Brighton City Council to investigate one of their own over encounter with police but won’t say who

The Denver Post: The Brighton City Council on Monday night appointed a special prosecutor to probe the conduct of one of its council members for potential ethical or municipal code violations but then refused to identify which elected official it is having investigated.

The vote to hire the law firm of Wilson Williams LLP to “determine whether a council member has violated any municipal laws or ethical standards such that prosecution is warranted” was 8-0. The only council member who did not attend Monday’s meeting or vote on the resolution was Kris Jordinelli, who was censured by his colleagues last year following a disjointed rant he gave during a virtual council meeting — words he attributed to being under the influence of alcohol and medication.

Attempts to reach Jordinelli Monday night at several listed phone numbers and via email were unsuccessful.
