Description The year was also one of great political intrigue in Colorado. In a matter of 24 hours the state had three Governors. It appeared Democrat Alva Adams had been elected for a third time. But voter fraud allegations caused Republican James Peabody to be installed. Then fraud allegations against him caused the Lieutenant Governor, Republican Jesse McDonald, to assume the office.
