Liberal Colorado Legislator Whines About Election Loss
Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 13, 2013
Two liberal Colorado state legislators were kicked out of office in recall elections this week. While the people have spoken, one of the legislators, Angela Giron, refused to accept their message after being defeated by Republican George Rivera. The video below shows a whining politician that looks like a deer in the headlights when questioned about the People’s decision.
The recall against Ms. Giron was initiated and run by a grassroots organization that was against her stance on gun control and its implication for Second Amendment rights. While being interviewed on CNN after the recall, Giron refused to acknowledge this reality or take any responsibility for the defeat. Instead, she blamed “voter suppression”, “voter confusion” and that voters didn’t know “the rules of the game” or where or how they were to vote. Given these ludicrous claims, the CNN anchor rightfully cut off Giron at various points in interview.
Interestingly, the victor Rivera was backed by a grassroots organization in Colorado. Giron, on the other hand, had the backing of national liberal organizations including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg who donated $350,000 to her campaign. While Giron seems to have not gotten the message, hopefully Bloomberg did.
