Lauri Clapp's No Uptight Conservative
She like flowers and letting her hair down. But don't cross her, or you'll get an eyeful.
Just ask Rep. Cory Gardner, whose skin still burns, despite having won a MUD (Medal Under the Dome) Award.
Ouch! Being a Rookie Really Hurts MUD
•Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Yuma
Gardner followed his heart instead of partisan politics Feb. 9 when he voted againt a fellow Republican's bill on divorce that critics said was horribly flawed. The sponsor, Rep. Lauri Clapp, R-Centennial, was livid, and she and Rep. Lynn Hefley, R-Colorado Springs, gave Gardner nasty looks the rest of the committee meeting. A trip to the woodshed and noogies followed.
Here's a story on the divorce bills Clapp sponsored. She says her own divorce had nothing to do with the bills to end a 90-day waiting period, take a class on the impact of divorce on children, and a redundant bill to stop annoying or embarrassing behavior by a party to the divorce.
