Josh Green Thinks Scott McInnis is Sleazy, Should Quit (UPDATED)

Someone mentioned to me a while back that the campaign manager spokesman for serial-plagiarist Scott McInnis, the Republican nominee for governor in Colorado, is also named Joshua Green. I didn't think much of it at the time. That was before McInnis's appalling behavior, and narcissistic attempt to dismiss it as none of the voters' concern, came to light. But it sort of besmirches the "Joshua Green" brand to have some rogue clown out there trying to get McInnis elected governor, doesn't it? Especially given my vocation and McInnis's offense. Time to fight back. Are there any Colorado reporters out there reading this? If so, this is on the record. Just attribute it to "Joshua Green": "Scott McInnis is a sleazy, self-dealing weasel who probably couldn't sign a check without plagiarizing, and he should immediately drop out of the gubernatorial race."

There. That ought to balance the ledger.

UPDATE: Per this item in Westword, Denver's excellent alt-weekly, Joshua Green has apparently stopped returning calls from the media. This simply won't do--not in the middle of a heated campaign with so many reporters on deadline. So please allow me to help. If you are a reporter and need a quote from Joshua Green, I'd be happy to supply one, unvarnished and on-the-record, anytime. Call or email me and I'll do my best to respond pronto.
