32 Reasons Why This "Ethics" Hearing is Illegal,
The attached document lists 32 reasons why this "ethics" hearing is illegal, biased, and unfair.
There are other reasons.
The "Independent Ethics Commission" (IEC) works out of the office of the city attorney., She filed the complaint "on behalf of the City of Colorado Springs." The city attorney then leaked her complaint to the Independent newspaper in violation of the confidentiality rule on ethics complaints. Her complaint that Collins cost the city money was found to be false, but the case continues anyway.
The IEC has refused for over three months to consider the 15 written ethics complaints (copied at this website) filed against the "Gang of Eight" council members and others for their numerous specific violations of law and ethics. So much for being "independent."
