Gun Law - Extortion?

A Colorado sheriff has said he has an e-mail from an aide to anti-gun Senator John Morse suggesting that a bill to raise the pay of sheriffs in Colorado would stand a better chance of passing if the sheriffs would drop their opposition to the gun bills currently being rammed through the legislature.

Trading a vote for my bill for a vote for your bill is pretty much accepted practice, but threatening a legislated pay raise sounds more like Chicago than we're used to here.

Local TV news has picked the story up, so the cat's out of the bag on this one.
