There's even an ominous link to the Clinton administration. Whack!
For full details of the behavior that led to Buck leaving the U.S. Attorney's Office a decade ago, the ad sends you to the Denver Post, where you'll find this story detailing how Buck was rebuked for "bad-mouthing a felony case to defense lawyers representing Aurora gun dealers."
As the Post piece reveals, the case had major flaws -- and none of the senior attorneys on the staff wanted to prosecute it. Still, Buck was the one who talked to the other side, earning a rebuke and an ethics class assignment. And ultimately, he left the U.S. Attorney's Office, returning to public life a few years later for a run in Weld County.
But in this election season, when mavericks are looking mainstream and going rogue looks like a winning direction, Buck's move may wind up winning points -- particularly among Second Amendment-loving Republicans -- and coming back to slap Norton.
