Now that one State Representative, Justin Everett, is arguing that Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt should not lose legislative clout for comments he’s made outside of the legislature, reporters should track down Klingenschmitt’s endorsers from his campaign last year and find out what they think of their embattled friend.
Their words of praise for Dr. Chaps, as Klingenschmitt calls himself, can be found on his campaign website:
“Gordon Klingenschmitt has demonstrated to me strength of character and resolve to maximize our individual liberties. He is definitely a warrior who will fight the constant intrusion of government which constantly erodes our freedoms. “Thank You,” Gordon for your willingness to represent us.” — Fmr. Colorado Senator Dave Schultheis
“I like Gordon Klingenschmitt! His Academy and military experiences have nurtured a mental toughness to stand and fight for conservative principles when others don’t. We need that in the Colorado General Assembly.” — Colorado Senator Kent Lambert
“Gordon Klingenschmitt is a proven leader who has the principles and values we need in the Colorado legislature.” — Colorado Senator Kevin Lundberg
“Today, we are living in a climate of moral and financial confusion. Gordon Klingenschmitt will help direct the State back to principled conscience and economic prosperity.” — Colorado Senator Vicki Marble
