Among the celebrants last Tuesday night at the Stargazer Theater in Colorado Springs, where Senator-elect Bernie Herpin claimed victory over Senate President John Morse, was a face our readers will recognize:
The hirsute Basic Freedom Defense Fund activist in the left of the above image is none other than Nick Andrasik, a former spokesman for the recall campaign against Senate President John Morse–before that campaign was ready for prime time. Our readers will probably better recognize some other photos of Mr. Andrasik from his days as BFDF spokesman:
And who can forget Andrasik's so-colorful descriptions of female Democratic legislators during the debate over gun safety legislation in the Colorado General Assembly this year:
During the legislative debates surrounding high-capacity magazines, he had this to say about Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora: "Fields back up, being a vacuous cunt as usual."
On Rep. Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood: "Rep Pettersen asking about more limitations – she's a stunning cunt."
After Andrasik's unserious appearance and nasty remarks about female Democrats leaked out of the pro-gun message forums he inhabited, he was unceremoniously replaced in his capacity as BFDF spokesperson by the lovely and gracious Jennifer "CAPartyGirl" Kerns (and we know how that worked out). It's a shame that the net result of the SD-11 recall, a narrow win, will likely obscure from the permanent record just how incompetent the spokespeople for the pro-recall campaign really were.
As for Andrasik? He's the one smiling now, you bunch of c-words.
