A Democrat recruiting and training organization devoted to getting women elected has closed their Colorado branch and cut ties with the lady who led it — Lisa Calderón.

That’s three strikes for the failed Denver mayoral candidate and former chief of staff to recently defeated Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca.

Colorado Public Radio reports Emerge America cut ties after an extensive investigation into multiple complaints that resulted in vague language for such an extreme response.

Principles were violated, values weren’t upheld, the environment wasn’t supportive … blah, blah, blah

But CPR reports:

Colorado’s Emerge chapter has been embroiled in drama for a while. Opponents of Calderón accused her of mismanagement and unfairly using her position to benefit her recent campaign for Denver mayor, though a campaign finance complaint that she used Emerge polling for her own gain was dismissed.


Meanwhile, an out-of-work Calderón accused the Democrat organization of a “hostile takeover” of the Colorado chapter and is still holding the group’s 10th anniversary fundraising gala at which Secretary of State Jena Griswold is the keynote speaker, CPR reports.

We’re shocked Griswold would still participate in a fundraising event for a political chapter that was eighty-sixed by its parent national organization.

Is it even legal to raise money for a non-profit after one has been summarily fired from the job?

A Secretary of State ought to know better.
