Judge bars nutty Republican election official from going near Colorado elections she once oversaw

Tina Peters, a Colorado county clerk, had finally gotten what she deserves, according to this article:

Tina Peters, the Colorado county clerk under indictment for allegedly tampering with voting equipment, is prohibited from overseeing Mesa County’s 2022 primary and general elections, a judge ordered on Tuesday.

Ruling in a lawsuit filed in January by Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold and a Mesa County voter, Mesa County District Court Judge Valerie J. Robison issued an injunction to prevent Peters or her deputy, Belinda Knisley, from serving as the Western Slope county’s designated election official.

It’s the second time the same judge has barred Peters from having an oversight role in the county’s elections, following a similar ruling last fall that prevented Peters from managing the off-year election.

Sometimes local judges do the right thing and put these screwballs in the their place.
