Greg Kolomitz, once upon a time the campaign manager for Gov. Bill Ritter, is now embroiled in a bitter legal showdown with his former boss over campaign violations totaling $300,000 (or more). Interestingly, Kolomitz’s laptop computer (containing relevant, important records) disappeared under mysterious circumstances just as the story went public.
Now the Denver Post reports that Greg Kolomitz now is raising money to defend himself legally against alleged “false accusations,” apparently made by Bill Ritter:
The e-mail plea never mentions Ritter by name, but leaves no doubt about who the family thinks is responsible for the “false” accusations that led to an ongoing investigation of Kolomitz.
“We have found ourselves in a legal battle with someone whom we believed to be our friend. Someone who Greg (and I to a lesser extent) gave our lives to â€” in a political battle â€” to elect as governor of our wonderful state, Colorado,” wrote Carla Lucero Kolomitz, in an e-mail circulated to the couple’s friends.
This certainly isn’t a first (Just ask Cory Voorhis): Candidate and Governor Bill Ritter has been leaving a trail of legal defense fund victims in his wake.
