Colorado and Arizona have something of a coinky-dink going on regarding the long-discontinued $500 bill.

This past month, the Laramer County, Colorado, Republican Party held a casino-themed fundraiser that featured as a novelty item an imaginatively designed $500 bill with the face and name of former President Donald Trump.

The United States used to have real, high-value currency, which was discontinued in 1969, with the last printing in 1945. The face on a real $500 bill is that of the 25th president, William McKinley.

In the past month, the Colorado Times Recorder has reached out several times to Larimer County Republican Party officials with the following questions:

When was your casino night?

How many people came to the event?

How much money was raised?

Are you sending 5 percent of the take to the Trump campaign, as it’s demanded from candidates who use his name image, and likeness in ads? 

No response so far.

Meanwhile, Arizona Republican Paul Gosar is sponsoring legislation that would put former President Donald Trump’s face on a new, $500 bill.

Gosar rolled out his bill just days after Trump became the first U.S. president convicted of a crime. A New York jury found him guilty of 34 felonies in a state case that centered on hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

There is yet another hurdle for Gosar’s bill to surmount. There is a 150-year-old federal law that prohibits living persons being featured on U.S. money.

No comment as of yet from Trump has been reported.
