Colorado Springs Independent (Chet Hardin) - Spending of public money by Secretary of State Scott Gessler has attracted the scrutiny of two government agencies.

According to Colorado Ethics Watch, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission is investigating the alleged misuse of state funds by Gessler. The Ethics Watch complaint that sparked the investigation asks whether Gessler "misrepresented the nature of his visit" when he traveled to Florida in August for the Republican National Lawyers Association.
