Here is your first look at “Rocky Mountain Heist,” the movie about how the political right thinks the political left took control of Colorado. The documentary will be available on TV in a matter of days, and a website for it, www.rockymountainheist.com, went live this afternoon.
Citizens United, the conservative group that brought the landmark campaign finance case to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, won the right to put out the movie before the Nov. 4 election without disclosing its financial backers from a federal appeals court in Denver this week. The Virginia-based non-profit successfully argued it deserved the same protections as other media sources and shouldn’t have to adhere to state campaign finance rules on electioneering.
The trailer gives a glimpse of a lot of familiar conservative faces from Colorado politics: former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a two-time candidate for governor; Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, who’s running for Congress this year; Jon Caldara, the president of the Independence Institute; and Laura Carno, a Republican strategistand founder of the local nonprofit I Am Created Equal.
