Degagne-Rule contribution to Wasley is illegal

Editor:

This is an open letter to Pat S. Degagne-Rule and Russell Wasley.

For good reason, Colorado Constitution, Article XXVIII, Section 3, Number 6 forbids one candidate from receiving contributions from or giving contributions to another candidate or their committee.

However, per public record (https://tracer.sos.colorado.gov) on May 11, 2012, “Patricia S. Degagne” of Cortez, Colo., contributed $50 to the “Committee to Re-Elect Russell Wasley for District Attorney.” While this amount is nominal, it is illegal.

It seems that both Wasley and Degagne-Rule have broken campaign finance law and violated the Colorado Constitution. Perhaps they’d like to explain why they are deserving of our vote.
