Gessler says ballot scandal not yet over

In the wake of the motion issued by Judge Brian Whitney in Gessler v. Johnson, Scott Gessler, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and State Rep. Crisanta Duran, D-Denver all issued statements. Gessler said Friday’s decision was merely “the first salvo”.

He also said his intention in filing the suit was to ensure that all counties are consistent in who they send ballots to.

His statement:

“The judge today did not decide on the merits of the case as this was a preliminary decision. The judge said we have a reasonable probability of success on the merits but also admitted his decision could throw the outcome of the election in doubt.

“Coloradans can continue to expect my office to enforce the laws on the books, preserve statewide uniformity, and ensure election integrity,” Gessler said. “Unfortunately, the judge’s decision today allows counties to operate this election differently based on how much money they have. We’ve seen constant erosion of personal responsibility and this decision continues that erosion.

“There can be respectful disagreement over whether Colorado has a good law. But the issues argued in court were largely muddled by overblown political rhetoric and grandstanding by those seeking partisan gain. As we move into the presidential election, I would challenge Coloradans to look beyond the rhetoric, beyond the embellishments and beyond the overblown statements to arrive at your own conclusions. This is merely the first salvo in a long election year to come.

“As I’ve said, inactive voters can still participate in this election by updating their status at GoVoteColorado.com, by contacting their county clerk or by showing up to any service center or polling place before the election.”

Mayor Hancock’s statement:

“I am pleased with the court’s ruling and believe this is a great victory for Denver voters. I applaud the work of our Clerk and Recorder Debra Johnson and our City Attorneys for their diligent representation of the rights of our registered voters. As stewards of good government, our efforts should and will always be focused on encouraging all of our residents to vote, eliminating unnecessary obstacles to participation and working to increase civic engagement through the voting process.”

Rep. Crisanta Duran:

“This is a win for the 54,000-plus legally registered voters of Denver who would have been discouraged from voting by Secretary Gessler’s demand. I’m thrilled that all those folks will have the opportunity to participate in Colorado’s upcoming election, and that people won out over political maneuvering.”
