Colorado clerk is indicted for election tampering and misconduct

County clerk Tina Peters of Mesa County, Colorado has been indicted by a grand jury for unlawful access of election data, identity theft, criminal impersonation, and a number of other charges related to her actions following the 2020 election. Peters has repeatedly said that she believes the 2020 Presidential election may have been fraudulently stolen from Donald Trump and that her efforts to have election data reanalyzed were taken in her capacity as a concerned public servant. Meanwhile, leaders within the Colorado Republican party are urging Peters to suspend her campaign for Colorado Secretary of State on their party’s ticket while she remains under indictment.
