Hallelujah! Colorado State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt Lost His Bid for State Senate

Colorado State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt has a habit of saying completely inappropriate things, a holdover from his time hosting a Christian talk show with viewers who are as fundamentalist as he is. (He’s still hosting it today.)

Maybe the worst example of this occurred after a horrific tragedy in which a pregnant woman was attacked by a man who literally cut the fetus out of her body.

Klingenschmitt said days later that this incident occurred because abortion is legal in this country. Even his Republican colleagues couldn’t denounce him quickly enough at that point.

But those of us who have listened to him for years have come to expect illogical rhetoric like this.

Even before he was elected to office in 2014 — when he won his election with 70% of the votes — his history of past nasty comments were well-known to those who paid any attention. Here’s a brief list of some of the things he had said:

Despite all that, they voted him into office.

But that was 2014 and they know him much better now.

Klingenschmitt announced last year that he would give up his House seat to run for State Senate.

Guess what?

Coloradans finally got their shit together and voted him out of office:


He will have no more political power! Hallelujah!

The down side is that the man who defeated him, Bob Gardner, is also a conservative Christian whose views on social and moral issues are abhorrent.

But at least he doesn’t have a TV show…?
