Rep. McKinley Says Lobbyist Was Threatening; He Denies It

Rep. Wes McKinley, D-Walsh has filed a legislative complaint against lobbyist Nate Gorman over an alleged exchange Tuesday involving the controversy over Trinidad State Nursing Home, The Pueblo Chieftain reports.

“Nate came up and said he was going to cut my lying tongue out and stuff it down my lying throat,” McKinley said.

Gorman said Thursday he hadn’t seen the formal complaint and denied threatening McKinley. “It’s a shame (McKinley) is filing a personal complaint about me to influence the outcome of this particular issue in the Legislature,” Gorman said.
