Description

Simon uncovers bribes, corruption and other problems in El Paso County, specifically in relation to the operations of the county coliseum. Simon's investigation found that a coliseum concessionaire's close relationship to an El Paso county commissioner benefited both sides. While the commissioner received campaign contributions, the concessionaire was able to steal money, as the coliseum's revenue began to drop.
