Colorado State Rep. Lori Saine arrested with gun at Denver International Airport

Colorado State Rep. Lori Saine arrested with gun at Denver International Airport

DENVER – Colorado State Rep. Lori Saine, R-Dacono, was arrested Tuesday at Denver International Airport for carrying a weapon in a public transportation facility. Court records and the Denver Police Department confirm Saine's arrest, and DPD said the case will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office to determine if she will face charges.

The pre-filed charge is a sixth-degree felony, introduction of a firearm into a transportation facility.
Requests for comment made to Saine and House Republican leadership were not immediately returned.
Saine was the primary sponsor of a bill in the 2017 legislative session that would have repealed the prohibition of high-capacity magazines for certain guns, and which would have eliminated a ban on so-called “gravity knives.”

The bill died after it was introduced in committee. Saine sits on the House Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources; Legislative Council; and Legislative Audit committees.


Meanwhile, in Greeley, we are awaiting tonight's city council meeting that will deal with, among other things, whether the candidate who lied about a felony conviction will be seated anyway.

Former Colorado GOP chairman accused of voter fraud blames diabetic episode in Weld District Court

A former Colorado GOP chairman accused of committing voter fraud during the 2016 election filled out his ex-wife's ballot during a major diabetic episode, according to his attorney.

Steve Curtis, 57, who from 1997-99 served as chairman of the Colorado Republican Party, is charged with one count of voter-fraud and one count of forgery, after prosecutors say he filled out and mailed in the ballot of his ex-wife, Kelly Curtis, from his Firestone home in fall 2016. After a day of jury selection Monday, attorneys delivered their opening arguments in his trial about 11 a.m. this morning, during which Curtis' attorney, Christopher Gregory, told the jury Curtis had lived with type one diabetes for about 30 years, and was prone to serious diabetic episodes.
. . .

...she and Curtis separated in December 2015, and she later moved out to Charleston, S.C. where she tried to register to vote for the 2016 election. She had missed the deadline, though, and was told to call Colorado.
By the time she spoke to employees of the Weld County Clerk and Recorder's office, she said, Steve Curtis had already cast her vote.

When words have power ---

The Assault on Emma Lazarus and Her Children

How like the wondrous giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
No weeping woman with a torch, my flame
Is the assaultive lightning, and my name
BIRTHER OF EXILES. From my bronze-spiked head
Glows world-wide disdain; my wild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Bring, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” I smile
With violent lips. “Create more tired and poor,
And huddled masses never to breathe free,
The wretched refuse from our teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed away,
I turn my key and lock the golden door!”

~Steve Monhollen, retired First Congregational Minister
He calls it his lament on the passage of the tax bill.

And they just applauded themselves

for passing a cesspool of a bill.

I miss my parents. But I'm glad they aren't alive to see what has become of the republican party they believed in.
