Lawmakers husband suffers heart attack

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The husband of a Colorado lawmaker who was cleared last week of ethics charges has suffered a heart attack.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Rep. Laura Bradford says she will be absent from the legislature until her husband, Linton Mathews, is well enough to leave a hospital.

A legislative ethics committee unanimously dismissed a complaint Friday against Bradford, saying there is no evidence she used her position to influence Denver police during a traffic stop.

Bradford was stopped Jan. 25 when police suspected her of driving drunk. She was not cited for driving under the influence.
