Colorado Ethics Commission to Investigate Complaint Against Hickenlooper

The ethics complaint against Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO), which has spoiled the final few months of his two terms as governor and the first few months of his 2020 presidential exploration, will move forward as a “non-frivolous” complaint, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission ruled Tuesday.

The complaint, originally reported by The Denver Post, alleges Hickenlooper has taken up to “100 questionable flights” since September 2011 that he has not disclosed as potential gifts.

It’s just the second complaint of 22 this year that the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission has ruled “non-frivolous.” The vote was unanimous. Sixteen other complaints have been dismissed a “frivolous,” and four are still pending.

The investigation could take months to complete, and may spoil Hickenlooper’s plans to start aggressively running for president in 2019.
