Take us to your leader: Group wants Colorado UFO commission vote

KDVR Fox News, Denver/April 29, 2010

DENVER - Denver voters will decide in august whether to allow a commission to study extraterrestrials. But one group says 'not so fast.'

The Mission For Inhibiting Bureaucracy - or M.I.B. - recently registered with the city as a political committee against "The Denver Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission."

Supporters for the commission, including Jeff Peckman, say for decades the government has covered up the existence of aliens, of alien abductions, and extraterrestrial cures for cancer.

He wants to investigate these claims and post the findings on the city's website.

Hollywood has long created the extraterrestrials most of us are familiar with, like e.t. and those from signs or alien.

But Peckman says he's heard of hundreds of government whistle blowers, with top-security clearance that have seen real aliens.

"These are people that are high-ranking military officials. They were entrusted with nuclear mission launch codes and have seen flying saucers outside the gates of their nuclear mission facilities," he says.

He says there's also evidence in government documents.

"Out of 500 people, whistle blowers, where's the one shred of physical evidence? There hasn't been one shred, just contradictory testimony. This would be thrown out in court in two seconds," says M.I.B. member Matthew Baxter.

Baxter and Bryan Bonner normally disprove the existence of ghosts through the rocky mountain paranormal research society. but now they're working to disprove extraterrestrials--like this claim.

A believer says he was taken back in time by aliens and allowed to take a photograph. but m.i.b. discovered that photo came from a book.

Other photographs claim to show alien women. But the M.I.B discovered they were taken from The Dean Martin Variety Show. They say too much is at stake for the city of Denver.

"Until we have a city website ready to welcome the second coming of Jesus, or welcoming fairies, anything based in belief, not fact, this is just not a correct way to use a city government website," says Baxter.

But Peckman stands by his experts and not the M.I.B.

"(They are) two ghost hunter wannabes who are desperate for publicity, so they can get into a ghost hunter-type reality TV show," says Peckman. "This is strictly because we want people to know the facts. It's has nothing to do with our own promotions," says Bonner.

Peckman says the commission wouldn't cost taxpayers anything. The cost of the website would be paid for through grants, gifts and donations. But M.I.B. says that's not true. They say it would cost the city $23,000 a year in incidental costs. Plus, they say the election will cost $100,000 because a ballot has to be mailed to every registered voter in Denver.
