Weekend Update

In case you missed it…

The story about Rep. Joe Stengel’s excessive billing for time worked continues to get worse. As the Rocky Mountain News reported, Stengel was billing for work time even when he was on vacation in Hawaii.

The Denver Post looked at a report from The National Journal analyzing voting records of Colorado’s congressional delegation. Sen. Wayne Allard was dubbed one of the most conservative members of the Senate and Sen. Ken Salazar was called a “centrist.” Rep. Marilyn Musgrave was also called one of the most conservative members in Congress.

The Denver Post also took a look at the Republican strategy for winning back control of the state legislature in 2006 and why they failed in 2004.

  1. GOP to Paccione: No way

    By Lynn Bartels, Rocky Mountain News
    February 24, 2006

    Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave?s campaign today accused her opponent, Rep. Angie Paccione, of being “disingenuous” for saying she had no idea her campaign offered to introduce top fund-raisers on the floor of the state House as a reward for their efforts.

    Guy Short, who is Musgrave?s chief of staff but said he was speaking as a campaign volunteer, said a brochure announcing the reward was e-mailed Thursday from Paccione?s campaign to all of her supporters.

    He said the e-mail disputes Paccione?s version of events, that it was an internal brochure meant only for staffer?s eyes and that she didn?t know anything about it.

    “She?s being disingenuous,” Short said Friday. “She?s selling access to the House floor and that?s outrageous.”

    Paccione, a Fort Collins Democrat, is challenging Musgrave, a two-term Republican from Fort Morgan, in the 4th Congressional District.

    Paccione was on the House floor this morning and unavailable for comment.

    Short said a number of Musgrave supporters have signed up to get e-mails from Paccione?s campaign, “just as I?m sure a number of her supporters have signed up to get information from our campaign.”

    He said the supporters got the e-mails on Thursday and noticed that the campaign was offering second-place fund-raising teams a tour of the Capitol and introductions on the House floor.

    Republicans were indignant Thursday when they saw a copy.

    “It?s a privilege to be introduced on the floor of the House,” said House Minority Leader Joe Stengel, R-Littleton. “It shouldn?t be for sale.”

    House members often spend at least the first half-hour of each day introducing guests, ranging from constituents to civic leaders to students.

    Paccione said Thursday the reward idea was the work of an “overzealous, young” staffer.

    Paccione said she had no knowledge of the proposal until being informed of it by the Rocky Mountain News. She said she then contacted her campaign and learned of the reward.

    “I said, ?Oh, my God,?” Paccione said.

    “Here?s why I died when I saw that. I pride myself on making this place the people?s house. The notion that I would ever use it as an incentive to help my campaign, I would never do that.”

    Paccione said the proposed fundraising brochure was an internal document that wasn?t supposed to be made public, but an e-mail of it landed in Republican hands.

    Said Short: “I find it very hard to believe that her campaign sent out a mass e-mail and she didn?t know about it.”
