Democratic state senator from Colorado Springs indicted on felony charge

1 min read


State Sen. Pete Lee, a Colorado Springs Democrat and the chair of the influential Senate Judiciary Committee, has been indicted on a felony charge alleging that he lied about where he lives for the purpose of voting.

Prosecutors in El Paso County said on Tuesday that Lee is accused of providing false information as to his residence, a Class 5 felony.

Lee had previously been accused of not living in his state Senate district — Senate District 11 — which is a requirement under state law. The Colorado Springs Independent reported in June 2020 that Lee listed his address as a house near downtown Colorado Springs that is in his Senate district instead of a home twice the size in Cheyenne Cañon, which is listed as his wife’s home but is in a different district, Senate District 12.
