The Colorado Secretary of State’s office on Wednesday informed Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters and state Rep Ron Hanks that they won’t be conducting a recount in either the Republican Secretary of State or US Senate primaries the two lost, respectively, as both failed to come up with the $236,000 fee by July 15th to re-tabulate the votes in each contest, the AP reports.
Evidently none of their fans cared enough about a “rigged primary” enough to pitch in the cash needed to prove the primary was rigged. Very sad. Also actually kind of sad and we should have reported here earlier is that Peters’ arrest warrant was rescinded last Friday after one of Peters’ attorneys admitted he made a mistake and had not fully informed Peters she was no longer permitted to leave the state without express permission from the court. Which kind of sucks.
