You're known by the company you keep. So far Rep. Cory Gardner (R) has not repudiated Ready's comments, nor his endorsement of Ready for County Commissioner in Pueblo, Colorado.

Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican Senate candidate in Colorado, attended an August event hosted by a GOP county candidate who has said he doesn't believe the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting has been proven.

The Pueblo County GOP's 20th Annual Steak Fry on Aug. 23 was hosted at the home of Tom Ready, the Republican candidate for Pueblo County commissioner and former county party chair, who had posted a story on his Facebook page that was skeptical of the Sandy Hook shooting. Ready also said in a recent debate that he didn't believe the shooting had been proven.

Photos from the event can be seen here, on Facebook. Ready and Gardner can be seen here together, at another more formal event.


United States Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut has called Gardner's support of Tom Ready "sickening".
