McInnis promises to repay money

DENVER — Colorado Gubernatorial Candidate Scott McInnis says he will fully repay the $300,000 he received for plagiarized essays about water rights, and he says it should bring the issue to a close.

The republican said today that he has already acknowledged responsibility for his mistake and he wants to move on.

The offer for repayment came after the Hasan Family Foundation Board said it wants its money back, noting that McInnis has admitted some of the work wasn’t his own.

The board also said McInnis didn’t do the work he was obligated to do as a senior fellow of the foundation.

McInnis has rejected demands that he withdraw his candidacy. The 
six-term former congressman faces Dan Maes in the primary election
