Campaign for a Strong Colorado, a coalition of progressive political groups in the state, is calling on U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck to release a document drafted by an attorney for his campaign defending him against a campaign finance complaint. The complaint (pdf), written by Charles Grice, has been public since it was filed with the Federal Election Commission in May. It has been the subject of discussion in the political blogosphere, on talk radio shows and in the mainstream press, but Buck has played down the charges leveled by Grice and Buck’s campaign denied requests by the Colorado Independent this month to make its defense public.

Charles Rick Grice last week sent a letter to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) seeking to withdraw a headline-grabbing campaign finance complaint he filed this summer against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck. Not so fast, says political campaign and government watchdog group Colorado Ethics Watch. The group sent its own letter to the FEC Wednesday (pdf) calling on the FEC to disregard Grice’s request and to continue its investigation into the complaint.
