Yesterday I posted about alleged collusion and corruption in El Paso County as it relates to the 2013 murder of Tom Clements, chief of Colorado’s prison system. In the piece, ‘Murder, Cover-up, and Corruption? El Paso County’s Swamp is Very Dark,’ I outlined a serious concern that District Attorney Dan May and Sheriff Bill Elder may have colluded to avoid pursuing co-conspirators in the assassination.

The reason for giving the prison gang a pass on prosecution is because May was allegedly the intended target of a murder-for-hire plot that went wrong. By not seeking justice for those who tried to kill him, May would avoid being killed, if the allegations are true.

Yesterday I went on the radio to talk about the Clements murder as well as my run for Sheriff of El Paso County and what I saw and continue to see in corruption in the sheriff’s office. I was on with Chuck Bonniwell and Julie Hayden on Denver AM station 710 KNUS. Before posting my audio, I do have one correction to make to something I mentioned tangentially:

Correction: Former EPSO Sheriff Terry Maketa did end his final term in office early, but he did so by retirement and not by resignation. Also, the recall effort that was launched against him apparently would not have been successful because an insufficient number of valid signatures had been collected.

The day before my appearance on the radio program, former U.S. Congressman Tom Tancredo was on with Chuck and Julie, discussing many of the same issues. He paved the way for me and expressed his concerns that we must seek outside legal authority to investigate and potentially prosecute anyone involved in such an alleged cover-up.

In full disclosure, Mr. Tancredo endorsed me for sheriff in my primary run and he and I share many of the same views on government, particularly as it relates to law enforcement.

I’ll continue to hammer away at corruption in El Paso County, regardless of where it may reside. We’re not done with the Clements murder, and I am sure there will be more to come.
