Tamra Axworthy formally ended her campaign to fill a vacant seat in the Colorado House of Representatives, stating in an email today that she can’t “understand why the [Republican] party would move ahead with seating a candidate who was selected under a cloud of suspicion and who has embarrassed our party with racially charged offensive remarks.”
After she issued an apology for “comments or posts on Facebook that have been found offensive and racist,” newly appointed State Rep. Judy Reyher (R-Pueblo) launched a fundraising campaign to take advantage of the media attention she’s gotten for such comments, such as black people “hate white people with a passion” and African Americans are “hatred-filled beings.”
In speech before being appointed a state representative, Reyher said public schools “keep churning out more idiots”
During her speech Monday to a Republican vacancy committee that selected her to represent House District 47 at the Colorado Capitol, former Otero County GOP chair Judy Reyher slammed public education, saying, “They keep pouring money in, and we keep churning out more idiots.”
Colorado’s newest state lawmaker, Judy Reyher, has a history of sharing her white supremacist views on Facebook, including doubts about former President Barack Obama’s birthplace.
