Obama's OFA Operatives Allegedly in Colorado Prior to Gun Control Recall Vote
As Coloradans prepare for recall elections for State Senators John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) and Angela Giron (D-Pueblo), operatives from Obama's Organizing For Action (OFA) have allegedly been sighted in and around several Colorado towns.
In fact, Jennifer Kerns, spokeswoman for Colorado Recalls Basic Freedom Defense Fund, alleges OFA operatives are actually "running the headquarters of one of the senators [being recalled]," Senator Giron.
People in Colorado are attempting to recall Morse and Giron over their support of a slew of new gun control laws that were heaped upon Coloradans in March. These new laws include bans on rifle magazines with larger than 15-round capacity, and on shotgun magazines with larger than 8-round capacity.
The laws also ended private gun sales in the state by requiring that all sales go through a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder and a background check, and they added a new tax on every gun purchase under the guise of a service fee for background checks.
While Democrat Party leaders in Colorado are complaining that outside interests are driving the effort to oust Morse and Giron for supporting these measures, Basic Freedom Defense Fund spokeswoman Kerns alleges she saw "three OFA operatives on a sidewalk in Pueblo on August 13." She also claims vehicles with license plates from Chicago have been sighted in and around Pueblo.
