Poundstone says Maes has yet to repay loan; his financial reports...

Republican Dan Maes, in a recent campaign disclosure, says he refunded a $300 campaign contribution to longtime Republican activist Freda Poundstone. Never mind that nowhere in his disclosures does he claim to have received a campaign contribution from Poundstone.

In guv debate, Tancredo reverses support for anti-tax initiatives

LOVELAND-- In a gubernatorial debate held here Friday by the Northeastern Colorado group Progressive 15, American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo backed away from his earlier support of the "Bad Three" anti-tax ballot initiatives pushed by anti-government crusader Doug Bruce and heavily backed among the state's tea party voters.

McInnis mulls dramatic anti-tax ballot initiatives

As Colorado wrestles with an already lean state budget growing leaner by the day -- one that has forced Gov. Bill Ritter to propose repeated controversial cuts to state services this year -- a trio of budget busting anti-tax initiatives is speeding its way to the 2010 ballot. The dramatic nature of the initiatives, which plainly seek to shrink state government, and their timing, coming as they do amid an historic budget crisis, has sparked high media interest and political buzz.

Budget-busting initiative backer doesn’t yield on questionable ballot language

Jeff Gross, author of a budget-gutting ballot initiative, has refused to address any questions posed by state reviewers, including how its proposed tax amounts could even pay for the cost of collecting them. With the final version of the initiative unchanged, the riddle will be left for voters to contemplate on Election Day -- should it be approved for the ballot.

Ex-lobbyist Poundstone pushes anti-tax state ballot initiative

According to firebrand former Colorado lobbyist Freda Poundstone, "People voted for [Barack] Obama because they're desperate and want change." And to Poundstone, the change Colorado needs comes in the form of a ballot initiative she's co-sponsoring that would drastically limit state revenue by slashing taxes and fees. The plan, which is making its way through the review process on its way to the 2010 ballot, stands in stark opposition to the stimulus-spending mantra coming out of Washington, D.C.
