The former chairman of Colorado’s Republican Party was charged with forgery and voter fraud for allegedly forging his wife’s mail-in ballot for the 2016 election, a local Fox News affiliate reported late Tuesday.
Steven Curtis, who was the chairman of the state party from 1997 to 1999, was charged on Feb. 1 with one count of forgery of a public record, a fifth-degree felony, and an elections mail-in ballot offense, which is a misdemeanor. Curtis is accused of filling out his wife’s ballot and forging her signature.
Last fall, ahead of the 2016 election, Curtis had knocked Democrats as the party associated with voter fraud.
“It seems to me,” Curtis said in a 42-minute segment of his KLZ 560 show, “that virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats.”
