Untitled[edit]

I'd like to upload a picture. How do I do this? Kcanges (talk) 22:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

"2013 legislative session" section probably needs to be deleted[edit]

The section reports an encounter between Hudak and a rape survivor testifying against a bill to ban weapons on college campuses. It appears to violate NPOV, and relies on sources known for their political viewpoints rather than as unbiased news outlets. 108.246.205.134 (talk) 17:39, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

I've gone in and fixed some of the inaccuracies (e.g., as originally written, the senator "interrupted" Collins, whereas in fact Hudak did not speak until told by the chair it was her turn to question), as well as removed inflammatory language, such as Collins' "comely" [sic, should have been "calmly"] reply.
The statistics cited by Hudak were that gun owners are something like 44 times more likely than attackers to be shot in cases like this, but I have not included that in the correction, since it wasn't there originally. I don't know where Hudak got her statistics from, or if they're accurate or even verifiable. 108.246.205.134 (talk) 17:55, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Section has been deleted from an unanimous source the section dealing with gun legislation has been properly sourced by various news articles including the Denver Post and YouTube video of the actual event. Further, Ms. Hudak did not cite where here statistics came from. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmorr5280 (talkcontribs) 18:07, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Resignation[edit]

The edit summary box isn't big enough. I also rewrote to try and avoid implied analysis as to the motives for resigning. Pinkbeast (talk) 18:04, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Hudak's lecture to rape victim[edit]

An editor has attempted to remove the whole quote from Hudak. That editor quotes only the part of Hudak's lecture that was quoted by the Denver Post in the article written Post article. The whole quote is available in other sources all over the Internet, but more specifically the whole quote is available at the top of the Denver Post article in the video of the event. Hudak does refer to the victim's martial arts training and the whole quote clearly shows that Hudak incorrectly assumes that the rapist did not have a gun. The victim, at the end of the video, rips Hudak for making that assumption and pointing out to her that the rapist had a gun and did not use it, except to intimidate. Only quoting what the Denver Post chose to quote is deceptive. But that full quote is in the cited source.--NK (talk) 14:08, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

The full quote is here: Former State Senator Evie Hudak lectures rape victim and assumes that rapist did not have a gun and assumes that she knows better than the victim. Hudak does not realize that she was not there.--NK (talk) 14:11, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
