MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Mesa County Clerk, Tina Peters turned herself in to the Pitkin County Jail Thursday on a warrant that was issued after she sent an email to multiple county clerk's offices around the state, informing them that she was seeking a hand recount of the primary race she recently lost.
According to our news partners in Denver, the email read:
"I know you have already by now been advised by the Secretary of State regarding a recount. I am, as a candidate with standing, going forward with that request in selected counties. If you have not already been notified, and if you are on the list of those counties for a hand recount, you will be notified to coordinate the day/time that is mutually agreed upon.
Thank you for your kind cooperation. Please feel free to call with questions or concerns."
The warrant was issued for Peters Thursday afternoon, calling for her arrest on charges of violation of a protection order and violation of bond conditions. This was the second arrest warrant issued for Peters in the span of a week.
Peters is currently out on bond awaiting trial on charges that she tampered with election equipment following the 2020 election.
As a condition of her bond, she wasn't supposed to have contact with anyone at the Mesa County Clerk's Office.
Peters was booked in to the Pitkin County Jail Thursday evening and was then released after posting bond.
