“You touch my grandchildren, and I get really angry”

Yesterday at an Independence Institute women’s luncheon, State Sen. Nancy Spence told the crowd (including my wife and several other Institute colleagues) the latest on the investigation re the threatening email she received in April:

A state lawmaker who received an e-mail containing a threat to her grandchildren said Tuesday it was sent from a computer at a metro-area hotel.

Agents from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation reviewed the hotel’s security tape but couldn’t determine the e-mail’s author, said Sen. Nancy Spence, R-Centennial.

The security tape had been improperly inserted, Spence said Tuesday at a political luncheon.

She has vowed to press charges if authorities catch the culprit, who was upset over an education matter at the Capitol.

“You touch my grandchildren, and I get really angry,” Spence told the Independence Institute’s women’s group.

I certainly hope this snafu won’t impede the CBI investigation to catch the person who sent the hateful, obnoxious email. Politics is an ugly enough business without someone using it to issue threats about an official’s children or grandchildren. Go get ’em, CBI!
