On Tuesday, former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler filed a campaign finance complaint on behalf of Denver County GOP official Kris Cook, alleging that Democrat gubernatorial nominee Jared Polis failed to disclose an investment in a healthcare company.
That alone might be headline-worthy, but what is alleged following Polis’ unreported investment certainly is. The complaint suggests that Polis not only failed to disclose his $5 to $25 million investment in BridgeHealth Medical, Inc., but that he did so with the expectation of reaping significant profits following passage of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), a law that he voted for and championed.
Imagine if succeeding in finance was this simple:
1) Invest in company;
2) Change the laws of the United States of America in order to catalyze successful investment;
3) Creepily play live-action video games against teenagers;
If Gessler’s allegations prove correct, Polis will have broken a lot more than Colorado campaign finance law.
The office of Secretary of State Wayne Williams has ten days to review the complaint. Stay tuned, PeakNation™. This could get juicy.
