We wanted to briefly note this bizarre little story from the weekend, involving the spokesman for Proposition 102, the “bondsman bailout” initiative and an alleged shoving match with Attorney General John Suthers. To briefly recap, Proposition 102 spokesman Bob Trucker accused Suthers of assault after a League of Women Voters rally. But Trucker’s little attempt at drama appears to have backfired, as KMGH-TV reports:
A lieutenant investigated the allegations and interviewed both Trucker and Suthers as well as several other witnesses at the rally, including one person who came forward with a detailed account after reading about the incident in the paper…
“Neither the video recording nor any of the witness statements supported Trucker’s allegations,” said Eloise Campanella, spokeswoman for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.
Suthers was cleared and Trucker was issued a misdemeanor summons for false reporting to authorities, Campanella said.
…Trucker is the vice chairman of the Adams County Democratic Party and spokesman for Safe Streets Colorado — the organization supporting Proposition 102. Suthers is a Republican running for re-election as attorney general and he opposes Proposition 102.
So, we never thought this “scuffle” with John Suthers was on the level. For one thing, Bob Trucker is a pretty big guy, and Suthers isn’t. Whatever faults Suthers possesses, he just doesn’t strike us as the physical type. And then there’s Bob Trucker–represented everywhere as a “Democratic activist,” and he does indeed appear to hold a position in the Adams County Democrats.
But here’s something we don’t get–the donations of Robert Trucker, vice-chair of the Adams County Democrats, to Tom Tancredo, and Rep. Kevin Priola (R-Adams County).
So, after Trucker gets done with the false reporting charge, maybe he can explain why Proposition 102 hasn’t filed the required disclosures for money spent getting the initiative on the ballot, promotion and advertising costs, office expenses, Trucker’s salary, etc.
After that, he’s probably got some questions from his fellow Democrats to reckon with.
And more are making the switch every day. Maybe it has something to do with rural blue collar Dems being called backward by the feeble mayor of Denver.
I know many, many Democrats who want our border secured. Tancredo is an honest man, whether you like him or not.
And just who are these people who want the Colorado border secured?
Or maybe until you can figure out what “honest” means and which office you’re talking about you should stfu.
With which state? (I favor fencing the one with Oklahoma.)
Mass deportation as well? Cut of all communication… that would be so nice.
I am sick to death of them coming into our state and using our higher ed to post partisan drivel. It’s disgusting.
Especially to the Adams County Dems. Is he making calls for Tank and Priola when they think he is making calls for Hick and Huerta?
He should be removed from his Adams County party office, immediately. I believe that that is in the rules somewhere. Maybe someone has the rules memorized?
Robert’s position with the Adams County Dems is relatively new. It might be interesting to see who he has donated to in previous years.
Maybe there needs to be some background checking before people can take a party office, like who they have donated to etc.
I had to check to make sure that he even was an officer, but he appears to be one.
Marty Wisniewski, the Chair, has his work cut out for him here.
the Tancredo folks may have a problem with their reporting.
I had 57 pesos left over from my last trip to Mexico that I sent to Tancredo, that donation got reported as $57.00.
dude is seriously confused
I’ll bet the Adams County Republicans can help set him straight.
on the Adams county Dems web page about RESTORATION FOUNDATION, INC. I Googled that and couldn’t find anything remotely like what it is described as on bid bio page. Sounds strange to me…
Don’t know what it does, though.
And there’s no financials in Guidestar.
