Peters is asking court to attend election denier event

Indicted Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters wants to leave the state to attend an event in Missouri, but District Attorney Dan Rubinstein is asking the court to deny it.

Peters, who faces multiple criminal counts of tampering with election equipment and misconduct in office, is asking District Judge Matthew Barrett for permission to attend an election denier event in Springfield, Missouri, hosted by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell next week.
