Democratic state Rep. Rochelle Galindo resigns citing undisclosed allegations against her

Democratic state Rep. Rochelle Galindo, of Greeley, abruptly announced her resignation on Sunday afternoon citing undisclosed allegations against her.

The first-year state lawmaker said the allegations against her were false, but that “they will make our fight against the pending recall effort untenable.” She didn’t provide any information on what the allegations against her are.

“I will not put my constituents through what will surely be a recall campaign based on political smear tactics and false allegations,” Galindo said in a written statement. “Instead, I will resign my seat as the elected representative of House District 50, effective immediately.”

A complaint was made to the Greeley police department. The Weld County District Attorney’s office said Monday it is aware of the complaint but has not yet received anything from police.
