I've listened to Ritter's whining and moaning about the state budget shortfall..... and now this.
Ritter's got to go, we pay 200K for this dude's 'photography' bill which is absolutely nothing more than his early re-election campaign.

Ritter has no ethics, morals or concern for the people of the State of Colorado. Like many politicians... his main concern is HIMSELF !!
