There are some people out there saying recalls are a waste of time,” Republican State House Leader Patrick Neville told KNUS 710-AM host Chuck Bonniwell yesterday.
To which Bonniwell asked, “Who are the people who say you are wasting your time?”
Bonniwell then alleged that Colorado Politics reporter Marianne Goodland said that State Senate Republican Minority Leader Chris Holbert is against recall campaigns.
Bonniwell asked Neville yesterday if this was true.
“I don’t know if he’s against recalls or not,” replied Neville, who’s set up a website to support efforts to recall Democrats from office in Colorado.
It turns out, Goodland actually told Bonniwell on air that Holbert and Neville “differ a great deal on the issue of recalls,” not that Holbert opposed them per se.
For the record, Holbert told the Colorado Times Recorder that he is “neither for nor against” recalls.
“That’s up to people in local districts,” he said. “And I’m not for them or against them. I don’t have a position for or against.”
