Polis, the darling of Boulder who maintains a pied a terre in Weld County, seems not to know his private vacation getaway all too well.
Either that or he has a stronger fondness of convenience than truth. Odds lean to the former.
Polis said in a self-directed crockumentary attacking hydraulic fracturing that drilling on an adjoining property was oh-so close to the guesthouse on his Weld County property, threatening his calm and peace.
Funny thing though, Weld County officials have no record of his “guesthouse.”
However they are aware of a shed that looks suspiciously like the “guesthouse” depicted in Polis’ crockumentary.
Now maybe Polis likes to stick his guests in a shed. Or maybe it’s not really a shed and the rustic exterior is meant to mislead, and multimillionaire Jared Polis is trying to hold down his tax bill.
Polis has never met a tax he didn’t want to levy, but it seems that when it comes time to pay them, he’s never seen a tax he wouldn’t dodge.
Then there’s that credibility issue.
So, congressman, were you lying in the crockumentary when you said the shed was a “guesthouse?” Or, were you lying when you told the county assessor that your guesthouse was a shed?
Here’s a hint, congressman. The right answer to those questions does not involve the phrase, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…”
