Colorado Ethics Watch calls for State Sen. King to resign

DENVER — Colorado Ethics Watch called on State Sen. Steve King, R-Mesa County, to resign Thursday after he was indicted on three felony and two misdemeanor charges related to alleged theft of public funds and falsifying records.

King, a Republican who represents District 7 in Mesa and Garfield counties, was elected to the Senate in 2010 after previously serving in the Colorado House. Earlier this month, he dropped out of the race for Mesa County Sheriff after The Associated Press reported of allegations about King’s part-time work at the Sheriff’s Office.
