Everyone knows that Rep-elect Rochelle Galindo isn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, nor the most stable, ahem, mentally. On November 6, Galindo posted on Facebook a video of her walking a group of her interns into the University of Northern Colorado voting center, urges them to stay in line if they’re still in line at 7 p.m., and told people to vote for her, according to Complete Colorado.
There are a few problems with her actions. First and foremost, she was electioneering within 100 feet of a polling location. She was actually INSIDE a polling location. Second, an election judge told her to knock it off and she continued anyway, which may or may not be illegal, but it’s certainly rude and disruptive.
Naturally, the Colorado Republican Party filed not just a complaint, but a criminal complaint, against Galindo. The complaint is now in the Weld County District Attorney’s hands. If convicted, Galindo could face up to $1,000 penalty and up to a year in jail.
According to Complete, this is not Galindo’s first run-in with the law. In 2015, Galindo spent leftover campaign funds to take a friend or special friend to Vegas for the weekend. Unfortunately, it would appear that her lawbreaking was not discovered before the statute of limitations expired.
This is just another example of how Democrats think that rules apply to you, PeakNation™, but not them. Everyone else must comply, except for Galindo. Exactly the person we want making laws. That’s sarcasm.
