Our congressman, Jared Polis, gave up his safe seat in the U.S. House of Representatives to run for governor of lolorado. He recently won the Democratic primary by a wide margin (despite the fact that Mr. Pee and I voted for someone else), and will face Bush family member Walker Stapleton (otherwise known as Rutherford P. Higginbotham III) in the general election.

The fact that Polis was our second choice is, for me, largely offset by the fact that today he selected our former state rep, Dianne Primavera, as his running mate. In this here thread you'll find multiple examples of me fanboying for Dianne, my all-time favorite state legislator.

In all likelihood, our new congressman will be Joe Neguse, who would be the first African-American ever elected to a federal office from lolorado.

I really like how all the news stories are specifying the brand of the tractor.

Oh hey, Colorado.

The other day I had some tea with dinner from this place in Boulder. While I found the flavour a bit acidic, the scent was one of the best I've ever had.

eta: No I was not in Colorado.

Initiative 97 supporters say secret recording shows petition-gatherer was paid to leave Colorado

A couple pieces of my brain fell off from trying to sort that story out.

The GOP is the party of personal responsibility, but only where "personal responsibility" is defined in a way that specifically excludes supporting one's own spawn.

Late last year, the Republican representative for state House District 47 took a jerb with the Trump Administration, and a GOP vacancy committee appointed this racist pig to serve out the remainder of the term. The racist pig decided to run for a full term, but her tenure ended when she got whupped in the Republican HD47 primary.

The winner of the GOP primary, and favorite to win the seat come November, is a lovely fellow by the name of Don Bendell. It recently came to light that ol' Don was a deadbeat dad of epic proportions. Bendell's response to this story is basically, "Fuck you. I paid every penny of that child support. And besides, my ex was a big giant bitch."

Well, it turns out that Don and his family were living in North Carolina when he and his wife got divorced. When a North Carolina court entered a judgment requiring Don to pay support for his three minor children, ol' Don bailed to Ohio and later to Colorado. (The NC courts were biased, ya see.) He never paid any support until 1997, when interstate child support enforcement procedures enacted at the federal level during the Clinton administration enabled the ex-wife to obtain a judgment for unpaid child support here in Colorado. Ol' Don eventually paid the amounts due with interest (the article says he "recently" finished paying) but didn't even start paying until after all his children had reached the age of majority.

And then there's Rep. Tim Leonard, the wingnut Republican incumbent who represents Colorado HD25. Timmy recently dropped his reelection bid after a judge denied his motion to reduce his child support obligations. State reps make $30K a year, which isn't enough to live on, so folks generally continue working a regular job while serving as legislators. Not Timmy, though. His demand for child support payment reduction was based on the fact that his legislator paycheck was his only income, and is substantially less than what he was making as commercial real estate manager before he got elected. The judge basically said, "Fuck you. Voluntary underemployment isn't a basis for a reduction in your child support obligations."
