The Colorado mountain town of Montezuma and its novice clerk have filed a lawsuit against every registered voter in town. In total, there are 61 registered voters in the town.

The lawsuit an April election was filled with errors, including numbers that don’t add up and mismatched ballots that had to be patched together with the clerk’s sewing machine.

According to The Denver Post, the lawsuit asks a judge to command all 61 registered voters in Montezuma to appear in court so the judge can sort out an election mess that the petition calls “fatally flawed.”

“I have never heard of anything like this,” Andrew Cole said, a spokesman for the Colorado secretary of state’s office. “This is certainly an unusual step to take.”

The lawsuit filed last week commands the voters to appear in court so a judge can examine the election results for mayor and town board which was held on – wait for it – April Fools’ Day.

Twelve people ran for mayor and Lesley Davis won by three votes. The issue here are claims that second-home owners participated, and Davis said 13 voters and at least two candidates were not residents of the town.

“This is our only option to have an objective judge take a look at the election controversy and give us his advice on how to move forward,” Davis said.

Locals say it is easy to tell who doesn’t really live there by the piles of unplowed snow in driveways.┬áSeveral town residents have hired an attorney to challenge the lawsuit.

“Now I’m paying someone to sue me,” Montezuma voter Chris Baker said. “It’s fairly disturbing that the town is using our tax money to sue us.”

    Please don’t let the Virginia State Board of Canvassers get a hold of this idea. They are always looking for an excuse to have our elections decided in court and would have us all in front of a judge faster than you can say hanging chad.

    Ah, the tip of the iceberg known as “Obama’s quest for a New World Order” has finally been exposed.

    Sorry, I was channeling the combined delusional psyches of Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, and Allen West for a moment there.

      Whoa, dude! That’s some powerful drugs dragging you back to this dimension!

      I understand that the latest tin foil hat rumor has illegals with thighs like cantaloupes smuggling bales of ebolas across the Mexican border…

        calves, not thighs — the delusional phrase has the advantage of alliteration: cantaloupe calves!

        • M D Reese August 17th, 2014 at 10:19 pm

          That’s even worse somehow. I guess that leaves them thighs the size of watermelons.

    Um, did the unplowed snow part refer to April or August?

    Now they know what it’s like to live in a community with HOA. We pay dues and they use those funds to sue us for mildew on our sidewalk. Ain’t life grand!

    The Colorado mountain town is just stealing an election, It’s the Republican Way. It’s difficult to run the HOA’s don’t you know..?┬┐

    Sounds like the clerk couldn’t get local higher up officials to investigate, and the clerk is doing the only thing available to address election fraud. instead of suing everybody, should it just be swept under the rug – that’s what we did in the city I worked for… nobody would listen when I pointed out how the city boundaries changed a few times a year, often zig zagging around houses, and people who didn’t even live there ran for office. City clerk wouldn’t back me (she was embezzling money) and the county officials were buddies with the crooks… bravo to this brave clerk for getting the word out. Wish we would have had Internet like this 20 years ago…
