Mugshot Surfaces of Colorado Representative Pushing for Gun Control

Rep. Rhonda Fields

Colorado Rep. Rhonda Fields has sponsored four gun control bills that would ban magazines with capacities greater than 15, mandate background checks for private sales, tax gun ownership and ban concealed-carry on campus, and that’s totally her mugshot.

Fields has multiple arrests for shoplifting and larceny (.pdf) and is also identified by the names Rhonda Charlotte Woods, Rhonda Chollet Combs, Carolyn Ann Fields, Rhonda Marshall Fields and just Marshall.

The information was dug up yesterday by Media Tracker, a group that describes itself as a “conservative non-profit, non-partisan investigative watchdog dedicated to promoting accountability in the media and government across Colorado through cutting edge research and communications initiatives.”

In her defense, she did not hide her history when running for election. “It’s a very embarrassing dark, desperate time in my life. I disclosed it when I decided to run, but it’s something I don’t like to talk about,” said Fields. “It’s something I’m not proud of. It happened over 20 years ago. I had to leave a husband who was addicted to drugs. I stole food to feed my kids. I’m so glad I’m not the woman I was back then.”
