Having the misfortune of living in his district, I follow and write about disastrous DA Mark Hurlbert more than anyone. He had no problem accepting the maximum limit of campaign contributions from Ali Hasan and his family, the leading Muslim contributor to GOP candidates in the US (head of Muslims for Bush). He failed to recuse himself from a criminal investigation into Hasan in 2008 and ultimately no-filed the case behind closed doors, despite both Hurlbert and Hasan both being active Republicans in Vail and Breckenridge.

Moreover, according to Hasan, Hurlbert helped in his 2008 campaign for the state house. Then, in 2010,Hasan and famile accounted for about 20 percent of Hurlbert's campaign contributions for his failed run for the Colorado State Senate. Here's the link:

I would agree with your conclusion about the bribe but for one factor - Hurlbert seems to have a general reversal of priorities in prosecution that calls for going light on serious cases and Ahabesque-obsessive on stupid cases. He charged two veteran women mountain bikers with felonies for swapping race bibs in a local amateur race - ; he is prosecuting for the third time a guy for kiddie porn, despite two prior hungs - the last 9-3 NG; he prosecuted relentlessly a kid who threw a snowball at someone without injuring the person. It goes on and on an on with this guy.

Then, another guy without provocation and in a drunken rage pulls a black woman buy her hair across the floor of a bar, pulling half of it out, while screaming the n-word and c-word at her. Rightfully charged with a felony, Hurl pleads the case to a misdemeanor and 60 days work release.
