Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter has notified prosecutors that more spending violations have been uncovered from his 2006 campaign, and that a former aide has written his campaign a check for $10,340 to correct the problem.
Sure, it’s not as much as the $200,000+ illegally spent out of Bill Ritter’s inaugural fund that got him into hot water in the first place. But every time another one of these campaign violations trickles out – or word spreads that a computer with key facts pertaining to the investigation conveniently disappeared – it further calls into question the governor’s leadership.
If Bill Ritter can’t provide oversight to his own campaign funds, how can he provide oversight to the state budget and taxpayers’ money?
