Government watchdog group Ethics Watch ranks top Colorado scandals of 2010

Nonprofit watchdog group Colorado Ethics Watch on Tuesday brought out a list reviewing five of the most glaring high-profile breaches of public trust in Colorado in 2010.

"We were trying to pick [instances] where there was no redeeming side. These were cases where there was no way to give a positive spin," Director Luis Toro told the Colorado Independent.
