Blockhead Republicans Prepare Another Idiotic Recall Attempt

Brittany Pettersen

State Sen. Brittany Pettersen (D-Lakewood)

The big story in Colorado politics this week was the implosion of an asinine recall attempt against Rep. Tom Sullivan (D-Centennial). The Sullivan recall attempt fizzled amid an onslaught of terrible press, bickering over money, and a general sense from everyone with half a brain that this was a stupid idea altogether.

Naturally, this week in politics is coming to a close with ANOTHER absolutely idiotic recall attempt of a sitting lawmaker who was easily elected to office last November. This time, Republicans aren’t trying to recall a man who lost his son in a mass shooting over his support of gun safety legislation, but they found the next-worst look for a recall effort. As Marianne Goodland reports for the publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman:

Republican Nancy Pallozzi says she will mount a recall attempt against state Sen. Brittany Petterson of Lakewood in Senate District 22.

Petterson defeated Pallozzi in a 2016 race for a state House seat by 19 percentage points. [Pols emphasis]

On a closed Facebook page Pallozzi set up for the recall effort, she announced Thursday that “[e]verything is moving along and we are hoping to have the petitions in hand by July 16th, if not sooner. We are finalizing the wording to submit to the secretary of state’s office in July.”

According to the page, the Pettersen recall effort is intended to coordinate with a recall attempt against Democratic Gov. Jared Polis.

You read that correctly, dear readers: The Republican candidate who lost to Pettersen in a State House race by nearly 20 points in 2016 wants to recall her then-opponent, nevermind that Pettersen was swept into a State Senate seat two years later by a 16-point margin.

Republican Nancy “Don’t Call Me Pelosi” Pallozzi believes that Pettersen should be recalled because of…well, there’s probably some sort of reason in there somewhere, but Goodland’s story doesn’t mention anything specific.

WHO DO WE WANT TO RECALL? Brittany Pettersen!


Please clap, or something.

    Ahhh, my state senator is the next target. Dirty Sanchez will not be replacement candidate. Pity!

    I'll bet Dudley and the Nevilles will give her a glowing recommendation of a signature gathering firm that has recently become available!

    Blockhead Republicans

    That's akin to saying "round circles," at least in Pallozzi's case.

    I had to do a double take then check to make sure this wasn't a joke name. Lol.

    I wonder if the "coordinated" petition circulators will get paid for each signature, or if there will be a discount if someone signs both.   I'm assuming the "coordination" required involves juggling two clipboards while in the District 22 boundaries.

    Need to hear from Powerful Pear or Moderatus/PodestaEMails here. I have to admit that I'm puzzled and stumped.

    OK, Petersen is a liberal, although I would not consider her to be of the "flaming type." Especially "not flaming" since she is smart enough to publicly oppose the current Lakewood stupidity known as Question 200.

    What is the purpose of such a recall?

      Well, I think it's _________________, and ____________________, and, most egregiously, _____________________.

        That about sums it up.

        They plan on using the (proposed but abandoned) "sponsored a heroin injection site" bill to portray Pettersen as a drug dealer.  Then there's the "sex education bill", which they will use to portray her as a borderline child molester. I bet you think that I'm joking. However, these tactics did backfire on Tony Sanchez when he tried it last time – leading to many Republicans deciding to vote for Pettersen instead.

        Best thing she could do right now is promote her own narrative, the way Leroy Garcia's doing in SD3, to show all the positive things she's done.

        I may have to volunteer or work against this recall, since I now live in Pettersen's district. I'm still mad at her for backstabbing Senator Aguilar, but I'll tell her that personally, while I make phone calls or knock doors for her.

      "Not Pelosi" is obviously just another sore loser. Once again, I think the right strategy is just to ridicule these clowns. How much money are they going to blow on this exercise in futility, and couldn't it be better used in a swingy district the Dems won by a cat's whisker?

      • RepealAndReplace says:

        Altogether now………..

        [c]ook, let me help you here…

        "Not Pelosi" is obviously just another sore loser. Once again, I think the right strategy is just to ridicule these clowns. How much money are they going to blow to grift on this exercise in futility, and couldn't it be better used in a swingy district the Dems won by a cat's whisker? isn't this just another way to keep the Neville's relevant inside their bubble?

    • Davie says:

      CHB, my guess as to why?  It's probably nothing Pettersen has done in particular — Unless she is independently wealthy, Pea-brain Pallozzi could just be the front person for one of dozens of RWNJs attempting to "punish" Pettersen's husband, ProgressNow's Ian Silverii. 

      Although I suspect it will give them both something to chuckle about instead.

    It seems like anymore every day these days is Recallapalooza in Colorado . . . 

    . . . just another word for Groundhogs Day???

  9. doremi says:

    By the way, Tony Sanchez is an RMGO favorite.  They supported him against Andy Kerr and Brittany Pettersen.  He is an extremist gun nut.  

  10. MADCO says:

    It's a fundraising scam.

    Hey! Everybody look!
    Send me $100 !!
    Do it now! Don't let some bulloney political opposition stop you!

    Later when I withdraw that claim of doing anything – there are other things to do.
