The Toxic Substance of Colorado's Governor -- An Opinion Article

I know how Nike felt, watching someone assume a level of notoriety and social power in the Tour de France, only to discover their dependence on artificial, detrimental, and publicly embarrassing substances. But unlike Nike, I have no ads to pull, no sponsorships to remove and no prime time tribunal like Oprah Winfrey to run the paces of John Hickenlooper through. The best I can say is that like a prom gone bad, I, like many Coloradans, may have kissed the wrong candidate.

I, along with countless Coloradans, thought we were electing a "people's candidate", at least a Democrat, and champion for all the things we know and love about Colorado.  But instead, we seemingly elected not a governor or even a person to the governor's mansion as much as a 'manifestation' of the public "regulatory" agency called the "Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission".   God, forgive me for my having campaigned for a governor who now threatens to sue the people of Colorado for their democratic opposition to fracking -- and please empower some judiciary to bring to light the sham of an agency, COGCC, whose sole existence is self preservation and profit.  

(Below is an article from Denver's CBS 4 - read it and remember not to check any candidate's box whose loyalties lie with an industry against the health and well-being of the good People of Colorado).
