Former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters took her conspiracy promotion to a new level this week when she implied that law enforcement murdered two family members of her former staff members in order to compel them to testify against her.

At least 100 angry Republicans gathered in a parking lot outside their state party headquarters in Greenwood Village yesterday, calling for the ousting of Kristi Burton Brown, the leader of Colorado’s Republican Party, and other state party officers. Their plan? Old-fashioned intra-party organizing: flood the local party meetings with MAGA Republicans, push as many as possible into delegate positions, and vote out Brown and the rest of the old guard.
This year, numerous races across the U.S. for Secretary of State pitted Democrats against far-right candidates who denied the results of the 2020 election. In the aftermath of this month’s election, it seems that Democrats have overwhelmingly defeated their conspiracist opponents.
In a race that may determine control of the U.S. House of Representatives, election workers across Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District are still counting votes to determine if dark horse Democrat Adam Frisch will upset Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.
UPDATE: On Friday afternoon, a day after this story was published, 9News reporter Kyle Clark tweeted that Moore had pulled out of this event.
CO Senate Candidate Walsh Says ‘You Can’t Campaign on Election Integrity And Win,’ But Calls 2020 Election ‘Fishy’
At a campaign event earlier this year, state senate candidate Tim Walsh reassured his audience that although he can’t campaign on “election integrity,” he is suspicious of Biden’s victory. As part of his justification for claiming that “something was fishy with the 2020 election,” Walsh cited MyPillow CEO and Big Lie proponent Mike Lindell’s “great movies,” saying he’s watched them all.
Conspiracist clerk Tina Peters, who faces multiple felony charges for election-fraud-related crimes, answered questions at a pair of screenings of the faux-documentary “Selection Code” last week in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. The conspiracy movie, which stars Peters herself, makes debunked claims that not only the 2020 presidential election but also the 2021 Grand Junction municipal election were stolen from the rightful conservative winners.
During a Republican U.S. Senate candidate forum in February, Denver businessman and U.S. Senate candidate Joe O’Dea said he had friends who attended January 6, characterized it as a “rally,” and compared participants to those who took part in nationwide police brutality protests that occurred during the summer of 2020.
U.S. Senate hopeful Joe O’Dea took some flack for his decision to attend an NRSC fundraiser tonight in Miami alongside a trio of election deniers: Arizona’s Blake Masters, Adam Laxalt from Nevada, and Ohioan J.D. Vance. As it turns out, however, one of his biggest local donors also believes in the Big Lie.
After speaking at a campaign event in Denver last week, Republican Secretary of State Candidate Pam Anderson refused to disclose whether she thinks Donald Trump should run for president in 2024 because, if she wins her race, she says, she would be overseeing the 2024 election, and she does not endorse candidates who might appear on a ballot she is administering.
