Wiretap: Gazette blasts away at honey badger Gessler

He's scandal plagued. He doesn't show up for debates. He ridicules the other candidates. Enough of the honey badger! said the Gazette.

Fifth District race getting weird as it goes down to the...

The race for the Republican nomination for the Fifth District congressional seat, centered in Colorado Springs, grows weirder by the day. You've got three-term incumbent Doug Lamborn waging a war of words not only with the district's biggest and most important newspaper, The Gazette, but also with his predecessor in Congress, Joel Hefley.

Anti-earmark Tea Party caucus member Lamborn used to be earmark crazy

Colorado Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn has come out strong this year against earmarks. He joined the Tea Party caucus dedicated to fighting government waste and he enthusiastically signed onto the GOP House pledge against earmarking, or the practice of tacking on projects to legislation in order to deliver tax money to favored constituencies and causes. Lamborn wrote an editorial for his hometown Colorado Springs Gazette against earmarks last Saturday, a feel good Thanksgiving treat for the Gazette's conservative readers. He left out the fact that he has been earmark crazy since he arrived in Washington in 2007.

McInnis's campaign hasn't commented on the articles or released them and McInnis has said precious little to reporters about his stand on vital water issues in Colorado. But the issue isn't going away, particularly, perhaps, among Colorado Springs Republicans.

Udall grills Army Sec. nominee on Fort Carson killings, Piñon Canyon

The nominee to become secretary of the Army promised Colorado Sen. Mark Udall on Thursday he would read a two-part series published this week by the Colorado Springs Gazette examining a string of killings committed by soldiers from a Fort Carson unit. U.S. Rep. John McHugh, a New York Republican, said he had only learned about the articles yesterday, so he didn't directly address questions raised by senators about the Gazette's disturbing revelations during his confirmation hearings before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
