A Tale of Two Senators in Colorado

These photos speak for themselves, so we’ll just provide a little background information and get out of the way.

The woman in the pictures below is Dawn Russell, an activist with ADAPT who was one of many protestors with disabilities arrested at the Denver office of Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) in late June. Russell and her fellow protestors had been engaged in a sit-in at Gardner’s office in an effort to speak with him about not supporting various Republican healthcare proposals — all of which would have led to devastating cuts to Medicaid and other programs that Russell depends on for her own personal health (Gardner ended up voting “YES” on three different Senate Republican bills last week before Arizona Sen. John McCain upended the process with his infamous “NO” vote).

In the second picture, Russell is speaking with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Denver) at the “Our Lives on the Line” rally in Denver on Saturday.

    What a great photo . Dawn is a true leader – Bennet should bask in her reflected glory.

    Gardner is harder to find in these photos than Waldo.  Even when the article is about him, he is invisible.  Wasn't it Saddam Hussein who was found hiding in a spider hole.  Surely Gardner is in more comfortable digs than that.
