Arapahoe County Clerk Tracy Baker, infamous for giving his girlfriend a huge raise, exchanging sexually-explicit email at work, and apparently having sex with her at work – was recalled from office on February 24th. This wasn’t a big surprise – Baker fought hard against allowing the recall election because he knew that he would get ousted in an election. And he was correct: the final tally had 87% of people voting for his recall.
The sad part of this story is that the Green party did not run a candidate in the recall election. This would’ve been a winnable election – Libertarian candidate Travis Nicks pulled in 14.2% of the votes, and a write-in Democrat pulled in 13.7%.
