Democrat Adam Frisch conceded the race for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District today to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), saying that a mandated recount was unlikely to change the outcome of the election.
The Supreme Court has said it will hear the case of a Colorado website designer, Lorie Smith, who wants to be able to tell same-sex couples she won’t create a wedding website for them because it offends her religious beliefs.
Prosecutors have filed new charges against Barry Morphew, alleging the man accused of murdering his missing wife submitted a presidential ballot in her name. Morphew was recently arrested on charges of murdering his wife, Suzanne, after she disappeared a year ago. She still has yet to be found.
Court documents show he now faces one felony count for allegedly forging public documents and a misdemeanor mail in ballot offense. Bond has been set at $1,000 but he’s being held without bail on the murder charges.
According to the arrest affidavit, investigators responded to the Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder’s Office after the clerk made a report of alleged voter fraud in October of 2020. The clerk told investigators that they’d received a presidential ballot from Suzanne even though she was missing.
Morphew signed the ballot as the witness but didn’t include a signature for his missing wife.
When asked why he submitted the fraudulent ballot, Morphew told investigators, “Just because I wanted Trump to win.”
