dont trust any Democrat. Ever.
Loretta Miller Sad for you and those that believe in fairy dust and unicorns
Richard M. Shirley HE has! A couple of steps…Morse is an OBOT. Betcha following the money puts him in Bloombergs palm.
Hey Morse, you'll have a lot more company after November!
How could Morse see that he did anything wrong when he is a liberal (morally superior)? No wonder he is bitter.
Actually the Chief of the Detroit PD has come out publicly in favor of private citizens protecting themselves with firearms. Which puts him more than a couple of steps above Morse.
Go back to where you came from Morse. Libs. A detestible 4 letter word for Morse and others.
So….. they want to impose draconian laws on you AND tell you there's no recourse? Before you ever vote Democrat just sell or give your guns away, because by voting Democrat you are saying you can do just fine without your gun(s).
Morse still thinks he did nothing wrong. At least he won't admit it. He says that all the people were lied to about the reasons for the recall. He is such a dolt
Communists really hate this idea of being ousted by the people. After all they are much smarter and more valuable than the rest of us serfs aren't they?
hehe…could work in favor of the Repubs…
As a Democrat and Second Amendment supporter I will never again vote for any Dem that even mentions Gun Control or it's for the children! They did this to themselves and deserve everything they got!
Please John Morse go away move to Detroit Michigan where there political force have ran the city into the ground. Not to worry they are gun grabbers too. Always rank up for the most murders.
