DPS Chief Attacks New York Times, Refuses to Answer Questions About Bennet's Wall Street Money

Posted: Updated:

On AM760 this morning, Denver school board member Jeannie Kaplan and Cherry Creek News publisher Guerin Green debated DPS chief Tom Boasberg over the blockbuster NYT story reporting on Sen. Bennet's time at DPS, and how he orchestrated a complex financial deal that rewarded his future Wall Street campaign contributors. It was a heated debate - listen to the podcast here. You'll note that Boasberg (quite unbelievably) tries to label Pulitzer Prize-winning Times reporter Gretchen Morgensen a Romanoff stooge, and Boasberg refuses to answer whether he thinks it is appropriate for Bennet to have taken big campaign contributions from the banks that are profiting off the DPS deal. Listen in here.

Then listen to Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff respond to the Times' piece here (it starts about halfway in).
