The damning conference call
Not a lot of wiggle room for Ken Buck in this transcript. But read it and see for yourself. Remember, Bremer isn’t even drawing a salary and still being strong-armed into committing this crime.
Colorado Republican Party Chair, Ken Buck: “Do you understand the order of the executive committee and the central committee that you will submit the paperwork to include Mr. Stiver and Mr. Liston on the ballot, with Mr. Liston receiving the top-line vote?”
GOP Chairman for District 10, Eli Bremer: “Uh, yes, sir, I understand the central committee has adopted a resolution that requires me to sign a false affidavit to the state.”
Ken Buck: “And will you do so?”
Eli Bremer: “I will seek legal counsel as I am being asked to sign an affidavit that states Mr. Stiver received 30% of the vote. I need to seek legal counsel to find out if I am putting myself in jeopardy of a misdemeanor for doing that.”
Ken Buck: “And you understand that it is the order of the central committee that you do so?”
Eli Bremer: “I will consult with counsel. Yes, sir, I understand the central committee has ordered me to sign an affidavit stating that a candidate got 30% who did not. And I will seek legal counsel and determine if I am legally able to follow that.”
