In Colorado, the Democrats appear to be engaging in some dirty tricks. A somewhat covert attempt to put some dummy political parties on the ballot to siphon off right-wing support from the Republican Party with zombie parties named "Pro-Life Party" and "Gun Owners' Rights Party". From the article:
A representative of the petition company that is gathering the names and a signature gatherer both told a Post reporter Saturday that they were hired by a relative of a former top Democratic official in Colorado. The newspaper is not naming that person because the relative could not be reached for comment.
Rather a pathetic attempt at creating plausible deniability, the clearest sign that these are puppet parties is that the founders are not pushing forward for the publicity you would expect such people to desire. The dishonesty is about average for Colorado Democrats. The clumsy execution about normal too.
