LP007:Camping in Longmont, Fracking,Jared Polis accused of being a Communist and inside trader

On this weeks Longmont Politics, we started off with restrictions on camping at Union Reservoir – with a segue to our new show “In The Field Camping Podcast“, followed by the proposed fracking regulations for Longmont.  We closed with U.S. Congressman Jared Polis and how a fellow congressman said he and others are basically communists, and the charges of insider trading against Mr. Polis – and glitter bomber (and Brandon Shaffer assistant) apologizes for assaulting Mitt Romney.  (Some material from Colorado Peak Politics, Times-Call, and Washington Post’s “The Fix”)
