As they say in bad movies, “He’s baack.”

Cheap Seats suspected that Jared Polis wouldn’t slink away when he dropped a lawsuit against a drilling company working on land adjacent to his weekend getaway.  And Cheap Seats, as usual, was right.

Polis amended his original lawsuit to allege that the drilling company working on land that Polis doesn’t own drilled somewhere other than where it said it planned to.

Polis apparently is unaware that it’s important for drilling companies to understand the relationship between where drill rigs should be sited and the natural gas they wish to tap.

Simply put, if you don’t know where you are drilling from, you’re unlikely to hit the target.

Cheap Seats understands that’s not the way they do it in Boulder, to say nothing of Congress, but it’s a hard reality in the real world.

Best of all, it seems that the drilling company, Sundance Energy, is almost done.

Sundance CEO Eric McCrady called Polis’ plans “groundless.”

Cheap Seats thinks that seems unnecessarily charitable.

More like business as usual for Polis: Lots of bluster, little accomplishment.

    If there is a politician that needs a Bum’s Rush out of the State Government…. Like Morse and Giron…Mr Polis is right up there. Lets go out of the way … and make life and business tough for the state of Colorado. Another charlatan, and of course a NIMBY…but some of my portfolio helps my position.

    Double speak at its finest …and yes Jared you’re such a helpful for the Community and the children type of guy… hey that 27% tax increase your brethren are asking for…how much you paying? Your so sheltered…but the rest of the great unwashed can make up for it… Thanks Jared mercy on your worthless servants

    LOL Colorado Government is a double speak double standard joke… WAKE UP !!!
