The F.O.P. slammed the mayor for the recent scandal involving inappropriate texts he sent to a police detective several years ago.

Hancock sent the suggestive messages when Denver Police Detective Leslie Branch-Wise was part of his security team in 2012.

Hancock has sent a handwritten apology to a former member of his security detail who he acknowledged sending “inappropriate” texts to six years ago.

Branch-Wise was on Hancock’s security team early in his first mayoral term.
