The Colorado Recall

I do love this story and how it was just a citizen who had had enough who started the recall rolling. Why? Because his elected representative decided he wasn’t worth listening to.

What so got under Head’s skin, the sense that his representative wasn’t listening to him, added fuel to the recalls more broadly. Morse turned away people who wanted to testify on the measures in the Senate. It was a notable act of high-handedness in a body that, as Dave Kopel of the Colorado-based Independence Institute points out, usually has limitless patience for citizen input.
