As 15,700 Coloradans Miss Their First Paycheck, Gardner Attends *Another* High-Dollar Fundraiser

Days after 15,700 Coloradans employed by the federal government missed their first shutdown paycheck, U.S. Senator Cory Gardner was at another high-dollar fundraiser for his reelection campaign.

Last week, he was hosted by lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s PAC. This week, it was Covington & Burling LLP who brought in their deep-pocketed buddies to give Gardner a hand.

“Gardner may be paying lip service to furloughed workers, but his incessant fundraising sends a different message,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “Forget taking a paycheck while Coloradans suffer — Gardner is raking in money from K Street, too. Seriously, Senator?”
