Texas drilling company behind Super PAC supporting Tipton
A Texas gas and oil company that wants to drill in Western Colorado has formed a Super PAC to support the re-election of Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez.
SG Interests of Houston is the sole donor to the Colorado Future Fund, a Super PAC that formed in August. The group recently spent $10,000 each on mailers against President Barack Obama and Tiptonís Democratic opponent, Sal Pace.
The Colorado Future Fund lists its address at Zakhem Law in Denver. The firmís president, John Zakhem, is also the lawyer for Tiptonís re-election campaign.
Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. Louis D. Brandeis
