Skip to comments.Are Governor Ritter and Stephanie Villafuerte having an affair?
Posted on 01/05/2010 10:34:47 PM PST by george76
Governor Bill Ritter and US attorney nominee Stephanie Villafuerte had an affair as early as 2006, confirming reports circulating among political "in-the-know" for years...
The Senate Judiciary Committee will review Villafuerte's nomination for US attorney soon. Senator Max Baucus created controversy by nominating his mistress for a US attorney position, making the Villafuerte's relationship with the Governor relevant.
Greg Kolomitz, Governor Ritter's disgraced former campaign manager, first made the allegations in 2006, when he traded insults with Jim Carpenter, Ritter's chief of staff at the time.
Now more staff are admitting there was an affair. If there was an affair, a legitimate legal issue arises. Did Governor Ritter favor Stephanie Villafuerte with a nomination for US attorney because she was or had been his mistress?
The Senate Judiciary should ask Villafuerte, did you have an affair with Governor Bill Ritter?
In light of Senator Max Baucus's nomination of his mistress for a US attorney position, the Villafuerte accusations are relevant. Baucus was separated (or so he says) at the time he nominated his mistress. Both Villafuerte and Ritter are married.

* Un-expected *
No wonder none of these government elects has time to do business. They are all to busy acting like rabbits.
Faced with persistent questions from a leading Republican senator, Stephanie Villafuerte on Monday withdrew her name from consideration to become Colorado’s next U.S. attorney.
Stephanie Villafuerte was withdrawing because of “political attacks” ...
The move comes two days after Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, asked that consideration of her nomination be delayed because her record is “incomplete.”
And exactly where is this relevant? Like, what state, for instance?
So what's the problem..................Oh, not to each other.....never mind.
As usual, “the affairs of state must take precedence over ... the affairs of state”.
-Gov. William J. Le Petomaine
Montana Senator Max Baucus created the earlier controversy by nominating his mistress for a US attorney position, making the Villafuerte’s relationship with the Colorado Governor Ritter complicated.
Stephanie Villafuerte was Ritter’s employee *with benefits* since at least 2006.
Ritter also was nominating his mistress for a US attorney position ?
I get the Montana part, but Villatuerte and Ritter are unknowns to me.
PLEASE TYPE OUT THE STATE SO ALL OF US KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!
Thank YOU - Colorado was missing out of this article.
Not everyone is familiar with the particulars of every state’s internal politics.
PLEASE! Put the state’s name of these reprehensible politicians somewhere near the top of the article so the rest of us know who the Hell they are and where they are from in this great nation of ours.
Colorado governor Ritter.
Tiger Woods who?
She’s a MAN, right?????
What political party are all of these people in? The article (surprise, surprise) doesn’t mention it in the excerpt posted..........
Wonder what will happen to Cory now?
Villafuerte attempted to squash accusations that she’d accessed a criminal database for political purposes ...
In the meantime, Villafuerte’s name has just surfaced in another unflattering story. The Independence Institute’s Todd Shepherd has just published a piece that begins: “A check for $30,000 written by Greg Kolomitz to repay the ‘Ritter Inaugural Fund’ was not immediately deposited into that account, but rather was turned into a cashiers check by Stephanie Villafuerte.”
Makes you wonder if turning campaign funds into cashiers checks was standard practice.
Thanks for the posts.
This is going to make for some very hard choices for Colorado Dems. I'd say the odds are very long against anyone jumping into this race and holding the seat for them. Will Perlmutter or Hickenlooper give up safe, comfortable seats to do it?? Will Andy Romanoff quit a probable losing Senate campaign to trade it for a probable losing Governor campaign???
Will Ken Salazar give up the best office in Washington not the Oval Office to run an Obama-tainted campaign????
Too bad that Ritter and the other DUmmies are dropping out now.
They should have been taken their beating in November like a man...8-)
They all know that this stuff would leak out in September, so they are doing damage control now.
Don't cry for me Colorado
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
She’s not bad looking for an older man.
Villafuerte means - Hot House or House Now on Fire- en espanol.
