As one of Colorado’s most prominent election conspiracists, Joe Oltmann has spent the past two years insisting that there has been massive voter fraud in just about every Colorado and national election since 2020. He’s never been able to produce any evidence of this, and in fact, has been sued for defamation multiple times over his unsubstantiated claims.
Angered by the Colorado Times Recorder and other outlets’ reporting on his group FEC United, businessman-turned-conservative-activist Joe Oltmann went hunting for proof that several Colorado journalists–including this one–are members of Antifa. During the course of his research, Oltmann insists, he found evidence that a top executive at one of the largest voting equipment companies in the nation rigged the presidential election.
Unwilling to accept that their fellow voters chose Joe Biden over President Trump, hundreds of conservative evangelicals gathered in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 12 to insist without proof that voter fraud turned the election.
Freezing weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the 60 or so Trump supporters who gathered outside Colorado’s Capitol today to support a group that claims China rigged the election and predicts the U.S. will go to war against the Asian nation.
After partnering with the new conservative organization FEC United during the election season, Colorado Republicans are now forced to choose sides between their own party’s officials and the conspiracy theorist leader of the grassroots group, Joe Oltmann.
For the second time in two days, a Denver Metro county Republican party announced that it, “wouldn’t certify” election results that have already been certified. The Adams County Republican Party said Tuesday it will not certify the county election results, despite the fact that its own representative to the canvass board has already signed off on certification.
The Jefferson County Republican Party announced on Facebook today that it “refused to certify the election results.” Election certification is the responsibility of the canvass board and the County Clerk, not political parties.
Colorado Republicans are asking their supporters for donations to investigate election fraud, but apparently only in those races they lost or are still too close to call.
As President Donald Trump escalates his claims that mail-in ballots would be subject to fraud by foreign countries or Democrats trying to rig elections, Colorado’s record-setting primary election showed how safe and fair voting by mail can be for voters of all parties, according to Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat.
