Identity of attorney should be public, secretary of state argues in Elbert County election security case

Colorado Newsline: The Colorado secretary of state is asking a judge to allow the name of a private attorney who was in possession of an Elbert County election system hard drive copy to be made public.

The name of the private attorney was among the information Secretary Jena Griswold was seeking when she sued Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder after he, with the help of election conspiracists, made full copies, or “forensic images,” of the election system hard drives in his own office.

One of the copied hard drives was stored at Schroeder’s office in Kiowa, and the other was stored in an undisclosed location with a “private attorney.” Schroeder, saying he wanted to ensure preservation of 2020 election records and avoid subjecting the attorney to harassment, had refused to name the attorney. But Elbert County District Court Judge Gary Kramer recently ordered Schroeder to supply to Griswold material, including the private attorney’s identity, that she sought as part of an election security investigation.
