DENVER (AP) – A political watchdog group has filed an ethics complaint against Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler.
Colorado Ethics Watch said Monday it filed a complaint with the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission, asking the commission to investigate allegations that Gessler misappropriated public funds when he attended a Republican election law training event and the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
The group also wants a criminal investigation.
Gessler says death threats were made against his family in August, prompting his early return from the Republican convention.
