After the sheriff debacle, gun control screw-up, and countless other scandals, how can Hick survive?
DENVER - The average Joe wouldn't be surprised to learn that major supporters of politicians influence their decisions, but rarely does a politician just come right out and say so.
That's what Gov. John Hickenlooper appears to do in a clip of video, obtained by Colorado-based conservative group Revealing Politics, though the Hickenlooper campaign disputes that interpretation.
In a newly-released video clip from the same Aspen event in which the governor apologized to a group of sheriffs for new gun-control policies, the governor was asked to explain why his office opposed an effort to raise pay for public officials in this year's legislative session.
