House Democrats were very vocal this year in their opposition to photo ID for voting (HB12-1111), as they are to just about every ballot integrity measure…
“When we start going down the path of saying, ‘You can’t vote because you can’t prove you’re who you are right here and right now in front of me – whoever ‘me’ is, the poll judge or whoever it is – we go down a dangerous path,” said state Rep. Lois Court, D-Denver, in March. ”We’ve been on that path before, folks, we’ve had poll taxes, we’ve had literacy tests. Guess what those were used for: they were used to suppress voting. That’s what this is about: suppressing voting.
“And it is not the route we want to take in the flagship democracy in the world. It is not a necessary thing to do. I have been here for four years; we have heard this every year. It continues to be a solution in search of a problem. Please vote ‘No.’
Now, Media Trackers reports that Matt Inzeo, the spokesman for the Colorado Democratic Party, may have a little voter registration problem of his own, being registered in both Colorado and D.C., and perhaps having participated in the Colorado caucuses before being eligible.
“When Media Trackers attempted to contact Inzeo on his cell phone to ask whether he voted in the 2012 caucus, he abruptly hung up before providing any comment,” the website reported.
Colorado Peak Politics raises the question of whether Inzeo, a spokesman for a recall effort against the secretary of state, would have even been eligible to sign that petition.
Perhaps Rep. Court, being a member of House Democratic leadership, will issue a statement. Through the state party spokesman.
