Cases of complaints of voter intimidation at the March 24 El Paso County GOP assembly have been closed without taking action.

The Independent reported on the complaints on April 18, outlining allegations of harassment of delegates by El Paso County Sheriff's Office Lt. Bill Huffor and a comment allegedly made by Sheriff Bill Elder to a delegate expressing dismay he planned to vote for a "fucking cripple," meaning Elder's primary opponent retired Air Force Col. Mike Angley.

In a letter to one complainant, the Sheriff's Office Professional Standards Unit said the unit had finished the investigation and "was unable to substantiate any policy violation(s)." Elder has denied the allegations.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs police department also received a complaint. UCCS was unable to provide the Indy with a status report by our press time.
