This week, Colorado voters took to the polls in the first major election since the world got turned upside down on November 3, 2020. While Colorado isn’t necessarily a “swing state”, the 2022 primaries had a statewide race that garnered national attention: the race between the Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters and the Director (on leave) of the Center for Tech and Civic Life, Pam Anderson. Yes, CTCL. The wildly unpopular (in conservative circles) non-profit that injected over $400 million from Mark Zuckerberg’s organization into the 2020 election.
But this story isn’t so much about Pam Anderson, who skipped the typical GOP Convention nomination by instead gathering signatures to appear on the ballot. It’s not even so much about Tina Peters, whom ColoradoPols.com showed as “…sadly, [the] favorite in a Republican Primary in 2022” and also showed Tina Peters chances to win not just the primary, but the overall general election at 40% to Pam Anderson’s 20% and Mike O’Donnell’s 5%. Wait, Mike O’Donnell? Who’s that? If you asked yourself that question, so did many Coloradoans. And his miraculous, unprecedented David vs Goliath showing is the focus of this brief article.
Mike O’Donnell, an Australian native and Colorado business owner living in Yuma Co, was the third person on the ballot in this race. In the GOP Convention in April, he lost to Tina Peters 60.67% to 39.43%, but still garnered enough votes to make the ballot. As mentioned above, Pam Anderson opted to skip the convention and rather made the ballot by gathering 17,904 signatures (only 12,317 were deemed “valid” though) I’m certain those signatures were predominantly from GOP voters though. The GOP in Colorado would love to be represented by a board member from CTCL after the 2020 election. Twenty two other republicans opted to get on the ballot by this method, including Joe O’Dea who upset Ron Hanks in the US Senate primary, compared to only nine democrats.
But the 3,772 Republican delegates at this year’s GOP Convention must have been unprecedentedly out of touch with their constituents that elected them because Mike O’Donnell had quite a turnout in the primary this week. Not only is he in a neck and neck tie with Tina Peters for second place, he was actually able to win outright in 17 counties, most of which went heavily for Donald Trump in 2020.
Mike O’Donnell fundraised a whopping $1,645 from June 9 thru June 22 from a ground breaking 13 donors. Comparatively speaking, Pam Anderson raised $13,016.93 from a total of 43 donors and Tina Peters raised $19,220 from a total of 154 donors, all during the same June 9 - June 22 time period.
In total, O’Donnell raised just over $12,000 in monetary donations for his campaign. Comparatively, the alleged “winner”, Pam Anderson, raised $121,779.15 and Tina Peters, the acknowledged front runner according to ColoradoPols and other news outlets, raised $215,912.96.
So the folks of Colorado are to believe that a relatively unknown candidate who was much closer to not making the ballot at all (9.4%) than he was to winning the convention (21%) and was out fundraised by almost 1,800% somehow beat the frontrunner in the race, Tina Peters, who ended up in 3rd place overall? The candidate who won petitioned her way onto the ballot rather than winning at convention and sits on the board of CTCL, who 70% of voters believed was a “bad thing for American democracy.”
And we must simply believe this without questioning it.
Up is down. Down is up. Much more to come on the Secretary of State election as well as the inversion of GOP candidates from Assembly to Primary…
Following Bush v. Gore many states, including Colorado, rushed to adopt electronic voting machines so the "hanging chads" images broadcast from Florida wouldn't be replicated there. "New technology" would fix that, if only we put our trust in it.
I remember sitting in the public hearings on election reform in the Colorado legislature then. I remember seeing the little old ladies coming in to testify about the need to maintain our paper ballot system, warning that electronic voting machines were prone to tampering with election results, would result in loss of trust in election integrity. They were countered by a large team of highly paid, highly respected lobbyists and special interests, leadership of both state parties defended the switch claiming there was nothing to fear, machines would provide the safest, most secure elections, anti-tampering protocols would be adhered to, we should trust them.
Diebold was the biggest provider of the machines at the time. Diebold had been linked to Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and the stolen elections there that stole democracy from the Venezuelan people. The highly paid, highly respected lobbyists and special interests and leadership of both state parties all said in one voice that the Diebold connection to Chavez was false, that the stories of stolen elections were wild conspiracy theories.
Legislators and most observers in the public hearings were left with the impression that the little old ladies pleading to maintain election integrity by rejecting the machines were relics of another time who technology had passed by. Technology was the way of the future, and the only way to avoid "hanging chads" chaos in future elections. Conventional wisdom became machine skeptics were conspiracy loons.
And the reforms passed, Colorado became a leader and the epicenter of electronic voting systems. Diebold was bought and sold many times since, changed names, Premier Election Systems, Election Systems and Software and eventually, Dominion. Headquartered in Colorado. It's former Vice President, Eric Coomer, at the center of the 2020 electronic voting irregularities, began Dominion's aggressive lawfare attacks on media corporations and public figures who spoke up about election fraud before he was eventually let go. His affiliation with and many public proclamations of support for Antifa and their political violence became too much to defend.
But the template for election fraud through machine manipulation that Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez rode into power on got its start in the United States in Colorado. In those hearings I remember sitting in on. When the warnings of little old ladies were dismissed by younger, arrogant know-it-alls, prodded on by the most powerful special interests that control the leadership of both parties. I saw its genesis, up close and personal. And remember the significance of it to this day.
W.T. Effity Eff!?
