DNC Head Blames CO Loss On ‘Voter Suppression’

From Fox News:

DNC head Wasserman Schultz blames Colorado loss on ‘voter suppression’

September 12, 2013

WASHINGTON –  The historic Colorado recall election that resulted this week in two Democratic lawmakers being ousted from office was seen by many as a rebuke to their support of gun control legislation. The head of the Democratic Party had a different take.

"This was voter suppression, pure and simple," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said in a statement.

Schultz claimed the elections in Colorado on Tuesday "were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature and the people." …

Boy, those special interests are powerful.

But Republicans says that’s nonsense. And they sharply dispute the claim that if more people were able to vote, the Democrats would have survived the recall.

Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler’s office also questioned Schultz’ argument.

"When you look at the results of this recall election, when more people showed up, Democrats got crushed," he told Politico. "So why she has any credibility whatsoever just blows me away when she says stuff that’s just completely contradicted by facts on the ground."

Ms. Wasserman Schultz has made a career out of saying "stuff that’s just completely contradicted by facts on the ground."

Schultz says numerous procedural changes to the state’s election laws confused voters… A new state law had initially meant that the recall would be decided entirely by mail.

Which, of course, was intended to help the Democrats cheat.

However, multiple county clerks told election officials they didn’t have enough time to send out the mail-in ballots because of an Aug. 12 ruling that gave other candidates until Aug. 26 to submit enough signatures to get themselves on the ballot.

Because of that ruling, it meant that voters in Morse and Giron’s districts would have to go to polling locations in their county to cast ballots.

How horrible. Imagine requiring that people actually go to a polling place to vote. That really is unheard of, and terribly unfair.

Still, these changes only seem to confuse those who want more gun control laws. Why is that?

The recall captured national attention and was largely seen as a test of how voters responded to gun control measures…

Or rather it was seen that way until the ‘gun grabbers’ lost.

    I’ll never understand how Debbie got where she is. Why anyone would trust a woman who relies entirely on Helman’s for her hair care needs is simply beyond me. I’ve seen this woman for years as a talking head and I have yet to hear her utter even one sentence that made sense.

    What nonsense! The recall resulted from gradual awakening of sheeple and citizens who have finally seen that just because they don’t pay attention, their lives can be affected. Now, it’s on to John Hickenlooper.
