Steamboat Springs talk radio hosts Cari Hermacinski and Rob Douglas
were clearly unsatisfied with answers Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton provided on their show this morning in response to questions about potential ethics violations
committed when Tipton's daughter used his name to solicit business on Capitol Hill as part of her "government relations" job with tele-townhall firm Broadnet. The hosts probed and Tipton parried. Afterward, Hermacinski and Douglas lamented that the congressman seemed intent to fudge on the issue. They said his reaction to the story was evasive, that he gave the kind of parsing non-answers Americans have grown accustomed to hearing
from politicians in trouble.
