News broke Tuesday that on February 1, Steven Curtis was charged with forgery and a mail-in-ballot offense. The forgery will amount to fifth-degree felony, while the ballot offense will be recorded as a misdemeanor. The charges allege that Curtis filled out his wife’s ballot and forged her signature for the 2016 U.S. presidential election. These charges follow a statement that Curtis made on his radio program in 2016, where he said, “Virtually every case of voter fraud I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats.”
Curtis served as the chairman of Colorado’s Republican Party from 1997 – 1999. He also oversaw the Denver Tea Party advisory board in 2011. Curtis will return to court in May. If convicted, he faces more than a year of prison time, along with a $5,000 fine.
