Lets keep our facts straight please.
Who has their fact wrong? I never said he paroled him early.
In fact it is even weirder in the press conference about the prisoner officials murder, the Governor indirectly referenced the accused murder. In that he hired the official because he was known to reduce the amount of solitary confinement used in prisons.. Something that was reportedly driving the accused killer insane while in prison. All Hickenlooper tried to do was help.
Again, who has their facts wrong? No one said Hickenlooper got this guy out early. Edit: never mind I see the reference in the OP
