There’s No Threat To Tina Peters (Except The FBI)

Mike Lindell, Tina Peters.

Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, under criminal investigation over a major breach of election system security in her office that (this goes in the lede of every post now, sorry) did not uncover any evidence of a conspiracy by Dominion Voting Systems to steal the election from Donald Trump, has been in hiding at an undisclosed location provided by “MyPillow Guy” Mike Lindell for over two weeks now. Mesa County’s all-GOP Board of Commissioners issued a public plea this week for Peters to “come home” and cooperate with the investigation.

Lindell asserts that he is hiding Peters out of concerns for her safety after playing a starring if not exactly revealing role at Lindell’s so-called “Cyber Symposium” earlier this month. Looking for more information that could perhaps justify that contention, the Grand Junction Sentinel’s Charles Ashby filed an open-records request for Peters’ emails:

Embattled Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters claims that it isn’t safe for her to come home in the wake of investigations into her potential involvement in a security breach in her elections office, but there is no evidence of any actual threats based on numerous emails she has received over the past two weeks.

The results of a Colorado Open Records Act request of those emails by The Daily Sentinel showed that the preponderance of them, 43 of 65, supported her actions in attempts to demonstrate alleged problems with the Dominion Voting System equipment that Mesa and all but two other Colorado counties have used to tabulate ballots for years.

Only 22 were negative, either calling Peters a moron, a traitor to democracy or asking her to resign her position, many of which were laced with profanity…

One of those latter types of messages, you’ve got to admit, is pretty funny:

“You are going to look great in an orange jumpsuit. Enjoy your time in jail. Hope they give you a Mr. Pillow for your bed in your cell.”

It’s “MyPillow” not “Mr. Pillow,” but close enough.

Lindell says he is covering Clerk Peters’ expenses while she remains in hiding, and has promised to pay for her legal defense in any forthcoming criminal case. That’s probably illegal under Colorado’s Amendment 41, which strictly limits allowable gifts to public officials. But Amendment 41 is small potatoes compared to the only real “threat” to Clerk Peters: being brought to justice by actual law enforcement. The moment a criminal indictment is issued in this case, if Peters does not immediately surrender to the appropriate authorities she’ll be a fugitive from justice–and “MyPillow Guy” will be the harborer of one.

We just feel it should be very clear for the record who Tina Peters is hiding from, and why.

    And Trump doesn't care.  She's on her own now.

      GG: that is a sad fact. So many of these people have literally given their hearts and souls to the corrupt con-man and he doesn't care at all. He wants to be worshipped and that's it.

      • RepealAndReplace says:

        It is truly their own faults. I have no sympathy for any of them. Trump even bragged about how everything is transactional to him. 

        They were all warned by the con artist yet they still signed up.

        • unnamed says:

          Pretty much.   They would drink his kool-aid even if they saw it kill someone if he told them to.

          Things that are obvious don't seem to matter to them.  Supposedly adults can't even think.

            Flavor-Aid.
            Jonestown was Flavor-Aid.

            • kwtree says:

              dave. No one cares. Everyone understands that “drinking the Kool Aid” means believing sweet but empty, possibly poisonous political propaganda.Which was unnamed’s point- Trump Big Lie believers are swallowing propaganda that could kill them, especially if they also believe the anti-vax crap.

              “ Drinking the Flavor-Aid”? Not so much. Try it and enjoy the blank looks. I’m sure you get those often.

                I'm gonna defend Dave on this one. General Foods sure wanted people to know it wasn't their product that was loaded with cyanide and killed all of those poor gullible saps.

              Did Unnamed say one word about Jonestown, Yogi?  Or, anyone else, prior to your non sequitur?

              Try to pay attention, huh?  Today could be Pay Attention Day somewhere — even if it's just here on pols? . . .

        • Diogenesdemar says:

          “Take me in, oh tender woman, take me in . . .”

          How many times did the stubby-fingered Tangerine P*ssy-Grabber literally tell ’em?  

          No sympathy, indeed . . .

    Ah, Tina, so many delusions, so much probable cause.  

  3. RepealAndReplace says:

    Perhaps the Pillow Guy's plane is getting ready to whisk Tina Peters (every time I see that name I picture an old drag queen standing besides her BFF, Tina Dick) to some country which does not have an extradition treaty with the US.

  4. JohnInDenver says:

    I thought I read that the local DA and the state's AG office were also involved.  Presumably, there may be some "threat" there, too.

    • notaskinnycook says:

      Since it was a presidential election, can she be brought up on federal charges for election tampering, and can marshals be dispatched to bring her back here for prosecution?
