Campaign to recall Co. Senate Pres. Leroy Garcia fails, decides not to turn in all of its signatures

The campaign to recall Colorado Senate President Leroy Garcia failed on Friday afternoon after the group decided to turn in just a fraction of the signatures that they collected.

Friday was the recall campaign’s deadline to turn in 13,506 valid signatures from voters in the Pueblo Democrat’s Senate District 3 to force a special election to try and oust Garcia.

The campaign delivered some signatures — 120 at most, they said — to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office in a pair of cardboard Budweiser boxes. (Elections officials said there were actually only four signatures in the boxes.)

Dave DeCenzo, a recall organizer, said the group is withholding the rest of the collected signatures out of “fear of voter intimidation.”

“We are submitting a small number of petitions in protest of the voter intimidation that we experienced,” DeCenzo said. “We promised our circulators that we would submit, and we did.”
