Inside The Triumph of “Con Man Cory”

In order to understand what happened this week in Colorado's U.S. Senate race, which saw the first ouster of a sitting U.S. Senator from this state in decades, we return to a story that came out on Election Day by Politico's Neil Malhotra, titled "Why Do Voters Believe Lies?"
The lede of the story? Colorado GOP Rep. Cory Gardner.

"There is no such thing as a federal personhood bill.” Or so said Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican candidate currently locked in a tight Senate race against Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Udall, in an interview a few weeks ago. It was a surprising statement—not only because the federal personhood bill, otherwise known as Life Begins at Conception Act, does in fact exist but also because Gardner himself co-sponsored it. “This is all politics,” he added, blaming Udall for spreading untruths about him.

It was, indeed, all about politics. Gardner’s strong support of personhood legislation might have bolstered his popularity among conservative Republicans. But after declaring his Senate bid, Gardner found himself having to appeal to a more moderate electorate (Colorado voters have repeatedly rejected a personhood ballot measure) and changed his position on the issue. So far, his equivocation hasn’t hurt him…

Note: Ordinarily this would post in the Colorado forum, but Gardner is already one of the GOP'S "golden boys". His self-serving mendacity has been overlooked for years as they continue to groom him for more upward mobility. He is going to be increasingly visible on the national scene. Rather than castigating him for his bad habit of outright lying they're turning him into a model for others. Much as I hated having him as my alleged congressman for four years, the thought of having him not representing me in the senate for six years just turns my stomach. We don't dare take our eyes off him, he has proven himself utterly unworthy of trust on any level.

Colorado deserves better

Colorado has lost a statesman and gained an opportunist. As congressman, Gardner has spent four years ignoring the constituents of his district, reliably showing up only for photo ops. Now he has an entire state to ignore.
