    Someone just offered to pay double my asking price so that I could contribute that much more to the recall effort.

    That's a patriot!

    Could one of you gents who are involved with the CO recall effort direct me as to what rules I need to follow to get this money donated and who I need to send the donation to?

    I gave more +$10 just now and I notice it's a different donation website.

    Why the change?

    If you're local don't overlook the volunteer opportunity on the page.

    What if you donate it through a corporation? Arent they allowed to donate just like a person? If corporation can be set up to give unlimited amounts of money to presidential elections, why cant a corporation be set up to gain 2nd amendment support by financing recalls? They give to the corp., who then finances their agenda. If possible, it may shield individuals who are nervous about their identities being given out? Can corporations like say the NRA (if they are indeed corporate) or similar outfit earmark contributions to finance recall elections? Just thinking out loud...

    I am not directly involved in the financial end. I am directly involved in the signature gathering.
    I was not aware of a change on the website. For questions or concerns on this, or the corperate question, use the contact info on the website. We have an IT person running it that will know the right person (he may be the right person) to address the issue.

    The P-226 magazine is sold and shipped so I put my donation in today. It really wasn't that hard to pull a little together to donate.

    I wonder if we could get a THR donation fund rolling where we all sell something - anything you have in the parts box - and donate the funds to 2nd Amendment activism. Seems that there may be some other states where the recall thing could come in handy. I could probably scrape up a 10/22 stock or a used scope to sell, then use the funds to help remind a bad politician who he or she works for.

    Lucky derby,

    Are you finding that people want to sign or do not want to sign most? Do you think you guys will be able to get all the signatures needed?

    There are numerous opportunities to sign the recall petition in my neck of the woods. Recall signature solicitors, wearing bright fluorescent "Recall Hudak" tee shirts, have appeared at my door on two separate occasions and I've seen efforts to collect signatures alongside north Wadsworth Blvd. A couple of weeks ago, I signed the petition at 88th Ave. and Wads between the Wendy's and Taco Bell.

    If a person in this district wishes to sign, to my perception, it is quite easy thanks to the efforts of decent people.

    As someone contemplating a move to CO in mid-2014, this warms my heart. Making a donation today!

    rem44m: People seem very excited to sign. Have had very little negative feedback, when you discount the organized protesters. The funny thing is, those protests seem to be backfiring. They are drawing attention to us, and peope seem to be upset more at the protesters, making them more determined to sign.
    As far as the numbers, we are on track, but every signature still counts. We need just under 19.000 VALID signatures. We are trying to get 25,000 to turn in. We are checking voter registration on the Secretary of State's website at the time of signing so that we know 1. whether the person is registared to vote in SD19 & 2. How they are registared. We don't want to lose signatures over a middle intial vs full middle name issue or something similar. We have had a number of people think they are in the district who are not, due to the little jogs that the lines take. Also she is listed as the Arvada/Westminster when in fact only about half of Westminster is her district.
    We are roughly halfway through the alotted time. The signatures must be turned in no later than Dec 3rd. We are aiming to have them turned in before Thanksgiving.
    Aslo, if anyone who lives in the district and wants to sign, but cant get to a location for any reason call the office and someone will come to you. Or even message me here, although be aware that I don't often check this site Fri-Mon.

    Resist Evil, if you signed at that location, there is a good chance you either signed mine, or my wife's petition. Thank you.

    That issue is my number one concern about the possible failure of this recall effort... I worked on the first recall campaign, and don't have time to work on this second one at the moment. However, in talking to many people I know (who also live in this district, as I do), most people don't realize that there is a second recall campaign going on. Many of my friends and neighbors are against Evie, and signed the first petition. But, many of them don't/didn't realize that they MUST sign again (thanks to the effort being tabled for a while).

    Hopefully we can overcome that hurdle. If it makes it to a vote, I'm 98% confident that she'll be recalled. Problem is, I'm only 50-50 on whether or not this recall effort is going to get out there enough to pick up the required number of signatures.

    goon,

    Your idea is so good we're going to open a special forum just so members like you that want to sell off 2A related items to raise money to donate to 2A causes like the CO recalls.

    We're deciding now whether it should be a subforum in Activism or in Buy/Sell/Trade, but it will be up soon. The rules will be the same as for BST threads with the additional requirement that the cause the money raised will be donated to is noted so that people know where the money will end up.

    It's about time I had a good idea for a change.
