Erotic novelist/politician won't get $54 million

Bubis was seeking the Republican ticket to replace then-Senate President John Morse in the recall election last year. She had some early support from big names, but the conservatives ultimately chose former City Councilor Bernie Herpin as their candidate. Morse was recalled in September, Herpin took his place, and the rest is history.
Or not. The thing about Bubis is she wasn't just any
failed candidate. She lost her shot at a Senate seat after it was revealed that she had authored pornographic romance novels under a pen name. Bubis didn't take well to having her naughty past outed — the story was paraded around national media — and went after state and local Republican leaders and entities for $54 million, saying they owed her the money for ruining her reputation and her chance for political office.
But that didn't work out for her either. Here's the latest from the El Paso County Republicans:
You may have heard that Jaxine Bubis, who ran for the Republican nomination in the Senate District 11 recall election of Sen. John Morse, placed liens on the property of several individuals and entities, including the El Paso County Republican Central Committee and El Paso County Republican Chairman Jeff Hays.
We want you to know that we proactively resolved the issue.
Last week, a judge declared the liens to be spurious, entered an order to have them removed, and ordered Jaxine Bubis to pay our attorney's fees.
Case closed. Now let's go win some more elections.

So, remember Jaxine Bubis?
