George Brauchler Tweets Himself Into Oblivion

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler is growing increasingly desperate as his campaign for the Republican gubernatorial nomination sputters along.

Brauchler is running a campaign built on half-truths and doublespeak, neither of which appear to be doing much to help his fundraising efforts. Brauchler had an awful first fundraising quarter in Q2, and from what we hear, things aren’t going much better as the Sept. 30 quarterly deadline approaches. Brauchler sent out a fundraising email earlier this week that caught the attention of journalist David Sirota, which led to this exchange on Wednesday evening:

George Brauchler

Universal healthcare must be stopped!

Wait…what?

Brauchler likes to fashion himself as a beacon of conservatism, and that’s fine. But why would you say thisWe’d bet a hefty sum that there are not a lot of Colorado voters who wish that college was more expensive and healthcare less accessible.

Sirota later Tweeted this about Brauchler’s reply — which was subsequently re-tweeted by The Hulk himself (actor Mark Ruffalo, who has 3.5 million followers on Twitter).

This is not the first time that Brauchler has gotten into trouble with Twitter, nor is it the first time that Brauchler had his ass handed to him by a journalist on Twitter. This is the same guy who was admonished by a judge for Tweeting during the trial of James Holmes, the convicted killer from the Aurora Theater Shootings.

Perhaps Brauchler meant to say that he would oppose Obamacare and disagrees with a specific proposal for “free” college. Or, maybe this Tweet is perfectly accurate in describing Brauchler’s viewpoints. Either way, it’s a stupid mistake.

And they’re really starting to pile up for Brauchler.

  1. So Brauchler is tweeting that he's willing to be on the take?  " I'm willing to take more than $10 to block single payer, universal health care and so-called 'free college.' "

    Now, if he could just convince some wealthy, politically-minded donors to think somehow he would be the one (among HOW many Republicans running with these exact same sentiments?) they should pay.
