In her latest unhinged Facebook video made around 9:30 p.m. last night (Thursday, July 21) after turning herself in at the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department Tina Peters calls Mesa County Court Judge Matthew Barrett, the judge in her criminal case, “partisan” and “malicious,” and says “his goal is to incarcerate an innocent woman.” She accuses him of “legislating from the bench.”
Barrett was the judge who kept her out of jail last week after her unauthorized trip to speak in Las Vegas on July 12. She had traveled to Nevada without Court permission, and the judge had also issued a “no travel” order for her the same day. In spite of this, the judge was lenient with her and gave her the benefit of the doubt that it could have been her attorney’s fault for not informing her of the no-travel order.
Tina urged her followers to file “a lot of ethics complaints” against Judge Barrett, and Judge Valerie Robison, the judge who legally barred Tina from carrying out elections in 2022, in another legal case that was brought against her by the Secretary of State..
Tina asks people to donate to her campaign, even though the election is over
In the video, made with far-right activist Sherronna Bishop, Tina urges her followers to donate money to her campaign account, even though the election is over and her campaign should no longer be soliciting donations. Tina says she needs hundreds of thousands of dollars “in my account by Monday for the recount,” which, under the law, and according to the Colorado Secretary of State, has no chance of commencing.
Tina also called Brandi Bantz, Mesa County’s new Designated Election Official, “Wayne Williams’ love child.” She reveals that Judge Robison has denied her latest request for travel and complains that “I’m a political prisoner.” Tina urged her followers to attend her next court hearing August 5 to “assemble and protest” and “expose the crimes these people are committing.”
As of 12:30 p.m. on Friday, there were 148 comments on the video, most of them in support of Tina, and many asking where they can send their money.
