"'There are forces that are coming to Colorado who want to gut the oil and gas industry in this state," he said. "They are big out-of-state interests ...'
"Wigley elicited nervous laughter when he borrowed a line from Rush Limbaugh to describe those collecting signatures to put the [anti-fracking] measures on the ballot as "long-haired, maggot-infested hippie freaks.''
