Colorado Springs, CO, May14, 2013, Basic Freedom Defense Fund (BFDF) A Colorado grassroots group is heading the recall of State Senate President John Morse (D) Colorado Springs, for his “…aggressive attacks and for actively leading legislating against the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights”–Anthony Garcia, BFDF spokesman. (www.bfdf.org)
According to Garcia–”Personnel working for BFDF to help collect signatures for Senator Morse’s recall were the subject of known erroneous radio attack ads for the Morse political machine headed by Ed Hall, Chairman of the Denver Democrats and the filing agent for a recently established Morse anti-recall group called “A Whole Lot of People for John Morse.”
Hall is known for referring to Colorado’s second-largest city, Colorado Springs, as a “…right-wing, religious whack-job stronghold.” on his Democratic Party website biography.*
Thousands of concerned and outraged Colorado registered voters in Morse’s district have already signed petitions to get the recall of Morse on the next ballot. BFDF staffers expect to gather far more signatures for Morse’s recall than are necessary.
Unhappy former supporters of Senator Morse have reported to BFDF that they are now on the receiving end of robo calls asking for support of Morse in this early stage of the recall effort.
Early in 2013, New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg – a staunch opponent of individual citizen firearm ownership and pro big government mayor – paid for and imported legal mercenaries and lobbyists into Colorado to attack the 2nd Amendment and citizen firearm ownership in the state.
Additionally Bloomberg’s operation hired a Colorado consulting firm to lobby for anti-2nd Amendment laws in the state. “BFDF expects that Bloomberg money will try to keep Morse in office during the recall effort as a reward for Morse’s anti-2nd Amendment activities.
Morse has made it very clear he is a servant of Bloomberg.”–Anthony Garcia, BFDF spokesperson.
