A nonprofit watchdog group says Colorado's top ethics panel should set an example for government transparency rather than "challenging all legal boundaries" by "conducting official business in secret." Colorado Ethics Watch decried how the state Independent Ethics Commission "stealthily conducts business" in a response to Wednesday's Colorado Independent story detailing legal questions about the panel's penchant for meeting behind closed doors.
The Colorado Independent on Tuesday asked the state's top ethics panel to turn over recordings of more than a dozen secret meetings held this year — including closed sessions where a member of the panel reported deliberating on an ethics complaint filed against former Secretary of State Mike Coffman, who won election to Congress last fall — charging the panel with violating the state's Open Meetings Law.
An ethics watchdog group on Tuesday slammed the long-awaited decision by a state ethics panel that cleared U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman of wrongdoing when he served as Colorado secretary of state, saying the Independent Ethics Commission shirked its duty to investigate allegations of official misconduct and tied the hands of the group that brought the charges.
