CO State Senator pushes bill to give FEDs arrest state powers. Also runs for CO County Sheriff.Submitted by Gmartine on Wed, 07/30/2014 - 23:18
Ends up getting charged with 3 felonies and 2 misdemeanors while running to be a local CO county sheriff and as a sitting state senator.
"King was handed a summons in Grand Junction on Wednesday listing felonies of embezzlement of public property, forgery and theft and misdemeanors for second-degree forgery and official misconduct. The charges carry potential prison or jail sentences if he is found guilty.
King also could lose his law enforcement certification and be banned from seeking public office if he is convicted."
This guy co-sponsored a bill to give secret service agents local police powers and was a gateway bill to give FEDs even more power than they assert now. His biggest crime... pushing legislation to make it legal for a police officer to forcibly draw blood from you to test for thc.
The sheriff's race is now up in the air and a lot of mudslinging between the independent, write-in candidates and the committee appointed republican replacement is getting dirty.
