Statesman coverage of GOP dinner was well-done

Dear Editor,

I just finished Leslie Jorgensen’s wonderfully accurate piece on the GOP Lincoln Day Dinner benefiting Arapahoe and Denver Republican organizations. I am a Republican precinct leader in Arapahoe County and was in the audience.

I just wanted to thank her for her candor and courage in presenting the remarks by Dave Kerber regarding the Denver Post so accurately and succinctly. I completely agree with Mr. Kerber that there surely must be some semblance of professional journalists at the Post that are indeed hanging their heads in the shame of this orchestrated, obviously partisan, blatant attempt to influence the primary election. I am not trying to excuse or make light of the accusations about Mr. (Scott) McInnis, but two wrongs certainly do not make a right.

Leslie’s presentation of the highlights of this evening’s activities was in the finest tradition of “we report and you decide” journalism and again, I thank her.
