U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, who is also the chairman of the Colorado Republican Party, was captured ordering a local party official to report false election results in a primary race for a state Senate seat in a leaked audio recording released earlier this week.

"How in the heck is the Republican Party going to go out and say, 'We're for the rule of law except when it applies to us?"

Without a glimmer of shame, that's how.

"And you understand that it is the order of the central committee that you do so?" Buck pressed.

That sentence says it all. Fealty to Dear Leader is all that matters. These folks are so unAmerican it makes me sick.

Plus, you have to wonder how many false reports were filed under order of the "Central Committee".

Doubtful this is an isolated incident.

Yep, Trump was right, there is wide-spread election fraud going on in this country. The problem is that whenever it shows up, it's always Republicans who are involved.

We need to fix oour country. We need to elect democrats to the Presidency, the Senate and the House and then begin a huge investigation of the actions of the Republican Party over the last 40 years. And then we need to file charges against all of them, incarcerate them and change the laws they enacted that make it possible for them to steal democracy. We also need to impeach members of the Supreme Court starting with Clarency Thomas. This nation needs a house cleaning. We need to expel every member of the government who is actually a Fascist and the Republican Party has so many of them that it might be time to define the Republican Party as a Fascist Party.

Extreme thought? Last time I checked the neews we had 78,000 unnecessary deaths due to COVID19, it is time to hold the President and the party that enables him to account. Their actions (or inactions) caused this. That's just the truth. The Republican Party has contrived to suppress hundreds of thousands of legally registered voters, they have closed voting locations, they have altered votes through computer hacking. It is time they were held accountable.

Literally, thousands of people who have died in unnecessary wars and in this Pandemic would be alive today had we held them accountable earlier.

George W. Bush is a murderer. Donald Trump is a murderer. Ronald Reagon committed treason as did George H.W. Bush.

It's time for them to be held accountable.

The republicl0wns don't deserve another pardon... they are like this because they get a pass all the time.

I think its a shame we can't penalized everyone that voted for him to cut them out of any stimulus packages.

As I commented yesterday, "nearly every ill that Republicans see in the world is really just their reflection."

"The republicl0wns don't deserve another pardon."

Gerald Ford caused this. He was a member of the lying Warren Commission.He pardoned Nixon. He started the ball rolling to destroy democracy in the United States. Everything that has happened subsequently has its roots in that decision.

I'm old enough to remember when the BG would have resigned in disgrace after such a story came out.

I wonder why everyone is so cynical...

Sounds like Ken Buck needs to be indicted. This all the GOP has left, cheating and voter suppression to win elections in order to continue the transfer of wealth upward.

Got win man. Winning is everything. Rule of law only counts when it's the other guy. We are above that nonsense. The winners write History. The losers are forgotten.

The Dems are too fair minded and honest to prevail against these miscreants. It's sad because the only real value in life is with the honest and fair.

To beat these bastards we're going to have to become them. That is the greatest tragedy of all.

I've said this at least a dozen times
since Bush v. Gore 2000, and it still
rings true. The GOP cannot win without
Cheating. Period...

It's amazing what some people will say when they don't know they're being recorded.

I've always found it useful to carry one of those little super sensitive pocket size recorders when the enemy comes mealy-mouthing in my territory.

"This country was bought and paid for a long time ago"

-George Carlin

The electoral college has overruled popular vote tallies twice in the past 20 years.

It only happened twice in the entire history of this country before that.

This cheating is so pervasive that we have folks on here not even getting paid to spew propaganda in feeble attempts to control the narrative.

"Garbage In, Garbage Out"

"Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody: "The Public Sucks. ---- Hope." "
