Successful recall elections Tuesday of two Democratic state senators in Colorado were because of “voter suppression, pure and simple,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday.
Wasserman Schultz blamed lawsuits filed by opponents of gun control to prevent voters from mailing in ballots, the late announcement of polling locations, and “efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win.”
“The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature and the people,” Wasserman Schultz, a Democratic lawmaker from Florida, said in a statement. “This was voter suppression, pure and simple.”
From what I heard the exact opposite occurred. Grassroots won over established tactic the gun grabbers threw at them. It is a Dem accusation so the media will run with their account.
Isn't this the election that has one of the Democrats that was up for recall handing out cash to people at the recall petition signings?
I was working in the Republican HQ yesterday and was told that the Morse campaign got
a bus and went to Colorado College and picked up a bunch of college kids to vote illegally.
One of our staff made a sign that basically said " if you vote illegally you are committing a felony" and
went and stood in front of the poll. Apparently a number of the kids did U turns.
I hate it when voter fraud is suppressed.

It's only two seats out of a hundred and both houses still have solid democratic majorities.
