Former Gov. John Hickenlooper, a U.S. Senate candidate, took a PR hit recently when it surfaced that the attorney representing him in a Colorado Independent Ethics Commission case was paid with money intended for a federal post- 9/11 recovery fund allotted years ago.

The pending ethics complaint, filed in 2018 by Republicans, claimed that Hickenlooper, a Democrat, accepted private flights that allegedly violate a prohibition against accepting gifts.

A Hickenlooper spokesperson said those filing the complaint, “put political attacks ahead of the facts,” The Denver Post reported. The next step is a formal hearing.
