The Washington Post reports:
A Colorado judge on Wednesday prohibited a local official who has embraced conspiracy theories from overseeing November’s election, finding she breached and neglected her duties and was “untruthful” when she brought in someone who was not a county employee to copy the hard drives of Dominion Voting Systems machines.
The effort by Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters (R) to ferret out supposedly hidden evidence of fraud amounted to an escalation in the attacks on the nation’s voting systems, according to experts, one in which officials who were responsible for election security allegedly took actions that undermined that security in the name of protecting it.
Read the full article. Peters, you may recall, is an acolyte of Mike Lindell, who has said that he’s ferreted her away into a “safe house” for unknown reasons.

Today, we won our case to legally remove Clerk Tina Peters from working on the upcoming election. I will always stand with the people of Colorado against those working to harm democracy and the right to vote.
