First let me say plainly and clearly: Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler is corrupt. He meets all 4 primary definitions according to Merriam-Webster (both of whom must have been librul!)
cor·rup·tion noun kə-ˈrəp-shən\
Definition of CORRUPTION
a : impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle : depravity (Check!)
b : decay, decomposition ((Check!)
c : inducement to wrong by improper or unlawful means (Check!)
d : a departure from the original or from what is pure or correct (Check!)
The Denver Post reports on Gessler's ongoing corruption today:
"We have all hands on deck from our IT division," said Andrew Cole, a spokesman for Gessler.
On Monday, the site had 85,000 visits, Cole said, double the daily traffic a week ago and five times the daily number averaged in September.
I'm surprised Gessler didn't outsource IT to India or something...
Tuesday was the last day to register to vote for the Nov. 6 general election, and Democrats angrily complained the website had repeatedly crashed the past several days.
Only Democrats? Is this really a he said/she said problem? No, because the state's county clerks, both Dem and Repub, blasted Gessler a day earlier.
Gessler is a Republican.
If we're using angry adjectives, let's add "corrupt" and "incompetent", eh, Post?
"For months, Secretary of State Gessler has been focused on diversions and purging lawful voters from the rolls instead of doing his job to ensure Coloradans have the opportunity to vote," said Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Rick Palacio.
Lazy, he said/she said reporting by the Post will be rightly criticized.
"Coloradans are potentially being disenfranchised in a historic election because he has not handled the most basic duties of his office."
"Incompetence by elected officials is no justification for denying citizens their right to vote."
Exactly correct. But Gessler's corrupt incompetence is his reason for being, his resume for the next step up the ladder in a dying political party. The Denver Post is giving him a pass because they want to seem impartial. What they don't get is that there is nothing impartial about corrupting Colorado's elections. Gessler's corruption has confused voters and tainted the process and will absolutely, not just "potentially", cause voters to stay home or be unable to vote.
Scott Gessler: Mission Accomplished! The next election has been thrown into question by your abject incompetence and plain-to-see corruption.
