A grand jury has indicted a Colorado county clerk and her deputy on charges related to an election security breach last summer.
Tina Peters is a Republican running for secretary of state, who has promoted false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.
Charges against Peters come amid death threats against election workers in the U.S., stemming from a national disinformation campaign, claiming election tampering in 2020.
Peters, who is county clerk and recorder in Mesa County in western Colorado, faces 10 counts, including seven felony charges and three misdemeanors.
Her bond was set for $500,000 cash.
