We're going to announce our pick for Shmuck of the Year for 2010 on January 3, but before that, we'd like you to cast your vote for your favorite shmuck.
The candidates below also rate our annual Hall of Shame in the Year in Review issue, which will land in newsstands this week. We've picked five especially shameful shmucks to be included in this readers' poll, and you can read all about them in 2010 in our Shmuck of the Year archive.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
