CO Dems Want SOS Removed From Office

This guy is a real piece of ____!

Colorado Democrats unleashed some of their strongest criticism yet of Secretary of State Scott Gessler Wednesday, saying he should be removed from office after he opposed an election-related bill that was later killed by fellow Republicans.

"Gessler) has once again prioritized his partisan agenda above the rights of Coloradans to vote," Democratic Party Chairman Rick Palacio said. "If (he) is unwilling to fulfill his duties as a non-partisan election officer, the people of Colorado should consider all avenues necessary to remove him as Secretary of State."

Asked if the Democratic party was referring to a recall election, spokesman Matt Inzeo replied: "I wouldn't rule it out."

The Democratic assault came after Gessler testified against a bill he said equated to "radical surgery on elections administration" just months before a presidential election. While the bill had bipartisan support among county clerks and lawmakers, Gessler noted there was not consensus among all clerks. He named four — all Republicans — who opposed the legislation, and he refuted claims that the bill would save money.

"This bill created massive confusion, and many local officials expected big increases in county costs," Gessler said. "We need to take a step back and come up with broadly-supported, bipartisan solutions."

ALEC Statement on Trayvon's Murder

Trayvon Martin’s death was a great tragedy that brings sadness to all of us. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and community.

It is a great shame that some are using this tragedy to further their political ends. Indeed, Paul Krugman describes advancing his political goals as the “silver lining to Trayvon Martin’s killing.” That is as callous as it is cruel, and it is also incorrect. Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law was the basis for the American Legislative Exchange Council’s model legislation, not the other way around. Moreover, it is unclear whether that law could apply to this case at all. “Stand Your Ground” or the “Castle Doctrine” is designed to protect people who defend themselves from imminent death and great bodily harm. It does not allow you to pursue another person. It does not allow you to seek confrontation. It does not allow you to attack someone who does not pose an imminent threat. What it does is allow you to defend yourself and your family from immediate and real danger.

In the end, we will always respect people who disagree with us in matters of policy, but it is simply wrong to try to score political points by taking advantage of a great tragedy like Trayvon’s death.

Colorado SOS Finding More Ways to Disenfranchise

This guy is on a rampage.

Secretary of State Gessler asks Homeland Security to ID noncitizens on Colorado voter rolls

Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler has asked the Department of Homeland Security to provide his office with the citizenship status of about 4,500 registered voters — his latest tactic in an ongoing effort to remove noncitizens from the state's voter rolls.

"It is imperative to the integrity of Colorado elections that we ensure only U.S. citizens are registered to vote and voting in our elections," Gessler wrote in the March 8 letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

Critics of the move agreed only U.S. citizens should vote but said Gessler is going to extremes during a crucial election year — in a key battleground state — to address a problem that his office so far has been unable to quantify.

Voter ID - Remember When The GOP Went Nuts Over Photo ID's to Purchase Hand Guns?

Suddenly photo ID's are all the rage amongst the "small government" group.

It was in the 2000 campaign that the NRA went after Democratic candidate Al Gore with a vengeance built up over years of confrontation with the Clinton administration and its “jack-booted government thugs,” as others put it.

The Moses of gun rights may have had too regal a bearing to use such incendiary words. But in attacking a Democrat who favored mandatory photo ID licenses for future handgun buyers, Heston held little else back. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/23985685/ns/today-entertainment/t/heston-was-public-face-gun-rights/#.T1pziudZAs0

Judge Who Sent Racist E-mail - Will Get New Office - Obama Stimulus

Come this summer, Judge Richard Cebull will be conducting business in a brand new $79 million federal courthouse in Billings, Montana, paid for through President Obama's economic recovery program. That is, if Cebull survives the firestorm engulfing him for forwarding a racist e-mail about the president.

everal advocacy groups and lawmakers have called for Cebull's resignation, but the judge will probably not face any harsh punitive action, said CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin.

It's rare and generally very difficult to force federal judges from office. They receive tenure, and the Constitution guarantees they can remain on the bench during good behavior.

The standards for removal are not clear, beyond a violation of civil or criminal law. Congress would have to initiate impeachment proceedings, but the few judges to face that have usually resigned before an outcome.
