Recalled Colorado State Senator Angela Giron Refuses to Go Down Gracefully

Former State Senator Angela Giron blamed everything but her gun-grabbing policies when interviewed by CNN two days after she lost a close recall election. CNN's Brook Baldwin brought up an earlier interview in which Giron stated she wasn't quite sure what happened and asked, "Have you figured that out yet?"

Giron stumbled over her words, stating she thinks that was a misquote and "we know what really happened here." She then went on to blame voter suppression, which is defined by Wikipedia as "a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing people from exercising their right to vote." While campaigning attempts to influence voters to vote in a certain manner, voter suppression tries to reduce the number of voters from the opposing side that will come to the polls.

She went on to state 70% of Coloradans vote by mail and mail voting wasn't allowed in the special election. Baldwin abruptly cut her off and told her not to go there and went on to mention she'd read reports on how unpopular the Senator was. She again tried to claim "people that are in support of very common sense gun legislation weren't able to get to the polls." Maybe it was that, or maybe the people aren't believing the gun legislation she tried to push through was common sense legislation.

Giron looked shocked and confused the entire interview. Maybe she expected more support from the CNN anchor, or maybe she's still in disbelief that gun owners in her largely Democratic district were able to pull the recall election off. Regardless, Senators across the United States have been put on notice. Americans are fed up and they have the power to take action.
