No charges for candidate who gave voters stamps

DENVER (AP) – Prosecutors say there is no evidence of wrongdoing by a Denver City Council candidate who left postage stamps on the doors of potential voters so they could send their ballots in the all-mail elections.

The 18th Judicial District Attorney’s office in Centennial said Thursday prosecutors would not file charges against candidate John Haney. Prosecutors in Centennial investigated the matter because Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said he has a conflict of interest because he supports Haney’s opponent, state Sen. Paula Sandoval.

Haney says lawyers advised him he would not violate campaign laws if he provided the 61-cent stamps along with his campaign literature.
