Anthony Hartsook, retired Lt. Colonel with the Army, discusses the current controversy regarding George Teal, candidate for Douglas County Commissioner. As someone who has served his country for 26 years in the army, Anthony is extremely disturbed that George claims to have served in a combat zone and falsified his credentials to be in the VFW. The VFW has recently rescinded George’s membership. Anthony asks, If you are going to lie about your service to your country, what else will you lie about?
Suzanne Staiert, candidate for SD 27, suzannestaiert.com, joins Kim to discuss her candidacy, the recent ethics trial for former Gov. Hickenlooper and ballot initiative Due Date Too Late. Hickenlooper, using 9/11 Recovery Funds, defended himself against charges relative to Amendment 41, the Gift Ban. Hickenlooper ignored a subpoena, eventually appeared before the ethics hearing, was found guilty, and will soon be sentenced. Gov. Polis changed signature requirements for ballot initiatives, which specifically negatively affected Due Date Too Late. Regardless, Due Date Too Late surpassed the required number of signatures and will be on the November, 2020, ballot.
