Danny Moore to Campaign With Election Denier Joe Oltmann

(Guess they’re done pretending — Promoted by Colorado Pols)

POLS UPDATE: Here comes the backpedal!

But remember, election truthers, “I care about everything that you care about.”

by Sean Price, Colorado Times Recorder

Danny Moore, a Republican running to be Colorado’s next Lieutenant Governor, is appearing at an event next week with Colorado’s most extreme election conspiracist: QAnon-promoting militia leader Joe Oltmann.

The event is being held in Evergreen by two conservative groups, the Mountain Republican Club and the 285 Tea Party, on Tuesday, October 18.

The flyer for next week’s event.

Oltmann is the founder of FEC United, a controversial extremist militia that has pushed election fraud conspiracy theories that have been widely debunked by courts, election officials, and independent fact-checkers. Last year, Oltmann said that he wanted to see Gov. Jared Polis (D-CO) — and other politicians who Oltmann disagreed with — killed.

In April the Colorado Times Recorder published a comprehensive timeline outlining Oltmann’s rise to power and the close ties between him, FEC United, and the Colorado Republican Party.

Moore has also pushed election fraud conspiracy theories, saying last year that the 2020 presidential election was a “Democrat steal.”

In July, after being chosen by Republican candidate for Governor Heidi Ganahl to be her running mate, Moore falsely claimed in a column for the Denver Gazette that he “always believed that Joe Biden was legitimately elected president.”

Throughout her campaign, Ganahl has tried to avoid discussing her stance on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election. However, Ganahl refuses to explicitly denounce claims of fraud, continues to campaign with election deniers, and praises election fraud conspiracy groups.

  1. Closing weeks of an election, when candidate time OUGHT to be at a premium, and the Ganahl campaign apparently accepted an invitation without knowing who else would be involved? 

    Assume the "reason" provided for pulling out is sincere and accurate.  Then, I'm not certain which option would be more damning:  they agreed WITHOUT knowing details or setting clear conditions on the event OR they agreed because they had nothing better to do. 

  2. Joe Oltmann would be wise to keep his mouth shut until Dominion's defamation case against him is done.  But then again, there's nothing wise about this POS
