The Legislature launched an investigation today into State Representative Douglas Bruce for kicking a newspaper photographer during a prayer on the floor of the House.
The Colorado Springs republican accused the photographer of causing a disruption by snapping his photo during the traditional session-opening prayer Monday morning.
House Speaker Andrew Romanoff says he'll form a special committee that will have powers similar to an ethics committee, which can recommend discipline ranging from a reprimand to expulsion.
The first meeting of the committee will be at Noon on Friday. Representative Steve King will sit on the committee.
