As part of their ongoing series about changes in rural Colorado, the Denver Post recently ran an article discussing the declining (at least as a %) white population in certain counties.
Former State Senator Greg Brophy, from rural northeastern Colorado, has lived through these changes and has some interesting insights. I'll also ask him about the Steve Lebsock situation, mentioned below...
A woman named Beverly Young Nelson became the fifth woman to accuse Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault or harassment nearly 40 years ago when he was in his early 30s and they were teenagers. I really wish she hadn't shown up with publicity hog Gloria Allred but that doesn't mean I don't believe Nelson's recount.
Part of Nelson's story is an unusual piece of evidence: She claims that Moore signed her high school yearbook. As you can see in the tweet below, a comparison of the yearbook signature and a recent signature of Moore's shows the two look very similar. I would feel more certain if someone tested the age of the ink in the yearbook -- although I am inclined to believe Moore in any case.
Cory Gardner says that Moore should be expelled from the Senate if elected. Mitch McConnell is on a similar page. Former Rep Mo Brooks says he'll still support Moore because Moore will vote the right way. What do you think should happen? What do you think will happen?
Meanwhile, here in Colorado, it's not getting any better for Rep. Steve Lebsock...who I really thought might resign Monday and still think will resign this week:
And how about the left-leaning Aurora Sentinel calling out House Speaker Crisanta Duran?!?
