The Knives Come Out For Cynthia Coffman

UPDATE: Freelance reporter Sandra Fish firms up the propriety of “Questioning Coffman,” which lead Team Stapleton operative Andy George apparently made little attempt to conceal:

The group registered in mid-March, so won’t have to report where the money is coming from until May 7. But the address listed for the group in corporate documents is a home owned by Better Colorado Now director Andy George.

And there you have it, folks.

GOP operative and director of Walker Stapleton’s “independent” SuperPAC, Andy George, directs us to an opposition research dump website targeting Stapleton’s mortal enemy for the next 72 hours–Attorney General Cynthia Coffman:

“Questioning Coffman’s” summary of AG Coffman’s record appears aimed squarely at conservative Republicans:

Will Cynthia Coffman stand up for your religious liberties?

Probably not. Coffman has taken a “moderate“ stance on religious liberty in the state. As Attorney General, Cynthia Coffman refused to defend the religious liberty rights of bakers who had a conscientious objection to making a cake for a gay wedding!

Coffman’s support for the Civil Rights Commission suit is troubling because as the highest law-enforcement officer in the state, short of the Governor, Coffman has failed to defend our religious liberties.

Will Cynthia Coffman fix our broken immigration system?

Probably not. She’s consistently proven herself with record of problematic immigration positions!

She refused to join other state Attorney Generals in the DACA Suit Against Obama. When President Trump issued a travel ban from countries that have large numbers of terrorist, Attorney General Coffman refused to come out in support of the ban.

Coffman continued to distance herself from strong immigration enforcement laws. Cynthia Coffman supports providing amnesty for illegal aliens. When strong illegal immigration opponent Jan Brewer came to Colorado for an event with Cynthia Coffman, the Attorney General said that she did not support Brewer’s immigration enforcement agenda.

Will Cynthia Coffman defend life?

Probably not…

Although Andy George “breaking” the existence of this site makes it likely this was whipped up by Team Stapleton, that’s not 100% provable at first glance. The “independent” group Real Colorado Conservatives responsible for this site registered on March 15 with its stated purpose “TO OPPOSE CYNTHIA COFFMAN AND EVERY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR.” Whoever created the site, from now through Saturday’s Republican state assembly we do expect that everyone supporting Stapleton will be spreading its contents.

Stapleton’s foremost goal at the state assembly is to hold Coffman below the 30% threshold required for her to appear on the June primary ballot, and these are the exact points necessary to communicate to the GOP base to make it impossible for them to support her. The likelihood of such an attack is why Coffman never intended to go through the assemblies–only doing so belatedly after it became clear she didn’t have the resources to mount a successful petition campaign.

As of now, it’s less likely than ever that Cynthia Coffman’s campaign for governor lives to see Sunday morning.

    Moddy, they're trashing your babe! Actually, this makes me think she is a fine AG.  Go, Taller Coffman!

    • ModeratusModeratus says:

      Obviously Colorado Pols is helping spread this because it suits their purposes. Democrats are afraid of Cynthia Coffman. You'll breathe a sigh of relief if she is kept off the ballot and everybody knows it.

        Funny ISP Boy.  I don't know it.  V doesn't know it.  V's parakeet know that nobody is afraid of Cynthia Coffman and V's parakeet is dead. 


        BTW, have the proof that Obama illegally obtained private voter data to win elections?

        • ModeratusModeratus says:

          Like I said, Facebook gave Obama the data because they are partisan Dhimmicrats.

          • unnamed says:

            Show me the proof ISP boy.

              The North Carolina lawmaker then cited a former Obama campaign staffer’s tweet, which was sent after the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, and recounted how Facebook employees were surprised by the breadth of user data the campaign was able to scrape, but let them continue to do so because of their shared political leanings.

              “I also believe that that person who may have looked the other way when the whole social graph was extracted for the Obama campaign, if they are still working for you, they probably should not,” Tillis scolded. “At least there should be a business code of conduct that says that you do not play favorites. You are trying to create a fair place for people to share ideas.”

              • unnamed says:

                So, a right winger has it from a right wing source.  And did Obama employ people from a country who is an adversary the way CA did?

                Also, do you have info from a non-partisan source?

              • mamajama55mamajama55 says:

                There is plenty to be mad at Zuckerberg about. If you were one of the 87 million whose data was "scraped", Facebook sold all your friends, likes/ dislikes, your posts, and your private messages to Cambridge Analytica, the company started by Steve Bannon. Awesome.

                He is the quintessential nerd who can't see the forest for the trees.

      • DavieDavie says:

        Sorry, Moldy, but it seems the only one that fears Cynthia is Dubya Stapleton.  But I gotta hand it to you Repugs — when it comes to cowardly dirty tricks, you guys take the cake!

      • marklane1351 says:

        Democrats dream of Cynthia Coffman being the nominee for governor. We had pinned our hopes on The Tanc, but Cynthia Coffman has proven she is more than capable of saying stupid things on a regular basis!

    No good deed goes unpunished…

    I almost feel sorry for Moddy's girlfriend. She marches in the gay pride parade and doesn't protected a bigoted baker, and now she's accused of being a closet Democrat.

    Oh the horror, the horror…


  3. MADCO says:

    Governor Coffman.
    We all should just start practicing it now.  It so obvious, Colorado needs a woman governor, and Colorado is ready for a woman governor.  When she's the nominee, she carries the middle.  Game over, man.

    If we end up with a Republican governor, we could do worse than Cindy; especially now that she's shed of Mike.
