Wiretap is our daily roundup of stuff (about whatever) that we read and that we think you might like to read, too. Today we’re leading off with the Public Policy Poll that predicted Pueblo state Senator Angela Giron would lose in the gun-control recall election by 12 points. It was suppressed because pollsters thought it had to be wrong. It wasn’t.
