Where’s the Colorado media on Sen. Morse’s reimbursements?

Stephanie Cegielski from the Colorado Government Accountability Project, came on my AM-560 radio show Friday evening to discuss her latest findings about reimbursements received by state Sen. John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, for expenses, mileage and 331 days of per diem in 2009, the year he was appointed Majority Leader.

“This is nearly 100 days more than then-Speaker of the House Terrance Carroll requested,” CGAP reported. All Colorado legislators also receive a $30,000 salary.

In 2006, then-Republican House Minority Leader Joe Stengel was in the glare of media scrutiny over his reimbursements, faced an ethics probe, and stepped down from his leadership post.

Cegielski and I discussed Morse’s $40,000 in tax-free reimbursements from the state in 2009, and the lack of interest by Colorado’s mainstream media.

“It’s ripping off taxpayers,” said Cegielski.

Listen for the crickets…
