Update 10am MST 11/5- the John Kellner, Amy Padden for 18th Judicial circuit DA is a close one! It’s down to 67 votes as of this morning. So if you live in Adams, Arapahoe, or Douglas Counties, check that your vote was counted at the Secretary of State’s website. A recount will occur.
Amy Padden has received more unwashed money from the Soros family than any other Colorado candidate for elected office.
Amy was trained by Emerge, the communist boot camp that helped shape the minds and campaigns of Candi CdeBaca and Jenna Griswold.
Where does Amy, a candidate for the 18th Judicial Circuit DA, stand on the pressing issues of 2020?
Amy says that she’s not in favor of “charging juveniles as adults…PERIOD.” That’s quite a soft approach coming from a candidate who would be prosecuting crimes in Highlands Ranch, home of the 2019 STEM school shooting that left 8 students injured and 18 year old Kendrick Castillo dead.
Would Amy tell those victims’ families that the shooters should not be prosecuted as adults?
Amy Padden also takes issue with SRO’s in the video outlined above, which is the opposite of what Coloradoans should expect from a District Attorney.
Amy promises to focus on hate crimes, immigrant communities, and other such social justice issues that are irrelevant to prosecuting crimes and have no business in the 18th Judicial Circuit’s DA discussion. Amy’s opponent, John Kellner, is tough on crime and is a lifelong District Attorney who served in the Marine Corps.
Amy is also part of InvestHer, another left leaning organization. This one supports women who are pro-choice running for office.
Amy’s radical left wing policies, especially on crime and SRO’s, are vastly different than most DA candidates, that’s for sure.
This isn’t the first time big donor George Soros money has been used to influence Colorado elections. Big names like our current Secretary of State Jena Griswold, former governor Bill Ritter, and liberal Tony Exum in Colorado Springs have all benefitted from the Soros’ family fortunes.
And it probably won’t be the last.
