Tipton apologizes for daughter’s e-mails

DENVER — Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton has written a letter of apology to House ethics officers for e-mails his daughter sent trying to drum up business for her employer.

Tipton’s 22-year-old daughter Elizabeth works for Broadnet Inc., a telephone conference provider that serves members of Congress. Elizabeth Tipton sent e-mails to some lawmakers that mentioned her father.

Tipton said in his letter Thursday to Ethics Committee leaders that the use of his name was “improper” and said it wouldn’t happen again.

Tipton spokesman Josh Green says that Tipton is awaiting a response from the Ethics Committee but believes that the apology letter settles the matter.

Tipton is a freshman Republican whose district includes most of southern and western Colorado.
