Marianne Goodland (Colorado Politics) – In just over two weeks, the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission will hold a formal hearing to determine whether Sen. Vicki Marble violated the state’s ethics law concerning gifts to lawmakers.
The Commission worked through pre-trial motions Thursday in preparation for the Jan. 8 meeting, which could feature testimony by Marble, an Extraction Oil & Gas employee and Marble’s legislative aide. The five-member group could rule on the complaint following the hearing.
Last June the ethics body decided to investigate a complaint filed against the Fort Collins Republican by Sarah Hall Mann of Broomfield. The complaint deals with a Feb. 15 town hall hosted by Marble at a Broomfield restaurant. The event was paid for by Brian Cain, a media relations spokesperson for Extraction Oil & Gas.
