Election-denying Colorado clerk surrenders to authorities

July 22, 2022

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A rural Colorado official known as the state’s most prominent election denier surrendered to authorities amid allegations she violated the terms of her release as she awaits trial on accusations of breaking into her county’s election system.

Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters turned herself at the Pitkin County Jail in Aspen in Thursday night and was booked, said Parker Lathrop, the county’s chief deputy of operations.

She was released on bond later that night, Lathrop said. Authorities claim she had violated bail conditions by contacting workers at the Mesa County elections office.

A warrant for her arrest had been issued less than a week after Peters’ lawyer convinced a judge not to send her back to jail because of allegations she improperly traveled out of state while awaiting trial.

1. So what's up with her being released just a few hours after turning herself in?

Shouldn't violating the terms of your release mean you stay locked up until trial?

2. I would like to know that too, this doesn't make sense

And she actually violated the bail terms TWICE
