Colorado’s Republican Party chairwoman navigated some rough press last year, after it was revealed she previously served as president of far-right conspiracist group FEC United, which has its own militia. She has since attempted to distance herself from that group, but is apparently still willing to do public events with other conspiracists.
On Jan. 19, the evening before Inauguration Day, Schumé Navarro, who is running for Cherry Creek School Board and was recently elected Secretary of the Arapahoe County Republican Party, recorded a video in which she promised her followers that the inevitable wouldn’t happen.
