Media critic says Tipton, Perlmutter are on solid ground ethically
Media critic Jason Salzman this week calls out The Denver Post for casting aspersions on Congressmen Ed Perlmutter and Scott Tipton for having investments in businesses or industries that might be affected by committees the two congressmen sit on.
In his column, Salzman writes that The Post gives too much play to a comment from an ethics watchdog while not giving equal play to comments that neither Tipton nor Perlmutter had actually done anything wrong.
“Jason Salzman got it right — Congressman Perlmutter acted ethically according to House Ethics Rules,” said Leslie Oliver, spokesperson for Perlmutter.
