Beauprez has shown a "tendency in recent years to voice support for the fringe issue du jour on the right, whether it's northern Colorado secession or repeal of the 17th Amendment permitting the direct election of senators." I just found yet another instance of Beauprez voicing "support for the fringe issue du jour on the right."

Don't Let Gardner Mislead Us About His Personhood Bill

Jason Salzman | Posted 09.15.2014 | Denver
Jason Salzman

The Life at Conception Act aims to redefine the definition of a person in the 14th Amendment, and apply the 14th Amendment's protections to zygotes, hence banning all abortion, even for rape, as well as common forms of birth control that endanger, or even potentially endanger, fertilized eggs.

Obviously, Plunkett didn't rob Kurtis Lee of a Pulitzer by deleting his blog post from The Post's website. It wasn't an earth-shattering piece, but it advanced, in its small way, an issue that's important to a lot of real people as well as political elites.

Golay told me he's not sure his business will survive, and he may be forced to go back to bartending and waiting tables. He's not blaming the recall organizers or The Denver Post, but he says having them next door and being quoted in newspaper didn't make running his business any easier.
