Denver Auditor Dennis Gallagher is refusing to sign a $3 million city contract with a new nonprofit, citing "the appearance of a conflict" by its executive director, Peter Chapman, who recently left the mayor's administration.
The ethics board concluded that Chapman's applying for the job would violate the ethics code.
However, the board granted him a waiver because it would "serve the best interests of the city."
The best interest of the city? Yeah right, the best interest of this corrupt bureaucrat.
