McInnis says he paid taxes on entire ill-gotten $300,000

One-time Republican frontrunner for governor Scott McInnis told the Colorado Independent he paid taxes on the entire $300,000 he was paid by Hasan Family Foundation to produce a handful of articles that, as has been widely reported, McInnis didn't write but mostly lifted from papers written years ago by Gregory Hobbs, now a Colorado Supreme Court Justice. But the money wasn't all paid directly to McInnis. According to Foundation tax returns, McInnis received the $300,000 in three installments, including one in 2006 for $112,500, which went to Invest 2 LLC, a now defunct limited liability corporation that listed McInnis’s wife Lori as its registered agent.

McInnis paid $300,000 by Hasan family for odd water research project

Over the weekend, the Hasan Family Foundation posted a series of articles on its website called “Musings on Water” authored by GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis. These are some of the articles the six-term congressman authored for a hefty $300,000 from the prominent Colorado conservative donor Hasan family for work to be completed in 2005 and 2006. It's a gig that would make even the few non-struggling writers in the state green with envy.
