Colorado Dem State Senator resigns to avoid recall vote

Michelle Malkin ?@michellemalkin 1h
=>MT @denverpilot Hudak resigning rather than face recall over worries it would swing CO Sen majority. Wonder what she got promised/paid?


This is the arrogant witch that berated a rape victim, telling her she was better off not being able to defend herself against her attacker.

I could think of a more descriptive name for her.

She's set for life, Michelle, by promised political appointments if not money alone.

I'm an avid reader of "War on Women Weekly," and this is the first I've heard of this. Strange.

Hudak's anti-second amendment supporters also threated to "go home, get a gun and shoot" those collecting recall petitions.

She's truly a wretched cunt. And a coward as well apparently.

I guess a special election to fill the remainder of the term.

I'm assuming a Democrat is appointed to finish her term.

We're talking the state Senate, not the US Senate. Colorado law may not allow the Governor to appoint replacements (I know in Texas, the Governor has to call a special election).

ETA: Colorado Constitution Article V, Section 2, states that any replacement will be of the same political party that the prior member was, if that member was affiliated with one. So a Democrat will be the replacement.

But there is a quirk: if the term was less than half-completed (i.e., less than 2 years of a 4-year term), then if the appointee wants to complete the entire term, s/he must stand for election to complete the remaining half.

Dems and their stupid gun grabbing initiatives have lurched Colorado to the right yet again. When will these tards understand that gun control is supported by eastern and western city interests and no one else?

And in this case, she was re-elected in 2012. The Democrats will be able to replace her but only until 2014, when an election to fill the unexpired term must be held by law.

If a recall had gone forward and she lost, the Senate would have gone to Republican control.

I think there would have to be a separate election for the vacancy in the event of a successful recall.

But come 2014, by law there has to be one to fill the unexpired term (since the term was less than half-completed). It may yet happen.

Not there. The two that were recalled, also elected 2 R's to replace them in the same election.

Correct.

This was one so that the Democrats could maintain control of Colorado's Senate.
