WEDNESDAY UPDATE: 9NEWS’ Kyle Clark gave this the proper treatment last night:
UPDATE: Apparently she means it:
Now would seem to be the time.
Former GOP Colorado Sen. Laura “Waters” Woods of Arvada smells a rat!
It’s possible but unlikely. Just as in CO, we killed all state-wide tax increases but voted in Dems overwhelmingly. Maybe fraudulent ballots only fill in the dots for people but not issues? Seems like voter fraud here too. #VoterID #VoterFraud https://t.co/o8Cgnpu7Sw

If we’re understanding the theory here correctly, because Colorado voters swept Democrats into office at every level while simultaneously voting down the Amendment 73 and Proposition 110 tax increases on the ballot, it “seems like” voter fraud took place in Colorado. This dreadfully oversimplified illogic ignores Colorado’s long history of sending complicated or even contradictory messages at the polls.
Not to mention that Colorado has a Republican Secretary of State who would likely have objected.
But more fundamentally, you just don’t jump to the wild conclusion of “voter fraud” based on something this thin unless you’re completely unhinged to begin with–and during Sen. Woods’ time in the legislature, from baseless warnings of “vaccination roundups” to raging on Planned Parenthood in the wake of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting, she helped anchor the unhinged wing of the GOP Senate caucus. With that in mind, it’s completely in character.
Colorado as we have known and loved it forever will be forever changed. True conservatives who can will move away in the coming

Weeks? Months? Whichever it is, this could be the one way to make everybody happy.
