Where Were Colorado’s Democrat Legislators in Calling for His Resignation?
While several of Colorado’s legislators had called for his resignation, starting with U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman on May 5, the following Democratic legislators did not call for the embattled Secretary to step down:
• U.S. Rep. Diana Degette
• U.S. Rep. Jared Polis
• U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter
• U.S. Senator Michael Bennet
“Colorado is home to many veterans, who deserved far better than the care they received (or didn’t receive) under the Obama administration’s watch,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “Where were these four legislators when veterans needed them? Why wouldn’t they demand accountability for those who put their lives on the line so that we didn’t have to?”
