Recalled Colorado senator has on-air meltdown

Two days following Colorado’s recall election weren’t enough to cool the emotions of one of the two Democratic state senators voters rejected because of their anti-Second Amendment position. She had an emotional meltdown on national TV.

CNN’s “Newsroom” anchor Brooke Baldwin asked Colorado state Sen. Angela Giron about her defeat Thursday, and taking a playbook page from the Democratic National Committee and Attorney General Eric Holder, she blamed the whole fiasco on voter suppression.

“We know what really happened here. What this story really is about, it’s about voter suppression,” she began.

“When Colorado has voted by mail — 70 percent of Coloradans vote by mail — and we didn’t have access to that mail ballot –”

Seeing where this was heading, Baldwin interrupted the soon-to-be-former senator.

“I’m going to cut you off there,” Baldwin cut in. “Let’s just not go there. Let’s get to the meat of the story.”

“That is the meat of the story,” Giron insisted.

Baldwin noted that she had enormous financial support from the gun control crowd. Reuters reposted Wednesday that $3 million was raised to defeat the recalls, with New York City Mayor Michael having put up $350,000 of it.

But Giron would have none of it.

“The people that are in support of very common sense gun legislation weren’t able to get to the polls,” Giron asserted. “We didn’t even know what the rules of the game were. This is the United States of America. We didn’t know what the rules of the game were a week out from the election; where to vote, how to vote, how to get a ballot in the mail.”

Voter suppression? Really, Baldwin wondered on Twitter? She soon got her answer from CO Peak Politics.

 

Ronert Galena agreed, and tweeted:

 

U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman came up with the real zinger, though, in the following tweet:
