Wiretap: RIP inspirational Colorado lawmaker Ken Gordon
Ken Gordon, former Senate majority leader, was the kind of politician who actually believed in the idea of doing good. He was a political junkie who tried to get the junk — and all the obscene money — out of politics. If only there were more like him. It is no surprise to see the bipartisan praise for his political life.
