Accusation of forged signatures in recall election
COLORADO SPRINGS — A man is facing charges of forging signatures on petitions asking for the recall of Colorado Sen. John Morse.
The District Attorney’s Office said Thursday an arrest warrant has been issued for Nickolas Robinson. He’s accused of forging at least 13 signatures on recall petitions. Robinson could not be located for comment on Friday.
According to KKTV-TV, the warrant alleges that Robinson committed 13 counts of forgery, seven counts of perjury and 13 counts of attempt to influence a public servant last May.
Morse and Colorado Sen. Angela Giron were recalled in September for their support of gun control measures in Colorado.
Any votes cast by those people would not have affected the outcome of the election. Morse lost the recall by 2 percent of the vote.
