Kind of a big deal.

From Daily Wire:

Jared Polis, Colorado’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee, shoved a female employee at his office which resulted in minor injury, physically prevented her from leaving, and then blocked her from calling the police, according to a newly discovered police report.

In the police report obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Polis admitted to police that he pushed Patricia Hughes in June of 1999 “at an office Polis had in Boulder for a company called JPS International LLC.”

Polis, whose legal name at the time was Jared Polis Schutz, told police that Hughes “had given her resignation a few days earlier, but called him on the day in question saying she had information to ‘go after’ him if her exit from the company did not go smoothly.”

Free Beacon has more:

Polis’s account of the extent of the physical contact differs from what Hughes told a different officer who interviewed her.

“Hughes then tried to leave and Schutz did not let her leave. Hughes said that he grabbed her and pushed her back into the office. Hughes said that when Schutz pushed her she was pushed back into a file cabinet, hurting her leg. Hughes said that she then said that she was going to call 911 and went to the phone. Hughes said that she tried calling 911 three times and twice Schutz hung the phone up. The third time Hughes got through,” according to Hughes’s interview with police.

The officer who interviewed Polis made other notes about Hughes’s appearance, as it related to the confrontation.


“I did observe two bruise marks on Ms. Hughes left inside bicep and a red welt on her thigh. She stated that the bruises on her arms were from Mr. Schutz ‘grabbing’ her with his right hand. The bruises were not conducive with Mr. Schutz’s statement that he pushed her shoulders. Nor were they conducive with Ms. Hughes’s statement of Mr. Schutz standing in front of her and grabbing her.”

“The welt on her thigh she said was from Mr. Schutz pushing her back when she attempted to leave. The welt was conducive with the a (sic) file cabinet in front of the door. There was also a key protruding from the upper right hand corner of the cabinet that could have produced the welt.”

Both officers mentioned that after inspecting a bag Hughes was carrying, they found files that belonged to the business.

Coloradans owe it to themselves to take a serious look at Republican candidate Walker Stapleton.
