John Morse, the anti-gun state senator that was at the head of the recent passage of a string of new gun control laws in Colorado, has officially been recalled!
The committee behind the recall effort submitted over 16,000 signatures to the secretary of state for verification. 7,178 were verified signatures were needed to officially have a recall election. Over 10,000 were found to be verified and the secretary of state signed off yesterday.
So while being recalled by his own constituents who are pissed about his gun grab, who does he run to - to get the money he will need to fight to save his Senate seat?
He has 15 days to challenge the Sigs. Then the Gov. must move forward with the recall in 45 - 75 days.Meanwhile, Mr. Morse, a Colorado Springs Democrat, released a statement Monday on his Facebook page asking for out-of-state help from those in traditionally liberal cities to help fight the recall effort.
“We can get phone lists to you and things like that and have you help from Boston, Massachusetts, or San Francisco, California,” said Mr. Morse in a video message. “So thanks for all that you’ve done and thanks for all that you’re going to do as we move forward to take on this tiger.”
In addition to Morse, State Sen. Angela Giron, another prominent anti gun politician is currently waiting the verification of her recall sigs. She is also under investigation regarding possible pay-off by her husband regarding protesters at a recall sig. location.
