Recall organizer, “Waters,” abandons radio name to run for State Senate as “Woods”

(Um, okay… – promoted by Colorado Pols)

One of the leaders and spokespeople of the campaign to recall State Sen. Evie Hudak was a woman allegedly named Laura Waters.

During the height of the Hudak recall campaign, "Waters" was on 710 KNUS Peter Boyles show almost daily, attacking Hudak and whipping up the radio crowd to join the recall fight.

Now "Waters" is running for Hudak's former Colorado Senate seat, SD 19, now occupied by State Sen. Rachel Zenzinger. She's battling Lang Sias, who lost to Hudak in 2012.

But she's no longer calling herself "Laura Waters." She's referring to herself as "Laura Woods."

Regular Boyles listeners like me were confused, and Boyles didn't explain things. So to fill in the media gap, I called Waters/Woods to find out what's up.

"There’s no secret to it," Woods told me last week. "It’s just protection of family because of what went on down in Pueblo with those recalls. And I didn’t want to put my at risk then. But you can’t run for office under a different name.”

Woods didn't offer specifics on what happened, security-wise, in Pueblo that frightened her.

Woods has the endorsement, over her primary opponent Sias, of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, which worked closely with Hudak recall organizers last year.

    Nothing happened in Pueblo that harmed any recall organizers. Anti-recall organizers were harassed and intimidated. Woods/ Water's statement is more bogus victimhood crap.

      So lets get this straight. Woods is her legal name and therefore the one she needs to campaign under?  So it was her vicious attack dog persona who had the phony name?  Figures. Was a future run on her mind, rather than security issues, when she decided to mount the recall as someone named Waters? So she could be as nasty as she wanted to be as Waters and then pursue political ambitions under her real name, Woods?

        Probably. 

        To be fair, poor Mr. Head does read Colorado Pols, or his friends do,  (see Feb 7 statuses on Head's FB page) and they are quite irate about accusations of "lying".

         Translation: they prefer that the public not know that they are lying. 

        So Ms. Woods is also worried that her lies and machinations may be exposed to the light.

    Stupid is as stupid does. Any name ID she had with the gunnutz from being on the radio during the recall campaign is now flushed.

      You're right of course. Silly of me to see any possible strategery in her irrational stupid behavior.

      Actually, the nutbags are the folks who'd relate most to her "tale of two Lauras" as they all believe the gubmint/illuminati/new world order/aliens are out to hunt them down.  It will be interesting to see if she can beat Sias and then get the opportunity to explain her paranoia to us norms.

    The Gunorrhea is strong in this one.
