Jane Norton is the
true conservative

I have a unique resume of being heavily involved in both the Republican Senate campaigns.

I was Ken Buck’s chair for El Paso County from April 2009 through October 2009. Several times I attempted to get a straight answer out of Buck on life and marriage. He never once gave me a clear answer at all, but a nuanced one.

By October, I learned about the 5,000 Hispanic tax returns Buck illegally grabbed from a Hispanic tax preparer. Attorney General John Suthers told Buck to just take the few where he could show probable cause of identity theft. The state Supreme Court ruled the grab was an illegal search and seizure, violating Fourth Amendment rights. The last time I talked to Buck I was still questioning him about the illegal grab. Buck told me he was the law in Weld County and he could do what he wanted.

I went over to the Norton campaign the end of October. Jane has a proven, consistent, conservative record. Jane has a strong pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-2nd and 10th
Amendment record. She defunded Planned Parenthood when she was lieutenant governor.

Norton cut her budgets by 28 percent and 10 percent. Norton was the first to call for a balanced budget amendment, abolishing the Department of Education, and to sign a no-earmarks pledge. Jane was first to call for ripping Obamacare out by its roots, and replacing it with a free-market approach with tort reform. She supports drilling in ANWAR, the Roan Plateau, and an all types of energy approach. Norton has been endorsed by the Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition,
Family Research Council, American Conservative Union, and Susan B. Anthony fund.

Norton has been attacked with $1.6 million in ads from three 527’s, funded by Morgensen. Recently, the media published the story about how Buck was fired from the U.S. Attorney’s office, reprimanded by then U.S. Attorney John Suthers, and sent to ethics classes. Last weekend Buck said he does not wear high heels and people should vote for him because he has bull——on his boots. I don’t think so!

Jane Norton is the true, experienced conservative who is ready to lead. Jane has integrity, and does not need ethics classes.

Don’t send another
lawyer to Washington

So Ken Buck doesn’t wear high heels; he wears cowboy boots with bull——on them.

The United States has enough lawyers in Congress who either have bull——in their brains or coming out of their mouths. Let’s not make
the situation worse by sending another one to Washington, D.C.

McInnis won’t treat taxpayers
better than he does his friends

Watch how people who are courting you treat other people. Are they nice to their parents and sisters and brothers? How about ex-spouses and boyfriends and girlfriends? Co-workers, customers and clients? Cab drivers, waiters and waitresses? Because nobody’s special. How they treat those people is ultimately how they’re going to treat you.
If Scott McInnis will rip-off and lie to “long-time” family friend Rolly Fischer and then blame Fischer for his (McInnis’) behavior, he will lie and rip-off you, who he’s probably never met, or only met superficially at a political function.
Dr. Malik Hasan said in several media interviews, “I was disappointed both with the quantity and the quality of work he put into it. Now that I’m hearing even the small amount of work he put in — the news seems he may have plagiarized it — that’s a double disappointment.” 
If Scott McInnis performed disappointing…” quantity and the quality” of work for which he was paid $300,000” the taxpayers and voters of Colorado can expect even less if he’s elected governor which pays less, is much harder and he can’t fool Rolly Fischer into doing for him.
Nobody’s special. If Scott McInnis lied and ripped-off Rolly Fischer and Dr. Malik Hasan, he’ll lie and rip-off you.
