The Boulder Daily Camera reported Thursday that the county’s District Attorney Stan Garnett (D) had reviewed the 17 names submitted for potential prosecution and found all were easily able to verify their status as eligible voters. Calling Gessler’s actions politically motivated, he noted, “Local governments and county clerks do a really good job regulating the integrity of elections, and I’ll stand by that record any day of the week. We don’t need state officials sending us on wild goose chases for political reasons.” While he was not sure how much the investigation had cost his office, he said it could have utilized the investigator assigned to the matter on other things.

A spokesman for Gessler defended the fruitless referral, arguing that the Secretary of State is, “taking a proactive approach by working with the federal government to verify citizenship status, alerting the voter and notifying law enforcement to try and prevent non-citizens from casting a ballot.”
But Gessler’s snipe hunt is but the latest failure for those attempting to find evidence of widespread voter fraud. In reality, a person is 39 times more likely to be struck by lightning than to committee voter fraud — and 3,500 times more likely to report a UFO encounter.

In June, Colorado’s ethics panel determined Gessler violated state ethics laws and breached public trust for his own personal gain. He received a fine for the violations.
