A watchdog group filed a complaint with the state’s Independent Ethics Committee against Secretary of State Mike Coffman on Wednesday.
The complaint is the first one filed with the committee since voters created it in 2006, said Colorado Ethics Watch director Chantell Taylor. It is also the latest complaint Ethics Watch, generally seen as left-leaning, has lodged with various agencies about Coffman, a Republican. [emphasis added]
“Generally seen as left-leaning”? It’s more apparent than just “generally seen,” as this well qualifies as a partisan, politically-motivated attack. The only thing that’s changed is the name of Taylor’s group – from Colorado Citizens for Ethics in Government to Colorado Ethics Watch. But the same “left-leaning” agenda is there.
But credit to the Post for at least acknowledging a basic observation it overlooked not too long ago, when it used to treat long-time Democratic activist Chantell Taylor as an unbiased, nonpartisan watchdog. Perhaps non-MSM reporting like this and this has begun to sink in.
Taylor’s allegations against Coffman lose a lot of luster when you come to this realization. Let the facts guide our judgments in this case, but let’s not give Taylor and Colorado Ethics Watch any undue credence.
