Katie Pavlich over at Town Hall has just reported that controversial anti-gun Colorado state Senator, who told a rape victim that she didn’t need a gun to protect herself, will resign to avoid a recall election.
Democratic state Sen. Evie Hudak has resigned her seat to forestall a recall effort launched by constituents who sought to oust her from office for her support of gun-control laws passed by lawmakers last spring.
The senator made the announcement in a letter to Democratic leadership Wednesday. She did not attend a news conference scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Arvada Library, where some constituents offered words of support.
“By resigning I am protecting these important new laws for the good of Colorado and ensuring that we can continue looking forward,” Hudak wrote in her resignation letter in regard to her gun votes.
Hudak’s move ends the recall process, as now a Democratic vacancy committee can appoint someone to fill her seat until 2014.
