State Rep. Steve King asked the state to reimburse him for mileage, gas and a meal at a pancake house last year, even though records suggest his campaign account already was footing the bill for those expenses, The Denver Post reports. King, R-Grand Junction, faces a statehouse ethics panel today and an allegation by a political-watchdog group that he has double-dipped. King, a police investigator, declined to explain the transactions until after the ethics committee delivers its findings.
The House Ethics Committee will meet at 8 a.m. in Room 0111. Listen to a live feed of the hearing when it happens here.
