Arrest warrant issued for pro-Trump county clerk who tampered with election equipment

A Colorado judge has issued an arrest warrant for Mesa County clerk Tina Peters, who was barred from overseeing elections after she was indicted on charges of tampering with election equipment and official misconduct, NBC News reports.

The judge ruled that Peters had violated the conditions of her $25,000 bond which barred her from traveling by taking a trip to Las Vegas to speak at a conference of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association without first seeking approval. Now she must return to jail and wait for a hearing, according to the judge’s order.

As NBC News points out, conference was marketed as a response to a “nationwide call for election fraud investigations by sheriffs and law enforcement” and as part of an effort to pursue “the truth regarding the 2020 election.”

Peters was indicted on 10 felony and misdemeanor charges in relation to an alleged election security breach where she let an unauthorized person attend a Dominion software installation in May 2021 and copied the hard drives of her county’s voting machines.
