Bradford hanging in, staying on...for now.

  • 15 Comments
  • by: Pita

In what appears at first blush from headline to the last quarter of the story, a rehash of the rift between Bradford and McNulty, we find out that Bradford is staying on for now.

http://www.gjsentinel.com/news…

According to the Sentinel’s Charles Ashby,

…Bradford plans to defend herself before that ethics panel and challenge the traffic citations issued by Denver police.

She also decided she won’t become a Democrat or resign her seat.

“That’s completely off the table,” Bradford said in an interview. “Now, I want the ethics committee to do its work, and when I’m exonerated by them, we’ll see what happens next.”

While Bradford hasn’t yet decided if she’ll leave the party, her husband already has.

Along the way to finding out Bradford’s latest decision, we find out she’s the unofficial leader of the House chorus but decided not to take part in singing Happy Birthday on McNulty’s 39th birthday; that her husband had helped influence her into staying Republican for now and then stopped into Mesa County Elections on Friday and changed to Unaffiliated stating: “This was the last straw.”

So now we wait, I suppose, until the ethics committee meets to see what knew twists and turns the Laura saga takes.  Meanwhile, the leg. is in session and bills are being heard without the usual airing and public discussion here or in the mainstream news.

  1. She is doing good here (aside from the smashed elephant on the floor). Do not be hasty. The session is just getting started and a few days more won’t hurt.  

  2. By not making a move on Wednesday or Thursday the Democrats in the House blew their chance to at least have a more moderate Speaker to work with.  Frank keeps the gavel.  

      1. Good one! According to the Ashby story, Laura said that in any vote she first checks her conscience, then what her constituents think, then what the caucus wants. That does sound pretty ethical to me, but then I’m not a Republican.

  3. her description of her voting process sounds right to me. I have disagreed with her on many things, and don’t share her ideology, yet I believe her to be a person of integrity and someone who listens to her district and often finds it at odds with leadership.

  4. One that i am aware of, is Angela William’s bill on foreclosure counseling. Leadership eventually killed it in Approps, but she helped get it out of LG and even encouraged Schwartfeger to vote for it, in spite of leadership opposition. there are more examples as well.

    1. Anything else you can share would be good. Those of us who never heard her name a week ago could use it to help get an idea of who she is, and understand whether or not she’s being truthful when she says her woes are coming from a vengeful leadership.
