Colorado State Sen. Randy Baumgardner (R-Sulphur Springs), who’s been the subject of multiple allegations of sexual harassment and this week announced he’d resign from office, shared a comic on Facebook that jokes about domestic violence.
One of the most competitive races in Colorado’s state legislature pits a woman who led the charge to expose a culture of sexual harassment at the Capitol against a woman who protected an alleged perpetrator of that harassment from expulsion.
“And so if your listeners don’t like what’s going on and they don’t like the Democrat behavior at the U.S. Senate, then they shouldn’t like it at the state Senate, either. And if we don’t get out the vote — and if we don’t turn in our ballots and vote for Republicans, then we’re going to get more the same. But it’s going to be right in our own backyard.”
A bill that aimed to help survivors of sexual assault on college and university campuses was struck down by Republicans in Colorado’s Senate this week.
Baumgardner’s social media activity shows he’s creepy and gross, but we already knew that, didn’t we?
WARNING: Some images in this post may be considered slightly NSFW, because that’s the low standard of professionalism that *some people* who work in our state’s Capitol adhere to these days, apparently.
Colorado has dug itself into a hole, budget-wise, and it’s time to stop digging, say progressive fiscal analysts
The Bell Policy Center and the Colorado Fiscal Institute (CFI) are trying to popularize their view that Colorado needs more tax dollars to pay for schools, roads, child care, housing, and other basic community needs.
Colorado lawmakers have a surprise pot of extra tax money, and Republicans are proposing to use it both for a tax cut and to fix roads. Double spending.
GOP state lawmakers’ reluctance to act on sexual harassment within their ranks deserves bigger media spotlight
Since long-time public radio reporter Bente Birkeland first broke the news of multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Democratic state Rep. Steve Lebsock (D-Thorton), three more Republican state lawmakers have been accused of sexual misconduct.
Multiple former and current Republican state lawmakers fell for fake news reports that claimed the shooter who killed 26 people inside a Texas church Sunday was connected to Antifa.
