Colorado Springs, CO – Colorado grassroots group files for recall of Senate President.
The Basic Freedom Defense Fund (BFDF) was recently formed to hold state politicians accountable for voting against the express wishes and Constitutional rights of their constituency.
The group announced today that they have filed a petition with the Colorado Secretary of State's Office to recall State Senate President John Morse (D. District 11) for his stand on the U.S. 2nd Amendment and his direct harm to the rights of Colorado citizens.
Per BFDF's spokesperson, Nick Andrasik –“Senator Morse has made it very clear – through both his words and his actions – that he put greater value on the thoughts of interest groups and politicians outside the state of Colorado than the wishes of his constituency. In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, he stated that he advised fellow Senators to ignore the thousands of emails sent in opposition and that he (Morse) was ‘proud of my caucus… and the way they’ve gotten this done.’ This behavior is that of a tyrant, not an elected official. The contempt and arrogance displayed in the face of an enormous outcry of objection from everyday Colorado citizens shows how little he cares for the will of the people of Colorado and solidifies our position that he should no longer have the privilege to serve us.”
Several public meetings have been held in Colorado Springs, with hundreds of concerned and outraged Coloradans turning out to protest what they feel are extremely dangerous attacks on the Constitution and innocent citizens' rights by politicians. BFDF intends to educate and support disenfranchised Coloradans in an organized effort to remove elitist legislators from public office through the recall process initially and through a more informed constituency in future elections.
