Steve King is a Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives, representing the 54th District since 2007.

King is Vice President of American National Protective Services.[1]

Ethics complaint

On February 3, 2010 King appeared before a legislative ethics panel to answer a complaint brought by Colorado Ethics Watch to determine if he charged both the state and his campaign fund for travel expenses. Records show that for a week in April and for all of March the state paid King $1,935 for rental car expenses. During the same time, King charged his campaign over $1,000 for gas and rental car expenses.

Fellow legislator Mark Waller called it "a payday loan from the campaign account," stating, "He’s a rural legislator who makes $30,000 a year. He had car problems, and doesn’t have money to rent a car. He says, ‘Let me borrow from the campaign account.’" The ethics panel will reach a decision by February 18.[2]

Issue positions

King did not provide answers to the Colorado State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test provides voters with how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected.[3]
