Willie Shepherd, a Democratic political insider whose departure in 2009 from the law firm he co-founded raised a stir in local legal circles, received a public censure today for misrepresentations he made while at that firm, The Denver Post reports. He did not contest it. The censure states that Shepherd misrepresented to a potential client, E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, the diversity at the firm where he worked, then Kamlet Shepherd & Reichert. Shepherd said in a Dec. 6, 2007, e-mail that his firm had a collective women and minority equity ownership interest of 48.5 percent; in fact it was 30.1 percent.
