The Obamacare supporters in Colorado are on an unlucky streak.
Last week, Democrats falsely accused conservative opponents of the health care takeover of vandalizing their party headquarters. Turned out the “hate crime” was perpetrated by anarchist nutballs.
Next, supporters of Congressman John Salazar falsely accused a town hall protester of hurling a death threat at the Democrat.
Grand Junction police say the report of a death threat against U.S. Rep. John Salazar turned out to be “unfounded.”
The threat reportedly had been made outside Salazar’s Grand Junction office Aug. 24 as health care reform opponents and supporters squared off.
“People who witnessed the interaction between the man who made the complaint and the suspect confirmed they never heard any direct threats made regarding Congressman Salazar,” said Kate Porras, spokeswoman for the Grand Junction police.
“Also, a (Grand Junction police officer) in close proximity when the interaction took place never heard any direct threats made against Salazar by the suspect,” she said.
Asked whether the person filing the report faced any kind of charge, such as filing a false report, Porras said, “Not at this time. We don’t have any information to show the person who filed the report intentionally gave us false information.”
Does the story sound familiar?
