About the message:

This mailer from super PAC Colorado Moms Who Care attacks Democratic candidate Brianna Titone for being anti-education. She faces Republican Vicki Pyne for the seat vacated by GOP Rep. Lang Sias, who is running for lieutenant governor.

The group cites no evidence for it's claims. And it's unclear if misspelling the word performing is meant to be ironic or is simply a misspelling.

About the messenger: Colorado Moms Who Care is a super PAC supporting candidates "who stand for family values." It is operated by Kristine Brown, an attorney focused on "sanctity of life issues." She was the co-sponsor of a failed 2008 "personhood" amendment in Colorado.

The messenger's money: The group received $66,000 from Values First Colorado, another super PAC Brown is affiliated with. That group's money comes from the oil and gas industry and business interests such as PhARMA Colorado. Values First shares an address with Rearden Strategic, a company affiliated with Joe Neville, son of GOP Sen. Tim Neville and brother of House Minority Leader Patrick Neville.
