DENVER: After an investigation by Denver7 reporter Marshall Zelinger confirmed ProgressNow Colorado’s suspicions of petition fraud committed by the U.S. Senate campaign of Republican Jon Keyser, uncovering far more extensive fraud than previously disclosed, [1] political director Alan Franklin released the following statement:

“The extent of the apparent petition fraud committed by Jon Keyser’s campaign uncovered by Denver7 is worse than anything we could have foreseen. It is increasingly evident that Keyser owes his spot on the 2016 ballot to fraud. Keyser must immediately withdraw from the U.S. Senate race. In addition, action must be taken by appropriate authorities to determine the full extent of this fraud and to prosecute everyone responsible.”
