That’s Allen Fuller, the communications director for Republican Colorado gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez, asking about the arrest of reporters. The reason? Former Denver Post reporter, former Channel 7 investigative executive producer and current Watchdog.org investigative reporter Art Kane says he was threatened with arrest for trying to procure Gov. John Hickenlooper’s tax returns, which have already been distributed to other media outlets.

Kane reports that the campaign spokesman for Hickenlooper threatened him with arrest and called police when Kane attempted to get the candidate’s tax returns, which were distributed to other Colorado media weeks ago.
Beauprez released his returns to Watchdog.org, which is planning to run a story on both candidate’s returns — or lack thereof — next week.
