The Colorado Republican Party has called for Democrat Adam Frisch, who is running against Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) in the Centennial State’s Third Congressional District, to drop out of the race following the “unacceptable facts” of blackmail exposed by Breitbart News.
Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown released a statement Thursday morning stating:
Today, I’m calling on Adam Frisch, commonly known as ‘Aspen Adam’, to do the honorable thing and withdraw from this Congressional race. Any elected official who has made themselves subject to blackmail can’t be an effective representative for Colorado families. While many things within this story are disturbing, it’s clear to most that Adam does not have the temperament, the morals, the backbone, or the judgement needed to be a successful elected official. We need elected officials who are working for Colorado families, not trying to protect themselves from criminal positions they put themselves in.
The GOP chairwoman noted that she would “hope Colorado Democrat Chairwoman Morgan Carroll will join [her] in doing the right thing and publicly call on Mr. Frisch to withdraw from this race.”
Burton Brown was referring to the recent article by Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle, showing a man who owned a taxi service and storage facility in Aspen, Colorado, claiming to have blackmailed the high-profile Democrat congressional candidate with surveillance footage of him showing up to a storage unit facility to allegedly have an affair.
