Ethics Watch releases top five ‘ethical failures’ of 2011
Ethics Watch, a nonprofit group that calls out illegal maneuvers in Colorado elections, just released its 4th Annual Ethics Roundup.
Included are Colorado's top five "ethics failures" over the last year. Colorado Springs, perhaps unsurprisingly, made the cut. In fact, given the long list of goof-ups made by the city clerk and city attorney in 2011, Ethics Watch was unable to choose just one to highlight.
But the story of Douglas Bruce's Reform Team, which dodged reporting requirements during the City Council elections, stood out. Ethics Watch specifically pointed to an aspect of that scandal as the pinnacle of the Springs' election woes.
