Fearful Of Fellow Legislator, Colo. Lawmakers Began Wearing Kevlar At State Capitol

Colorado state Reps. Alec Garnett (right) and Matt Gray (left) said that in recent weeks they had taken to wearing bulletproof vests while at the Capitol for fear of violence from a fellow member who was expelled Friday.

“I put on my bulletproof vest,” said Assistant Majority Leader Alec Garnett. “And I button up my shirt and I go into the members’ bathroom and I tie my tie.”
