The successful effort to recall both Colorado Senate President John Morse and state senator Angela Giron has reinvigorated Colorado’s gun owners, who are relaunching an effort to recall state senator Evie Hudak and shift the balance of power in the state senate.
A renewed and spirited effort is underway to recall Sen. Evie Hudak, a Democrat from Westminster, less than six months after an initial effort faltered.
Organizers from within Senate District 19 were certified by the secretary of state late Friday to begin gathering signatures to have a recall placed on the ballot. The group, “Recall Hudak, too,” must gather about 18,900 valid signatures within 60 days, and on its website the group even has a running ticker that counts down to the deadline.
“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,” reads an excerpt of the petition language e-mailed by Mike McAlpine, a spokesman for the group.
Hudak is even less sympathetic than Giron and Morse, which is perhaps why the tone of the Denver Post article carried with it a whiff of fear.
Hudak—who’d rather be posting on Facebook and Twitter than doing her job—had became the center of outrage in March when she asserted that it was in rape victim Amanda Collins’s “best interests” that she was unarmed and unable to defend herself against her attacker.
Perhaps if Hudak is successfully recalled, she may more fully enjoy her primary interest in life, her iPad.
