Dems allege forgery in senator's recall effort

Sen. John Morse


Democrats trying to block a recall election of state Senate President John Morse have brought another allegation that the petition is invalid.

El Paso County Democrats on Friday accused the opponents of Morse of committing fraud by forging at least 50 names on recall petitions.
Morse and another Democratic senator are being targeted for recalls because they voted for gun control laws. Morse is awaiting a state decision on his first challenge, that the recall effort against him is invalid because the petitions weren't properly worded. That challenge is pending in the secretary of state's office.
Democratic Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo is expected to make a similar petition language challenge next week.
The secretary of state's office has said both recall petitions have enough signatures to force recall elections.
