Conservative blogger and columnist Ari Armstrong says state Sen. Scott Renfroe should resign and calls on the state GOP to "publicly condemn" the Greeley Republican for his remarks comparing homosexuality to murder during a debate over a bill to extend health benefits to same-sex partners of state employees.

Senate Minority Office ‘applauds’ mangled quote from Ritter on Gitmo

ColoradoSenateNews.com is at it again. The partisan communications operation of the Republican Colorado Senate Minority office issued a gleeful press release Monday applauding "Ritter's change of tune on Gitmo detainees." The release includes an audio clip that appears to represent Gov.

Except that's not what Ritter said on a radio broadcast Monday morning, and the audio clip included on the ColoradoSenateNews site -- while presenting itself as a seamless statement from Ritter -- edits out a lengthy discussion that narrows the topic considerably while also criticizing the Bush administration for bungling the cases against many of the Gitmo detainees.
