I received the following report concerning the latest meeting of the Denver Metro Young Republicans:
Karen Bauer, one of three people removed from President Bush’s Social Security meeting posed as a Rocky Mountain News journalist while grilling Jay Bob Klinkerman at a regular meeting of the Denver Metro Young Republicans. Klinkerman is chair of the Colorado Young Republicans, a group unaffiliated with the Denver Metro Young Republicans.
Ann Imse, staff writer for the Rocky Mountain News and photographer Evan Semon, escorted Bauer into the meeting.
“They were waiting in the restaurant area until our meeting began. They then joined our meeting in progress in a private room. They declined signing our guest form or to introduce themselves which is standard at our meetings,” said Jude Sandvall, President of the Denver Metro Young Republicans.
It was only discovered after the harsh questioning of Klinkerman that Bauer was not a reporter and that she had shown up with Imse to intentionally confront the Young Republican chair.
“The sad thing is that we have enjoyed a great relationship with the press media in the past. Ann Imse’s behavior is beyond our worst expectations in her attempt at deception. I’m truly disappointed with the Rocky Mountain News,” concluded Sandvall.
The Denver Metro Young Republicans have been meeting at On the Border Cantina for more than 7 years on the 4th Tuesday every month at 6:30pm. They are independent from any State or National Young Republican organization and have been in continuous existence for more than 40 years in the Denver Metropolitan region.
Sorry to see the media has to use fraudulent and paranoid tactics to infiltrate the Young Republicans, the “nerve center” of the vast right-wing conspiracy.
Thanks to Jay Klinkerman, current chair of the Colorado Federation of Young Republicans, for providing the shocking story.
