Colorado voters go after third state Senator

Gun rights activists have received permission from the Colorado State Attorney General's office, to start gathering signatures to recall a third senator, Evie Hudak. This comes on the heels of two successful recalls just last month. A win here would turn the state senate over to the republicans.

The petitoners need 18,900 signatures in order to force a recall election. Mike McAlpine, a spokesman for the group emailed the Denver Post with the following statement:

“She has infringed upon our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. She has voted to make all citizens less safe and to drive hundreds of jobs from Colorado.”

In May, another group tried and failed to get enough signatures for a recall of Hudak. After two successful recalls, organizers believe the time is ripe to try again. They have 60 days in order to place a recall on the ballot. Hudak is no stranger to contraversy, after making herself look foolish, while questioning Amanda Collins, a rape victim.

Ms Collins said that if she had her gun, she could have protected herself. Hudak countered by saying that the odds were not in her favor and that she would have had the gun taken away from her.

"I just want to say that, actually, statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun...And chances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you."

The GOP win in the recalls narrowed the Democratic majority to 18-17, making it difficult, if not impossible, to continue the radical agenda that has led to two recalls and possibly a third as well as having 11 counties wanting to secede from the state.
