    Call me crazy but when candidates lies and steal I don't think they should be allowed to run for governor.

    It's a disgusting display of their absolute arrogance that they REFUSE to be ashamed enough of their past wrong-doings to just high tail it on out of the scene, imho.

    Guess he figures that by Nov, this will have all blown over, and if asked about it, he'll just lie some more.

    Cripes!

    OH! I didn't catch that he was a Repug ~ guess his strategy is to hop on the Defeat the Dems At ANY Cost bandwagon.

    Pols who are proven cheaters, liars and thieves should not be allowed to run for office and if already in office, should be booted immediately. Cripes, that sure wouldn't leave many in D.C., would it?

    Even though this is not to give him a pass, I heard that he had obtained permission to use the writing that he put his name to...Kinda like the Books that AL Frankenstein "wrote".

    Just for the record, his reneging on his pledge to term limit himself and playing the "I'm too important to quit" card, when he was a congressweasel, is enough for me to not vote for the double-dealer, if I still voted in CO.

    sheeesh, more proof we need election reforms to make it easier for people to vote other than dem/repub
    requiring 50%+1 to win any election and run-off elections would solve a lot of these issues

    Yeah, but that's something that every state has to choose for themselves. And if they don't have the ballot initiative process, it'd be nearly impossiblle, as neither the remocrats nor depublicans want to give up their political duopoly stranglehold on the political process.
