..."The recounts are complete and confirm once again that Colorado elections are safe and secure," Griswold said. "Accepting the outcome of free and fair elections is a cornerstone of American democracy. Disinformation and frivolous lawsuits do not change the fact that there are winners and losers in an election."

The secretary of state also applauded the election workers who administered the recount.

"In the face of unparalleled pressure and scrutiny, they have stayed focused on our ultimate goal: ensuring that every eligible Republican, Democrat, and Unaffiliated voter has their voice heard," she said. "Repeating a lie over and over does not make it true. Colorado's elections are secure, and voters' [sic] can be confident in them."

Peters' campaign did not respond to TPM's request for comment....

I am 100% sure she will continue to whine the election was stolen just like the melted circus peanut she worships.

So long as these dolts and grifters don't have to pay for their recounts they will continue to scream for them, no matter how punishing their defeats at the polls. Money both talks and swears, and put up or shut up' should be more of the political conversation in this country ...

You mean the recount that didn't finish because the Supreme Court decided to election George Bush?

Always a great sign when the Supreme Court says "This is our ruling but it doesn't count and shouldn't be used ever again."

MSGT lived his adult life on the government dime... and continues to do so.

He was paid to win wars.

We haven't won a war in over 8 decades and he still gets paid.

There is something seriously wrong with this picture.
