Suthers pursues contempt ruling for Douglas Bruce

DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers is pursuing an order of contempt of court against anti-tax advocate Douglas Bruce.

Suthers filed a motion in Denver District Court today. It says that the state has tried to serve Bruce 30 times to compel him to testify in a case involving three state tax-cutting measures being proposed for the November ballot.

At issue is whether supporters of the initiatives disclosed contributions and expenditures to comply with campaign finance laws.

Bruce, the author of the Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights, has denied involvement with the initiatives.

If the proof-of-service motion is approved, Suthers plans to ask for a contempt-of-court ruling next week.

Bruce didn’t immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
