► Where is Tina Peters?
That’s the question everybody is asking lately about the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder who is facing multiple investigations over a breach of election security in May. Peters might be hiding out in Texas at the moment, harbored (at least in part) by “MyPillow Guy” Mike Lindell.
In related news, former Republican Secretary of State Wayne Williams thinks Peters should resign from her position, but the State Republican Party in Colorado can’t figure out what to say:
Former Secretary of State Wayne Williams is the most prominent Republican to call for Peters’ resignation. The @cologop has not responded when asked if Peters should step down. #copolitics #9News https://t.co/jkVLpyZD8g

► Yahoo! reports on new polling related to the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan:
Amid the swift and sudden collapse of Afghanistan this week — and widespread coverage of the chaos that has engulfed the war-weary country as the Taliban seized control again — support for both the long-planned withdrawal of U.S. forces and for President Biden’s handling of foreign policy has declined significantly, according to a new Yahoo News poll.
At the same time, more Americans still favor the U.S. withdrawal than oppose it — and there are early signs that the political fallout for the president could be limited in the long run. [Pols emphasis]
Biden’s polling slide on foreign policy is largely due to unease from Republican voters.
► Colorado organizations are preparing to assist in relocating Afghan refugees to our state.
► The 2022 election is fast approaching, so why do Colorado Republicans STILL not have serious candidates for most of the major statewide races on the ballot next November?
► Congressperson Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert (R-ifle) continues to use her campaign account as her own personal slush fund. Federal investigators are looking into some strange reimbursements from her last campaign finance report.
The husband of Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert made $478,000 last year as a consultant for an energy firm, information that was not disclosed during Boebert’s congressional campaign and only reported in her financial disclosure forms filed this week. https://t.co/PWgp7V4Fau

Let’s not make any effort to come up with new explanations here. There is a term for this already: It’s called “lying.”
