Mike at Best Destiny has already commented on the story of Colorado Democrats being caught and receiving an unprecedented penalty for illicit 2004 campaign activities, so I can’t add a lot. Kent Lambert of the Republican Study Committee deserves commendation for his perseverance and his thoroughness in pursuing the prosecution of an election law penalty, something with a high burden of proof.
Mike is right – of course, we shouldn’t be surprised. Hugh Hewitt wrote all about it in his 2004 classic, If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat. If you haven’t read it, or need a refresher, pick it up and give it a good perusal before the 2006 elections.
Peter Blake of the Rocky Mountain News brought Lambert’s intriguing story to light, one that nonpartisan political insiders in Colorado would have been intrigued by. But the partisan Democrat Dead Governors – usually reliable sources for bringing attention to inside political information and other lesser-known political stories in the state – must have lost the memo.
Too busy posturing in support of the forever tax increase, I guess.
