If not for the one year statute of limitations, Governor     Hickenlooper would have been found guilty of violating      ethics laws dozens of times for his travel on corporate     jets. In the Independent Ethics Commission’s ruling, they    made it clear if the plane was owned by a Corporation like      MDC Holdings, Hickenlooper should not have taken free       flights: “MDC Holdings is not a closely held corporation        where a personal friend of the governor essentially                   owned the private plane. Accordingly… the                         ‘special occasion’ exception does not apply,                            because MDC Holdings is not a relative or                                           personal friend’ of the governor.”

  Governor Hickenlooper took rides on dozens                                   of corporate jets, including flights on a                           corporate jet to Davos, Switzerland and the                                     One Shot Antelope Hunt in Wyoming

      According to an investigation by CBS4 Denver and                   the Colorado Sun: “Former Colorado Gov. John                        Hickenlooper accepted millions of dollars from corporations and nonprofits to fund initiatives and positions in his office — an arrangement that came with                     limited oversight and public disclosure despite the                             potential conflicts of interest.

The Denver Post reported that the “Money for Hickenlooper’s        attorney is from a federal fund meant to help Colorado        economy post-9/11.” And even the   liberal Denver Post                   Editorial Board called Hickenlooper’s budget trick                                                                               “disappointing.”

                Hickenlooper has not apologized and has shown                       contempt for Coloradans throughout this process.                      Hickenlooper even told a 9News reporter, “You guys                                                       should be protecting me on this.”
