Denver, CO – On the heels of the recent revelations that Colorado state Rep. Jovan Melton was arrested twice on domestic violence charges, Compass Colorado is asking why Jared Polis has not demanded Melton’s resignation. Polis and Melton’s friendship is documented all over various social media sites, so this latest revelation must be upsetting to Polis.

“As an avowed woke ally to feminist causes, Polis must understand leadership means standing up for what’s right even when it’s uncomfortable,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “Jared Polis should lead the pack and call for his friend’s immediate resignation.”
