Posted on 06/04/2020 1:47:10 PM PDT by george76
John Hickenlooper, the Democrat Senate candidate, will be forced by a team from the Attorney Generals office to appear before the states Independent Ethics Commission after refusing their subpoena.
Commissioner Bill Leone on Hickenlooper: "I believe our subpoena was very clear ... he currently is in contempt of that subpoena."
Leone asks Grueskin if he, Grueskin, will take part in the hearing. The attorney says he will
Colorado's Independent Ethics Commission votes 5-0 to have the Attorney General's Office enforce its subpoena of U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper
Hickenlooper had been subpoenaed to appear on Thursday morning for a hearing looking into charges that he accepted illegal travel-related gifts to various events throughout 2018. Previously, hed been accused of improperly using federal funds for his personal political benefit.
The onetime presidential hopeful is not exactly popular with some of his fellow Democrat officer-seekers. After having promised not to run for the Senate this year, Hickenloopers candidacy forced out several contenders who couldnt hope to compete with his war chest or name recognition.
In its final months, the former governors administration used federal funds from a 2003 account to cover a prominent Democratic attorney $525-an-hour fee and spent $13,385 for a legacy website designed to tell the story of how the governor and his team paved the way for Colorados journey and growth.
Some of those federal funds came from the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, which was meant to aid state governments not elected officeholders following the recession caused by the 9/11/2001 terror attacks.
More to come, Im sure, so stay tuned.

This is the only hope gardner’s got. Not that gardner is much better then chickenlooper. I despise gardner, he is the reason I changed to independent after almost 40 years as a registered repub. But in the end, gardner is better then chickenlooper.
“Travel included a trip to Turin, Italy, for the Bilderberg Meeting,”
This is the interesting one. Who paid for it? Whose ring did he kiss?
We need Gardner to support Trump’s Judge nominees ( which Hick never will).
An Eddie Gein kind of name.
Eat your vegetables, kids, or tonight when you’re in bed, the Grueskin will get you.
“Hickenlooper took heat for telling a reporter that the media should be protecting me on stuff like this, in response to questions about the ethics investigation.”
Of course that’s what the old media here is supposed to do. But Hick violated the rules when he said it out loud.
Denver lawyer Mark Grueskin was made a special assistant attorney general and appointed in October 2018 to handle the ethics complaint against Hickenlooper.

there’s been tons of kangaroo commissions and boards pulling various fascist stunts in my state, e.g., the baker they tried to put out of business which went all the way to SCOTUS
don’t know what this one is, but Hick is no more corrupt than the average politician and looks like the “charges that he accepted illegal travel-related gifts to various events throughout 2018” sounds pretty petty to me ...
i’m no fan of this nimrod,but this whole deal is nothing but a gig by the ultra left to shitcan hickenlooper right before his Dem senatorial primary against uber-leftist andrew Romanoff
romanoff is such an extremest, i’m hoping he wins the Dem primary ...
Nice Ed Fein reference bet most here don’t know of ed’s Wisconsin exploits
Damn spell check GEIN
Changing your “Chickenlooper” to “Chickenpooper” because this “john” is full of leftist crap.
I hope he goes so far down in flames that the Devil is envious.
“the baker they tried to put out of business”
New charges were filed when declined to make a tranny cake.

Ah that leftist sense of entitlement. How dare we question our betters? :-/
I am not a huge fan of Gardner either but we need to hold the Senate. Just imagine if the Dems had both houses of Congress. There would be no one to stop another impeachment.
“I despise Gardner, he is the reason I changed to independent after almost 40 years as a registered repub.”
How about that? Me too.
“Keep in mind, though, that the state went to Bernie decisively.”
But how much fraud did that entail? I suspect that if only valid votes were counted, the result would have been different.
Thank you for the ping, George.
A trip to Turin? What does that have to do with state business?
And for a Bilderburg meeting no less? Very odd.
Really? This was a Democratic primary, you know. What’s the point of fraud when all the candidates are yours? (serious question)
