Law Week Colorado (James Carlson) - The office of Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey has opened a criminal investigation into alleged misuse of state funds by Secretary of State Scott Gessler.

News of the investigation comes as the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission on Monday said it was moving forward with its own investigation into Gessler, a Republication.

Both actions are in response to complaints filed in October by the liberal-leaning Colorado Ethics Watch.
