Steve House: "It's Who Counts The Votes"

  • 7 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Former Colorado GOP chairman Steve House.

Brought to our attention by the Denver Post’s Justin Wingerter, this is Republican CD-6 congressional candidate Steve House calling for poll watcher volunteers to assist his campaign in November in the likely event he wins the nomination tonight to challenge incumbent Rep. Jason Crow.

The rough quote “it’s not the votes, it’s who counts the votes” is dubiously attributed to Joseph Stalin, and there is only scant evidence that he ever said this or anything similar enough to be attributable. But it does betray a certain…distrust out of the gate for the system which doesn’t seem in good taste for any mainstream candidate. From the point of view of a candidate running for election, we’d say it’s absolutely “the votes” that count, and not–at least not in America–the counting.

But if you don’t have the former, it’s fashionable to complain about the latter.

  1. Following the link  " Learn how to volunteer at http://HouseForColorado.com. "

    takes one to the splash page of the campaign.  If there is any link explaining how to volunteer to be an Election Judge, I'm missing it.  And according to Google, the search "site:houseforcolorado.com "Election Judge" – did not match any documents."

  2. This is not a joke in Mesa County, where our county clerk & recorder may get recalled for incompetence…forgetting to empty a ballot drop-off box, blaming volunteers when the 500+ ballots were found months later, then refusing to count them on grounds they didn't matter. She's turned over some 26 of the 32-person staff she's such a joy to work for. The Secretary of State had to step in and send her an elections supervisor for this primary. Now, if course, the recall effort is all a dastardly Democratic plot.

    Mesa County Polsters: I'm carrying a recall petition so speak up and I'll bring it to you to sign.

     

    1. Good that you are going to help Mesa County Republicans learn how to spell …

      Did someone get a list of the 500+ people who put their ballots in the box and didn't get counted?  Seems like they would be likely to sign a recall petition, whether DEM, REP, or UNA.
