Former lawmaker Rochelle Galindo cited for giving alcohol to underage intern

GREELEY, Colo. – A Colorado state lawmaker who resigned following what she called false allegations against her has been cited for providing alcohol to a person under the age of 21.

The Greeley Tribune reports 29-year-old former Rep. Rochelle Galindo is accused of giving wine to an underage college intern multiple times during her 2018 campaign. A former House legislative aide also was cited.

Galindo resigned May 12, saying she wouldn’t put her constituents through a recall campaign “based on political smear tactics and false allegations.”

Police investigated allegations of sexual assault but closed the case at the request of the reporting party and because they couldn’t find evidence to support the claims.

Galindo, who was a first-term Democrat, did not answer her phone Thursday night, and her voicemail box was full.
