Video: Hancock denies involvement with prostitutes

Fox 31 and 7 News both reported Thursday that Denver Mayor-elect Michael Hancock has denied allegations that he was a client of a high-end Denver prostitution service.

Rumors began circulating days before the election that Hancock’s name and phone number were included in the customer records of the Denver Players prostitution business, once operating at 1675 Fillmore Street.

Fox 31 reported that Hancock’s lawyer has requested any proof that Denver Police might have that would implicate him as a customer of prostitutes and that so far, the only evidence has been the records themselves, which were provided to some members of the media last week, and which Hancock insists are false.
