Talking Points Memo reports:
The former chair of the Colorado Republican Party was sentenced to four years of probation and 300 hours of community service on Friday for committing voter fraud and forging his ex-wife’s signature on her 2016 ballot.
Steve Curtis, who chaired the state’s Republican Party from 1997 to 1999, has said in his defense that he filled out the ballot — and certified it with his ex-wife’s forged signature — during a diabetic blackout.
He was first charged in March of last year and was found guilty of both forgery and voter fraud — a felony and misdemeanor, respectively — in December. In 2016, before charges were filed against him, Curtis notably argued on a talk radio show he hosted that “virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats.”
