When asked how the vote was suppressed, he noted “we didn’t have any mail-in ballots.”

“And the clerk in the area set the voting time such that it was very difficult for working people to vote. They had 11 hours total to vote that wasn’t between 8:00 and 5:00 Monday through Friday. And so they had Thursday, Friday, Monday, and then Election Day on Tuesday, and Tuesday the polls were open from 7:00 to 7:00,” Morse continued.

“But on those other days, they were open to 8:00 to 5:00 and they were open on Saturday from 8:00 to 5:00. So, they got those hours and they got the hours from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. But 70 percent of Coloradans vote by mail-in ballot. And in this case, they got the mail-in ballot squashed, so that nobody got to use a mail-in ballot.”

Of course there was voter suppression.
Out of state college students we not allowed to fraudulently vote and neither were the dead. Liberals, commies and pinkos were only allowed to vote once.
How are Democrats supposed to win under those circumstances?
Talk about your disparate impact...

Sir--

You have no idea how difficult it is for a dead person to vote other than by mail-in ballots. The history of discrimination against the dead in this country is disgraceful. Shame on you for your insensitivity. Shame.

"When asked how the vote was suppressed, he noted 'we didn’t have any mail-in ballots.'"

Hey, genius, not having mail-in ballots is not a form of voter suppression. While voting is right, voting by mail is a privilege that can be revoked at any time. If your supporters were too lazy to get out of bed to got to a poll to vote for you that's an indictment on your supporters, not on the process of voting.

Maybe next time you won't use a single tragic event to restrict the rights of millions of people who had nothing to do with that event.

Morse says, "You got to reload after cranking out 15 rounds."

The idiot fails to comprehend 3d printers and the Internet.

"you see they only got 9,100 votes turned out. They actually didn’t do a very good job of this at all. What they were able to do was to suppress the vote overall."

What he says is true. The Dems nationally have the exclusive use and benefit of the tech geniuses like Brin and Zuckerberg to reach their targeted voters. We don't have anything approaching that sophistication in reaching ours. The abysmal turnout for conservatives killed Romney in '12 against the most beatable, inept, unfit person to occupy the office in my 67 years. .

"I don’t think Colorado is going to want to do politics the way now"

I guess he wasn't paying attention when California dot.com billionaires pushing a gay rights agenda in Co. swept into the state with the specific intent of up-ending Colorado's conservative politics. Those guys didn't do enough damage to California to suit them; they had to come to Co. and spread their liberal toxin.

In Colorado, they call that "Californication"

So did these people get tarred and feathered and forced to ride a rail? Because that's the traditional, dignified exit plan for enemies of freedom. In these latter times, they just whine and lie and fester. I like civilization, and wish we still were one.

The Democrats love mail-in ballots because they're unsecured -- we've had two instances of voter fraud in the past decade in the Texas county I'm in, both involving mail fraud in Democratic primaries, where people would make sure mail ballots were sent to the homes of elderly voters who they knew, and they would then go to those people's homes and 'help' them vote.

It's a far bigger problem than people falsifying their identities and voting in-person, because with the mail ballots, one person who knows enough elderly or disabled people can vote for their preferred candidates dozens of times.

There's a reason SEIU really wants to represent all the nursing home and adult day care and assistance employees. SEIU members just ever so helpfully assist dementia patients with their voting.

The notice was so short, they voted before their out-of-country voters arrived on their buses.

There were the same amount of hours for both sides. How is that suppression?

They didn't get the result they wanted. It really is just that simple. They just consider it to be rude if you put it in those terms. Con artists really hate it when things are reduced to simple English. Even LIV's and morons can then see the Con, and the Con is only useful when it can't be seen.

Do I smell a lawsuit coming? After all, the standard Progressive response to voter outcomes they don't like is to get some Federal Judge to invalidate the decision on some dubious ground. I haven't heard the word "racism" yet but I'm sure that they will work it in somehow. If they can just do that they've got a winner. The Race Card beats a royal flush each and every time.

The playbook is to claim frauds when they lost to insensitize voters when they committed real frauds.

There are those buzzwords again: "Sensible," "common sense," "the right thing to do." What a load of bovine fecal material. This is what we hear every single time liberals want to neuter the constitution. If he wanted to keep his job, he should have listened to his constituents instead of behaving like a Nazi. Mr. Morse, have fun on unemployment - I hope you learned something.

His every claim about the legislation is false. The magazine ban didn't make anyone "reload" after 15 rounds. It simply banned the production of new magazines of greater than that number (a number not matched in any other state so manufacturers either had to make special magazines just for Colorado or Colorado gun owners would be stuck with some other states' limit). The background check bill crimminalized a lot of innocent conduct like loaning a friend a firearm outside some very narrow, felony entrapment exceptions.

And Morse ignores that he tried to introduce a bill that conflicted with Federal law trying to hold gun manufacturers liable for all criminal conduct. He could not even get enough Democrat votes for that bill.

He earned recall.
