Colorado: Secretary of State rejects Pueblo County's attempt to get state to pay for recall

Secretary of State Scott Gessler has rejected a request to get the state to pay for the expense of the recall. Pueblo estimates these costs to $180,000. 

While reimbursement and recall expense is a regular discussion, this one seems to be based on a state statute regarding the term "political subdivision." This is actually one of those rulings that you can see hurting their political positions. Pueblo County voters might be a little more annoyed by the fact that they are paying for the recall (helping the Democratic state Senator Giron). However, that may be too much conjecture on my part.
