DENVER, Colo. (AP) Gov. John Hickenlooper is asking Colorado's attorney general to look into what he calls a political stunt by a Republican activist who switched his residency so he could vote in the recall election of Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs.

Hickenlooper said in a statement Monday attempts to disrupt the election could result in criminal prosecution.

Jon Caldara says he was trying to make a point that a new election law passed by Democrats and signed into law by Hickenlooper in May changed residency requirements.

Morse and another Democratic senator, Angela Giron, face recall elections Tuesday for their support for gun legislation in the 2013 session.
