Colorado Republican Senate candidate Jon Keyser had a triple meltdown yesterday when confronted by allegations that his campaign forged signatures to get him on the ballot.
First, Keyser stumbled — and that’s putting it gently — to answer a question on the fraud allegations at a candidate forum. Things went even more poorly for Keyser after the event, when Denver7 reporter Marshall Zelinger confronted Keyser and took him to task over his refusal to be honest with voters. Scrambling, Keyser told Zelinger plenty about his “great” and “big” Great Dane, but he continued to stonewall questions about the fraud allegations.
But that wasn’t the end of it. At another town hall that evening, Keyser was again confronted by reporters — and yet again, he stumbled, refusing to address any questions on the fraudulent signatures.
As Denver’s 9News put it:
Bad turned to worse, as [Keyser] refused to discuss the claims of forged signatures, repeatedly insisting he’s “on the ballot and that’s all that matters.”
Not for long, perhaps, if things are as bad as they seem.
