The Rundown - Thurs 3/1: So much harassment in CO politics, or is it?

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has apologized for sending inappropriate emails to a former member of his security detail such asking if she'd ever considered taking a pole-dancing class. In my opinion, this is VERY mild stuff and there is at this point no evidence that the mayor took any actions to try to initiate or ask for physical contact. 

The really interesting part of the story is the question of whether another man who was accused by the same detective of sexual harassment was paid a $200,000+ settlement because (A) he was wrongly fired or (B) too keep the information about the mayor's texts from getting out to the public.

Raising the scumminess level, State Rep Steve Lebsock is facing an expulsion vote tomorrow after accusations of sexual harassment. There's a lot of foul language in the official investigative documents. This Denver Post article is tamer but makes the point:
