Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to step into the light. Some people need to help somebody, when the edge of surrender’s in sight. Pam Anderson is firmly in the latter category, after her win in the Republican primary for Colorado secretary of state on Tuesday night.

Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to step into the light. Some people need to help somebody, when the edge of surrender’s in sight. Pam Anderson is firmly in the latter category, after her win in the Republican primary for Colorado secretary of state on Tuesday night.

Anderson handily defeated Mesa County treasurer Tina Peters, who ran on a platform of election denialism, by fifteen points. Trump supporter Peters, who had the backing of MyPillow founder Mike Lindell and Overstock founder Patrick Byrne, has been indicted on ten felony and misdemeanor counts by a grand jury in her state, after, according to NBC:

“…authorities alleged she allowed an unauthorized person to attend a Dominion software installation — what election officials call a trusted build — last May and copied the hard drives of her county’s voting machines. Soon after that incident, data including passwords for the county’s machines were posted online. The machines then had to be replaced.”

Anderson relished her victory, saying: “I will continue my fight for restoring the confidence of Colorado voters against lies and the politicians or interest groups that seek to weaponize elections administration for political advantage.”

It’s at this juncture that Cockburn must unfortunately point out that there is more than one Pam Anderson. The bottle-blonde red-swimsuit-wearing Nineties icon is currently starring as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway, not running for office.

Her namesake is the brunette Republican former clerk of Jefferson County, Colorado, who stood up for common sense against Peters and second-placed Mike O’Donnell, another 2020 election denier.

Peters, though, was magnanimous in defeat. Just kidding: she claimed the primary was rigged against her. “We didn’t lose, we just found evidence of more fraud,” she told her supporters. “They’re cheating and we’ll prove it once again.”

Cockburn wonders how Peters came by this supposed “evidence” that could derail Anderson’s burgeoning career. Has Tommy Lee checked his safe lately?
