Colorado: State Representative facing recall threats over statements on Planned Parenthood shooting

State Representative JoAnn Windholz (R) is facing recall threats over her statement apparently blaming Planned Parenthood for the November 27 shooting at its Colorado Springs Clinic. Windholz said in a Facebook post and a written statement (that was later removed) which says in part:

"Violence is never the answer, but we must start pointing out who is the real culprit. The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any Planned Parenthood facility is Planned Parenthood themselves. So Planned Parenthood: YOU STOP THE VIOLENCE INSIDE YOUR WALLS."

Windoholz won her 2014 election by only 106 votes, so she does seem like a prime candidate. Looks like petitioners would need about 4715 signatures (25% of turnout) to get on the ballot.
