Appeal denied: Former Secretary of State Scott Gessler violated public trust

http://www.coloradoindependent.com/wp-content/themes/ColoradoIndependent/timthumb.php?src=&w=647&zc=3

Former Secretary of State Scott Gessler broke the rules and violated the public trust by spending Secretary of State office money for personal and political gain, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission in 2013. Gessler appealed the decision, and today, the Colorado Court of Appeals decided the IEC was right.

“The state should not spend another penny defending former Secretary Gessler’s position that elected officials have the right to use public money for personal and political gain,” said Luis Toro, director of Colorado Ethics Watch, the group that initially filed the complaint.

Gessler spent taxpayers’ money to travel to the Republican Party’s National Election Law Seminar before the Republican National Convention.

Senator Slimey

Inhofe

Watching C-span

He's holding forth on climate again, this time without a snowball. But he's still painfully difficult to listen to. I actually feel bad for his staffers, can't imagine what working in his office must be like. As incredibly stupid as he comes across, the more frightening thought is that there are people who agree with him and voted for him.

And I write this from the state that replaced climate activist Mark Udall with environmental hazard Cory Gardner.

My brain hurts.

Winner(s)

Congratulations to this young man! Further credit to the subject of his essay, Tom Selders.

I've written here, before, about watching the horrific raid at the meat plant as it happened. The events of that day were soul-wrenching, as were the days and weeks that followed. Many of those families are still reeling.

Not mentioned in the essay was the involvement of our DA in planning and executing the raid that exceeded the limits set forth in the warrants. That DA was Ken Buck, who now occupies the House seat vacated by Cory Gardner; and Buck has his own unsavory history with immigration issues. The city and county remain in the grip of Republicans, as does the congressional district.

That said, we continue to make our presence known. The GOP has 38% of the registered voters, independents and Dems split the remainder. If you have occasion to be in northern Colorado, especially Greeley, get in touch. If you're here when we're having one of our events, join us; we'll be pleased to introduce you to Tom Selders, he's one of us now.

Meanwhile, please use the link to read the essay. It really is well done and quite compelling.

All Aboard the Super-Friendly Ultrasound Bus!

Yes, this is how Colorado Senate Republicans are going about trying to force vaginal ultrasounds.
