Here is a photo of the former Secretary of State who is now the Colorado Springs City Councilor Wayne Williams, in cozy, maskless proximity to his friends Suzanne Taheri (You probably know her as Suzanne Staiert, former deputy foreign minister and failed SD-27 candidate for 2020) and the ubiquitous Lynn BartelsWilliams’ former spokesperson and longtime local media representative became a Republican communications professional and columnist for the Colorado Springs Gazette.
They all had dinner at Suzanne’s yesterday! We hope it was delicious and thanks for helping local businesses like Dominion voting systems. It’s a funny joke unless you’re one of the many Republicans who doesn’t laugh.
But wait a minute. Doesn’t Suzanne Taheri live in Arapahoe County, which is the Senate District she wants this year? And isn’t Arapahoe County on Safer at home red on the state COVID-19 dial for public health restrictions? We ask this rhetorically because the answer is yes, just like in El Paso County, where Councilor Williams lives, Level Red restrictions also apply. And the instructions from the Tri-County Health Department It is not ambiguous to serve Arapahoe County when meeting at a friend’s house take away during Level Red restrictions:
Now look guys, it’s 2020 – and if everyone in this picture is in the same place of residence for the next 14 days, that’s totally cool for us. Otherwise, unfortunately, we have one more elected official here who is casually disobeying public health regulations during the third and deadliest wave of COVID-19 pandemic combs in Colorado. As readers will know, another elected Colorado city government official was enthusiastically drawn across front pages and cable networks across the country over Thanksgiving.
To like Bill Engvall says Wayne Williams, “here is your mark.”
