PHIL WEISER AND THE DARK MONEY GROUPS SUPPORTING ATTACKS ON JOHN KELLNER ARE NOT TELLING YOU THE TRUTH

John Kellner Will Not Strip Away Any Reproductive Rights

Phil Weiser has falsely claimed John will try to strip away rights, but when pressed by 9 News moderator, Kyle Clark, Phil can’t give a single example. Colorado deserves an Attorney General who will tell the truth.

John has consistently said on the campaign trail that he will defend Colorado’s Reproductive Health Equity Act if it is challenged in court and that he would fight against efforts by other states to criminalize abortion access in Colorado. His opponent’s campaign is based on fear-mongering that abortion access is an issue in the AG’s race – it is not.

John Kellner has always supported and advocated for gun safety

Contrary to attack ads claims, John has been a longtime advocate for gun safety laws. Just this past year he fought to keep our streets safe by closing loopholes that allowed dangerous convicted felons to possess firearms.

John’s efforts were joined by chiefs of police from across the state as they advocated to keep guns out of the hands of convicted felony car thieves and drug dealers. Meanwhile, the current Attorney General fought against this common-sense approach to community safety.

John Kellner Will Protect Colorado’s Consumers

Phil Weiser claims that John has no positions on, expertise in, or plans for consumer protection. He is just wrong. John’s experience in consumer protection began in the Marine Corps, where as a judge advocate he worked to protect servicemembers from consumer fraud and predatory lending. As a District Attorney, John has led on education and prevention to stop scammers from taking advantage of our citizens. Recently he hosted the Senior Law & Safety Summit to educate and protect our seniors and partnered with local businesses to prevent scams.

The truth is that throughout the pandemic Colorado paid out over $73 million of Coloradoans hard-earned money to fraudsters, and the incumbent Attorney General has failed to get that money back. Now, Coloradans face higher premiums and payments because of that failure.

As a former cold case prosecutor, John Kellner knows how to investigate and prosecute some of the toughest cases out there. John Kellner will not shy away from ensuring Coloradans are protected from even the most sophisticated fraudsters.

John Kellner Does Question The Current Attorney General’s Recent Settlements

A recent investigative report highlighted the incumbent Attorney General at a $1,000 a night resort in Maui attending a conference sponsored by “more than a dozen” corporations that Phil Weiser has sued, settled, or is currently in litigation with. As Chris Toth, the former executive director of the National Association of Attorneys General, a quasi-governmental organization that provides training and resources for AGs stated in that investigated report: “Could some of these settlements have been higher? Perhaps. Perhaps not. But when you’re taking things from the people you’re suing and investigating, it certainly creates a very, very troubling perception.”

John believes that transparency is critical to building public trust. At a time when trust in our institutions is low, Colorado needs an Attorney General who will prioritize transparency and honesty. Recently, John co-led a bipartisan group of public safety leaders in launching data transparency dashboards, the first project of its kind in the entire country.
