Tea Party / Birther Congressman Mike Coffman just released a new ad which crossed the farthest line known in politics — falsely associating Joe Miklosi’s name with child molesters.
The ad is so outrageous, the Fraternal Order of Police sent an unsolicited letter of outrage condemning the Congressman’s vile and disgusting commercial.
Colorado Fraternal Order of Police Denounces Mike Coffman’s Slanderous and False attacks against Joe Miklosi:
To the Citizens of Colorado’s 6th Congressional District,
On June 25th the Fraternal Order of Police announced its endorsement of 6th Congressional District candidate Joe Miklosi for the United States Congress. The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn
law enforcement officers, with more than 330,000 members nationwide. Across our state the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police represents over 5,000 sworn law enforcement officers. We are the voice of those who dedicate their lives protecting and serving Colorado communities. The Fraternal Order of Police is very proud to reiterate its endorsement of 6th Congressional District candidate Joe Miklosi for the United States Congress.
Joe’s opponent is running distasteful and grossly misleading commercials suggesting that Joe has jeopardized the safety of Colorado children. That assertion is totally false. We find it unfortunate Joe’s opponent would use such deceptive advertising. Joe is a thoughtful and responsible legislator with a solid record of support for the public’s safety. We have worked with Joe during his tenure serving the citizens of Colorado in the General Assembly on matters of importance to the safety of the public. We have no doubt that Joe is concerned about keeping our communities safe. He un-questionably understands the issues surrounding public safety. He is a proven staunch supporter of law enforcement and the safety of the public, and we are proud to support him.
Electing the right person to serve in the US Congress is a serious responsibility, one that is tremendously important to the citizens of Colorado. Joe Miklosi’s history of commitment to public service, secure communities, and fairness has earned him this valuable endorsement. The Colorado Fraternal Order of Police believes Joe Miklosi is undoubtedly the best candidate for this office to resolve the serious issues facing our great nation.

Jessica’s Law is the informal name given to a 2005 Florida law, as well as laws in several other states, designed to protect potential victims and reduce a sexual offender’s ability to re-offend. A version of Jessica’s Law, known as the Jessica Lunsford Act, was introduced at the federal level in 2005 but was never enacted into law by Congress.
As a Children’s Rights Activist who has donated thousands of hours to several organizations for efforts that help children, I am one of many people who believe Jessica’s Laws are usually well-intentioned but create more problems than they solve. Joe Miklosi needs to respond to Coffman’s outrageous ad, and he needs to do it now.
