Colorado Democrat Senator Evie Hudak is a vile elitist.
DENVER (Colorado Observer) – Despite hearing life-and-death stories of rape victims who begged legislators not to take away their right to carry concealed weapons on college campuses, a Democrat controlled Senate panel did just that late Monday night.
Those who carry concealed weapons “increase the severity of a crime, increase the likelihood of death,” declared state Sen. Evie Hudak (D-Westminster).
“For women especially, it’s more likely to be used against them and taken away from them,” asserted Hudak. “They are more easily overpowered… and I don’t want people to have a false sense of safety and security.”
How nice of her.
She doesn’t want to give her constituents the choice to protect themselves.
That gross insensitivity plus her flippant dismissal of objections to that state’s sweeping gun and magazine bans passed earlier this year is costing her dearly.
She’s being recalled.
And if Senate President John Morse and Senator Angela Giron are any indicators, she’s not going to be serving much longer.
ARVADA, CO (Denver Post) — The campaign office in a drab strip mall of this metro-area suburb has the urgent feel of an election just days away.
But Election Day for this group is not in November. It’s a Dec. 3 deadline to submit about 18,900 valid signatures to the secretary of state’s office to force a recall vote on Democratic Sen. Evie Hudak.
The effort, based in anger at Colorado’s new Democratic passed gun-control laws, amounts to another end-run at tilting control of the state Senate to Republicans.
On a recent afternoon, volunteers rushed in and out. Some sat while dialing voters. Others stood, pecking at smartphones.
The neon yellow posters that line the walls and front windows made lucid the cause: Recall Hudak.
Take your Hostess Twinkies and get the heck out, you political hack.
