Jeffco's Lamest Whacktivist "Nancy Pallozzi" Strikes Again

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
“Nancy Pallozzi,” no not the one you’ve heard of.

If you spend enough time following Jefferson County politics you’ll sooner or later run across Jeffco Republican Party chair Nancy Pallozzi,” whose entire claim to fame appears to rest upon her phonetically similar name to the former Democratic Speaker of the House, and has been involved in a variety of low-level and generally unsuccessful political stunts including at least one of the many attempts to grift off the fantasy of recalling Gov. Jared Polis.

Well, as 9NEWS’ Kyle Clark reported yesterday, “Nancy Pallozzi” is at it again, this time spreading completely unfounded rumors that migrants are about to arrive en masse across Sheridan Boulevard from Denver into neighboring Lakewood where untold hell would surely then break loose:

Migrants from Denver will not be housed in Lakewood, leaders from both cities say, but that isn’t dissuading a group opposed to the idea from claiming otherwise and rallying residents to an “emergency citizens’ town hall.”

Organizers of the anonymous group “Concerned Citizens In Lakewood” have taken steps to conceal their identities.

A Jefferson County Public Schools facility use request form, obtained by 9NEWS through the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA), showed that a failed attempt to reserve a school cafeteria for the town hall was made by the county’s Republican Party Chairwoman Nancy Pallozzi.

Since anybody can start a Facebook group and call it anything they want, we’d say identifying the chair of the Jefferson County GOP as the organizer of a meeting to push these bogus claims of an impending “invasion of Lakewood” counts for identifying the origin of the so-called “Concerned Citizens In Lakewood.” In a “statement addressing misinformation” from Lakewood’s city manager,  people who know what they’re talking about comprehensively debunk “Nancy Pallozzi’s” unfounded BS:

Lakewood City Council is not considering designating Lakewood as a “sanctuary city.”

No council member has made this proposal, and it is not something the City Council is considering or planning to consider in the near future.

No council member proposed housing migrants arriving in Denver in vacant Jeffco public schools, which the City of Lakewood does not own, manage, operate or control.

The only action City Council has taken during its January meetings has been to direct the city manager to meet with the City of Denver’s staff as quickly as possible to better understand the migrant crisis, its impacts and the needs as well as possible options for Lakewood to work with Denver on this crisis in the spirit of “being a good neighbor.”

So where did this idea that thousands of migrants would soon be housed in vacant Jeffco schools come from? Much like the baseless allegations against Dominion Voting Systems from conspiracy theorist Joe Oltmann, the single source of this charge is missing that crucial ingredient we in the fact-based world call evidence:

When reached by 9NEWS, Pallozzi declined to provide evidence to support any of the group’s claims. [Pols emphasis]

On the one hand, playing in politics is a lot easier when all you have to do is make stuff up. It also helps to have a name that sounds like a big name in politics.

The final analysis in both cases, sadly, is that everyone’s time is being wasted.

And we’ll say it again: as long as it’s Donald Trump’s Republican Party blocking immigration reform, the only meetings a county party chair should be scheduling on the subject should be internal.
