Yesterday, Representative Jared Polis turned to Twitter to let his followers know about the latest episode of his CNN series Freshman Year, "featuring our new puppy Gia!" However, he didn't mention another addition to the family -- a swank condo at 1655 Walnut Street in Boulder, which turned up in a September 20 list of real estate transactions published by the Boulder Daily Camera.

These may be hard times for you and I, but JP seems to be navigating the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression (I know it's true, because I heard Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner say it again this morning) in impressive style.
