He Said 'Only Democrats Commit Voter Fraud', Now He's Facing Jail Time For What He Did

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. It seems that the former Republican party chairman of Colorado is facing charges of voter fraud only months after claiming on his local radio show that only Democrats commit that crime. 

Steve Curtis appeared in court this week. He is looking at felony forgery and misdemeanor voter fraud charges.

According to prosecutors, Curtis completed, signed and mailed in his ex-wife's ballot for the 2016 presidential election without her consent.

The unbounded hypocrisy of Curtis is made public through his comments on his radio talk show (Wake Up! with Steve Curtis) last fall, when he remarked:

“It seems to me, that virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats.”
However, Curtis would not answer reporters' questions outside of the courtroom. 

'We're not going to talk about this,” Curtis said when a reporter followed him around the corner.

Curtis’ ex-wife Kelly was quite happy to explain the story behind the charges in an interview with a Denver TV station. 

Kelly said she had left Curtis and moved to South Carolina a few months earlier, when she called the Weld County Elections Office in October to see how she could vote in the election, as she was still registered in Colorado. 

She was flabbergasted when officials informed her that her ballot had already been filled out and sent in from her former address. 

“I was just completely stunned I thought there had to be some kind of mistake,” Kelly Curtis commented. 

Elections officials eventually determined that the signature on Curtis' ballot did not match her signature:

“We compared her (ballot) signature just to the signatures on her registration,” Weld County Clerk and Recorder Carly Koppes explained.  

The Weld County Clerk and Recorder's Office was notified, and the District Attorney's Office decided to charges against Curtis. 

Kelly noted in the interview she was “livid over the whole situation' and never imagined that her ex-husband would take away her right to vote.”
