Democrat Senate candidate John Hickenlooper charged with violating ethics laws

Former Colorado Governor and current Senate candidate John Hickenlooper (D-CO) has been charged by the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission with violating state ethics laws for accepting favors from corporations while he was still governor in 2018. 

Hickenlooper is the favorite to unseat incumbent Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), but it seems that Democrat strategists trying to flip the seat blue may have made a catastrophic miscalculation.

Breitbart reported on Friday:

The ethics commission ruled that Hickenlooper, a U.S. Senate candidate, violated state ethics laws when he allowed large corporations to cover the cost of a private jet trip to Connecticut, a Maserati limousine ride, as well as several elegant dinners in 2018.

The commission ruled unanimously that Hickenlooper violated Colorado’s gift ban in June 2018 when he attended secretive Bilderberg meetings in Italy. Hickenlooper paid a fee of $1,500, believing that covered the cost of the hotel, limousine, meals, and other expenses. The event’s sponsor, Fiat-Chrysler, said the $1,500 fee did not cover the limousine rides.

The IEC ruled 4-1 that the former governor violated Amendment 41 by accepting a flight and expensive dinners from MDC Holdings in March 2018.

National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez ripped Hickenlooper in a statement, saying: “[Hickenlooper] is guilty of shrugging off the state’s ethics rules and violating the trust taxpayers had placed in him as Governor.

“Now he has to defend taxpayers footing the bill for his $525-an-hour lawyer out of a post-9/11 economic recovery fund.”
