Colorado lawmakers up for recall election: Pueblo officials working on rules

PUEBLO, Colo. - Political party leaders and the Pueblo County clerk and recorder are trying to figure out how to hold one of Colorado's first legislative recalls in state history.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, County Clerk and Recorder Gilbert Ortiz told Republicans and Democrats on Monday he will decide how the recall election will be held and ask for help when he needs it.

Democratic state Sen. Angela Giron faces a recall election on Sept. 10 because of her support of new, stricter gun laws in this year's legislative session.

Democratic Colorado Springs State Sen. John Morse also faces a September recall election after he supported controversial gun control legislation.

Supporters of Morse will file a criminal complaint with the Colorado Springs District Attorney over forged signatures they said they found on recall petitions.
