Description

State Sen. Charlie Duke of Colorado was the self-appointed Father of the 10th Amendment and a leader in the Patriot Movement that has swept the country. Duke grabbed the national spotlight shortly after the 1995 bombing of the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City. In 1997, Duke accused then House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Education Secretary Bill Bennett of masterminding a series of bizarre break-ins at his Monument, Colorado townhome. After the break-in was reported, the colorful state Senator's support began to wane.
