Seeking Arrangement is devoted to pairing self-proclaimed sugar daddies (and a few sugar mommies) with students and other young people willing to trade companionship for financial support. It's a controversial service in some quarters, but also a popular one in Colorado. Earlier this year, Seeking Arrangement revealed that CU-Boulder was among the top ten sugar daddy schools in the country -- and now, the site lists Denver among the top fifteen sugar daddy cities. Photos, data and details below.

But the accusations contained in an affidavit aimed at Vadym Pecherskyi, a 42-year-old from Kiev, Ukraine, hit new heights of creepiness, with one alleged victim saying she felt he would have raped her and a co-worker if given half a chance. Continue for the incredible details and the complete document.

Would Personhood Measure Amendment 67 Ban In Vitro Fertilization?

Categories: Politics

If you ask those in favor of Amendment 67 and those opposed to it what it would do, you'll get very different answers. Opponents say it would ban abortion. Supporters say that's not the point. The point, they say, is to make it so unborn babies are treated the same as people in the Colorado criminal code. In other words, if you kill an unborn baby, you could be charged with homicide in the same way you might be if you killed an adult.

But would those protections extend to fertilized eggs that don't actually become babies? And if so, does that mean Amendment 67 would affect in vitro fertilization?

As any comic-book fan knows, superheroes that seem dead can later come back to life -- and something similar has happened with a superhero-centric lawsuit filed by Colorado-based Stan Lee Media, Incorporated (SLMI). The complaint seemingly died last year, but an appeal revived it, leading to a hearing held in Denver yesterday. Continue for background, details and the original suit below.

Pot Lies Being Used to Justify Police Shootings of Young Black and Brown Men, Advocate Says

A photo of Michael Brown, who was killed in a Ferguson, Missouri police shooting. More images below.
As we've reported, prominent addiction specialist and Project SAM principal Dr. Christian Thurstone stirred controversy via a blog post implying that marijuana contributed to -- and perhaps even caused -- the death of Michael Brown, whose shooting by a police officer caused weeks of rioting in Ferguson, Missouri. Thurstone subsequently removed the post but didn't rescind his thesis, and that infuriates marijuana advocate Wanda James. She feels misinformation like that spread by Thurstone is being used to justify police shootings of "young black and brown men." Details below.

Videos: Rachel Maddow in Denver Takes on Fox News, Mark Udall's Dourness and Pot

An MSNBC photo of Rachel Maddow in Denver. Two videos and more below.
In our preview of Rachel Maddow's broadcast from Denver last night, we noted that she'd touted the show at the Viewhouse Ballpark by noting that the race for Colorado's governor was "off the hook." In the end, though, she spent little time talking about this contest during the highly entertaining program, focusing instead on more Fox News scaremongering, the Democratic party's supposed "secret sauce" and, inevitably, recreational pot. Details, three videos and more below.
