As reported last night, a technology manager in the Elections
Division of Colorado’s Secretary of State’s office was selling

Daniel J. Kopelman of Aurora, CO, whose duties include oversight and
maintenance of the state’s master voter registration database, was
offering “GOP campaign help” in the form of voter and “fresh”
fundraising lists at the web site of his privately-owned company

In response to ePluribus Media’s inquiries, a spokesperson for Sec.
of State Mike Coffman stated that his office had no knowledge of
Kopelman’s “side business” and saw his actions as a “conflict of

Deputy Sec. of State William A. Hobbs met with the state’s voter
database manager and directed him to take down his web site.
