NEW NRSC AD: Hickenlooper’s Pay-to-Play on Steroids

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is out with a new ad today in Colorado targeting John Hickenlooper’s pay-to-play on steroids. A recent CBS DenverColorado Sun investigation found then-Governor Hickenlooper’s office accepted millions of dollars in private donations with almost no oversight or disclosure, and that some donors said they were paying for policy positions.

“John Hickenlooper’s scheme of taking private donations for policy positions with almost no oversight is pay-to-play on steroids, and yet another reason why he is the most corrupt Governor in Colorado history,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “From running this pay-to-play scheme, to accepting corporate-paid travel in violation of state laws, to ignoring a subpoena and being found in contempt, Hickenlooper has consistently shown Colorado voters he thinks the rules don’t apply to him.”

Despite Hickenlooper’s penchant for secrecy when it comes to how he conducted business as governor, investigations continue to reveal the significant influence corporate interests had with the millionaire former governor. Until he fully discloses all travel-related schedules from his time as governor, voters will remain in the dark on the other corporate gifts he accepted during his first seven years in office.
