Sen. Holbert Yucks It Up Over Kavanaugh Rape Allegation

UPDATE: The Colorado Senate GOP is responding to Bente Birkeland’s story, and it’s a disaster: Colorado Senate Republicans today raised objections to a Colorado Public Radio report, appearing Tuesday, that falsely suggested Senate Majority Leader Chris Holbert and other lawmakers made jokes on social media about allegations of sexual misconduct that have emerged in the […]

Post-Holbert Coverup, Take Two on Baumgardner Expulsion

As the Denver Post reports, the new recently-exposed additional confirmation of serial sexual harassment by GOP Sen. Randy “Boob Grabber” Baumgardner is moving Senate Democrats to once again attempt a late resolution to expel Baumgardner from the chamber–a move likely to be killed by GOP Senate leadership, which appears to have cast any pretense of […]

Holbert stands behind statement likening Hick actions to spousal abuse

(Stay classy, Rep. Holbert – promoted by Colorado Pols) In a Facebook posting yesterday, state Republican Rep. Chris Holbert wrote that Gov. John Hickenlooper "treats us like we are his abused spouse." In explaining why he'd vote for gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez, Holbert wrote in response to a Facebook post of one of Holbert's Facebook […]

Treasurer Stapleton: Having Enacted SB10-001, the Colorado Legislature will Continue to Break Colorado PERA Pension Contracts as Needed. Comments from Priola, Labuda, DelGrosso, Holbert, Kerr, Hullinghorst, Swalm, and Kefalas.

TREASURER STAPLETON: THERE WAS NO "ACTUARIAL EMERGENCY" IN 2010 WHEN SB10-001 WAS ENACTED BY THE COLORADO LEGISLATURE. COMMENTS OF COLORADO PERA DIRECTOR WILLIAMS, PERA TRUSTEE CAROLE WRIGHT, PERA GENERAL COUNSEL SMITH, AND TREASURER STAPLETON. In 2010, the Colorado Legislature enacted legislation breaking Colorado PERA pension contracts.  Members of the Colorado Legislature, generally, have little respect […]

Radio show illuminates, that, for GOP, the road to diversity is rough

On KLZ’s Grassroots Radio Colorado , State Representatives Chris Holbert and newly elected Justin Everett said they and their allies have no interest in compromising on civil unions during the upcoming legislative session.

A caller asked the two GOP lawmakers, who was guest-hosting for regulars Jason Worley and Ken Clark, if the new Republicans at the state Capitol would fight harder against civil unions.

“I think that you’ll find that this incoming class is fairly well aligned against that,” replied Holbert. “However…we are in the minority, and I think that you’ll see the majority party move very quickly to pass that type of legislation.”

Holbert’s answer is no surprise, because most new Republican lawmakers, like them, are from safe Republican areas, which wouldn’t be expected to produce moderates.

The incoming Republicans aren’t as old as the people they replaced, Holbert pointed out on air, but they’re mostly ideologically similar.

And here’s the ironic part: the next day on the same radio show, representatives of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives and the Libre Initiative spent two hours  talking about how important it is for the GOP in Colorado to diversify.

The good folks on Grassroots Radio should ask themselves how they can possibly diversify the Republican Party if their leaders won’t budge on something like civil unions.

‘It’s water vapor’: More GOP climate denial precedes Colorado greenhouse gas bill’s passage

It’s Official: The “Kia Challenge” Inflated The GOP “Crimenado”

Among the many social ills weaponized by Republicans for electoral gain last year (albeit ineffectively) was an undeniable increase in auto thefts, seized upon by Republicans along with the general uptick in property crimes over the past couple of years as evidence of Democratic mismanagement. The causes of increased criminal activity after decades of decline […]

From Major Media Outlet To Personal Vendetta Machine

A substantial portion of the 2022 session of the Colorado legislature has been dominated by debate over policy to address the particularly dangerous synthetic opioid drug fentanyl, which has been responsible for an escalating overdose and death rate for nearly a decade as this cheap and powerful drug is smuggled in large quantities into the […]

GOP Rep. Sandridge Strikes Back Against Fentanyl Fearmongering

UPDATE: Here’s an example of the kind of misinformation Rep. Shane Sandridge is denouncing his fellow Republicans for: We’d say it’s time for an intraparty conference call. —– As Republicans in Colorado have ruthlessly attacked Democrats over the past few months over perceived rising crime rates, exploiting a complicated nationwide issue for oversimplified-at-best local political […]
