| Scott Levin at Westword has been covering one of the nation's most partisan and incompetent Secretaries of State - Colorado's own Scott Gessler - for months.
If it weren't borderline felonious it would be hard not to laugh at the idiotic statements and blatant lies and wasteful actions Gessler has perpetrated on the citizens of Colorado.
Here's the latest from the nation's most incompetent and biased SoS:
In the final weeks of the campaign, as we reported earlier today, Secretary of State Scott Gessler has continued his controversial anti-fraud campaign by tracking down individuals he believes are illegally registered to vote, because they are immigrants. Gessler sent them letters to 300 people asking them to verify their citizenship -- and yesterday, we reached one legal citizen who got the letter and is not happy about it, in part because he himself has done advocacy work around voter participation.
Alan Kaplan, 35, has been a citizen since 2001. But since a database of the Department of Homeland Security has him listed as an immigrant, he is one of 441 registered voters in Colorado that Gessler's office believes are illegally registered and would therefore be committing fraud if they voted on November 6. The letters are part of a larger effort from Gessler's office to eliminate fraud, which includes crosschecks with a federal database that critics fear is unreliable.
Again, Sam only goes so far in his conclusions to the undeniable facts of the situation. It wasn't only "critics" who feared the database was unrealiable, it was the DHS itself that warned of problems with the data.
But Gessler continued on and, playing against type, decided to trust Obama's DHS and use the potentially invalid data to pursue his strategy of purging as many Democratic leaning voters from the rolls as possible.
What did he get? Garbage data used to further intimidate legal voters. He got massive waste of taxpayer resources to weed out a possible .004% of our 3.5 Million voters. And he earned a reputation as just one more petty, partisan, biased, incompetent and cheap Republican public servants who puts Republicans ahead of the Public every chance he gets.
