Earlier today, in protest of a law 1,400 miles away in a state in which she has never been elected, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold issued an edict calling for state employees to boycott Alabama following the signage of an Alabama law that would restrict abortion.

As you would expect, she got a ton of flack for it – not from Republicans, but from journalists who rightly thought the gesture was dumb.

Westword’s Ana Campbell notes that this gesture will do nothing to change the law.

And Colorado Sun’s Jesse Paul pointed out that no state employees were actually slated to go to Alabama.

9News’ Marshall Zelinger sarcastically nailed it by basically noting that this was simply Griswold posturing for a potential U.S. Senate run against Republican U.S. Senator Cory Gardner.

Let’s just call this a swing and a miss, as usual, for Griswold who is more interested in her next political promotion than actually doing her job.
