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.

Why Dems Accused Sheriffs of Standing with Criminals

Jason Salzman | Posted 08.13.2013 | Denver

This is a serious error, because without the reference to Webster, you'd think Democrats were accusing sheriffs of standing with criminals just because the sheriffs oppose gun-safety laws. This was clearly not the intent of Democrats.
