After a vote of no confidence in Colorado House Minority Leader Mike Lynch (R-Wellington) Monday morning yielded an indecisive tie vote, ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest multi-issue progressive advocacy organization, called on Lynch to act where his caucus failed to do so.

“New video of House Minority Leader Mike Lynch’s arrest on DUI and gun charges reveals even greater misconduct from Lynch than the police reports first indicated,”  said Sara Loflin, executive director of ProgressNow Colorado. “Minority Leader Lynch’s brazen attempt to use his position to try and evade responsibility disqualifies Lynch from serving in a position of leadership in the Colorado House. Since his caucus is too morally compromised to act, Lynch owes it to the people of Colorado to do the right thing and step down as minority leader so he can work to rebuild public trust in himself as a lawmaker.”
