Polis cleared in fundraising complaint

Summit Daily/Mark Fox

DENVER ” Colorado Democratic Rep. Jared Polis has been cleared by federal election authorities in a fundraising complaint by one of his former opponents.

Polis was accused by primary opponent Will Shafroth of failing to disclose employers and occupations of his donors in last year’s campaign. The Federal Election Commission ruled Friday that Polis’ campaign met requirements to make the “best effort” to report donors’ employment details.

Polis defeated Shaforth in a three-way primary last year and went on to win the 2nd District seat.

In March, Shafroth was named the Interior Department’s deputy assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks. Shafroth was a founding director of the Great Outdoors Colorado Trust Fund.
