Recall Polis People Ask for More Time to Fail

When last we caught up with efforts to “recall” Governor Jared Polis and Secretary of State Jena Griswold, the crack grassroots organization pushed by right-wing activist Lori Cutunilli was trying to entice people into the depths of an underground parking garage with vague promises of booting one or more statewide elected Democratic officials out of office.

We’re checking back on the subject now because it has been 60 days since the “Recall Polis-Griswold” group began gathering petition signatures for the latest iteration of this particular lost cause. Today, April 25, the “Recall Polis-Griswold” committee was supposed to officially submit a minimum of 630,000 petition signatures in order to trigger a recall election for Polis and/or Griswold. Based on the following message posted to Facebook today by Cutunilli, it seems unlikely that anyone will be marching into the Secretary of State’s office with anything other than lost time.

Recall Polis-Griswold update posted to Facebook today.


We’re not sure exactly how long of an extension the “Recall Polis-Griswold” committee requested, but the details aren’t particularly important. Whether they are seeking another 60 or 90 days, they’re never going to come up with enough signatures to get an actual recall election underway before our regularly-scheduled 2022 election takes place.

For now, Cutunilli and friends might just have to hope that Polis and Griswold get re-elected in November, which would give them four more years to keep this nonsense train rolling.

    So then, Cutunilli & Co. think there are more rubes out there to separate from their cash. They're probably right.

      "out there to separate from their cash….." Considering the numbers that are getting fleeced by Ron Hanks and Tina Peters, why shouldn't Cutunilli and company get in on fleecing the marks out of their hard earned cash?

      I'm also reminded that "Cutunilli" rhymes with the Vanilli part of the name of that "great" musical duo, Milli Vanilli.

    I would extend the time to 2025.

    they still won't make it.

    Just curious WHY they think there ought to be an extension.  Are they admitting that there is a pandemic going on?  That people haven't returned to normal life? Surely it isn't that their petition gathering people have been slowed by needing to socially distance.

    I'm now wondering if Sec. Griswold will even bother putting out a press release noting the action to deny the extension.

    While looking for a few more details on that, I also see there is now a recall petition out as of 4/19 on

    Name of officeholder: Alonzo Payne  Office: District Attorney, 12th Judicial District

    Party: Democratic  # of signatures required: 3,996  Petition deadline: 6/17/2022

    That one doesn't seem immediately partisan … the reasons are here.

    It is all about the never ending grift with these a-holes.
