Watchdog group files complaint against Sec. of State Gessler

DENVER (AP) - A spokesman for Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler is dismissing a call for an investigation of a complaint that Gessler misused state funds to return from the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

Andrew Cole tells the Denver Post the allegations by Ethics Watch are a partisan attack and are unfounded.

Colorado Ethics Watch said Monday it filed a complaint with the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission, asking the commission to investigate allegations that Gessler misappropriated public funds when he attended a Republican election law training event and the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

The group also wants a criminal investigation.

Gessler says death threats were made against his family in August, prompting his early return from the Republican convention.
