Tina Peters, the Trump-loving Mesa County, Colorado clerk who has indulged in multiple election fraud conspiracies, has now been barred from participating in this year's November elections.
The Denver Post reports that District Court Judge Valerie J. Robison ruled on Wednesday that a lawsuit filed in August by Democratic Secretary of State Jena Griswold "met the burden of showing that Peters... committed a breach and neglect of duty and other wrongful act."
Peters is under investigation for possibly allowing another person to tamper with voting equipment in her county, and she at one point reportedly went into hiding with the help of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who invited her to speak this past summer at his "Cyber Symposium" that failed to prove the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
Peters blasted the ruling against her and vowed to appeal it.
"This power grab is a stunning abuse of office and overreach by Secretary of State Jena Griswold, which should alarm all Coloradans," she said, according to the Denver Post. "If this decision stands, it will fundamentally shift the power of running local elections from the county clerk to a Secretary of State in Denver, eroding the checks and balances that make our elections fair."
