Republican candidate for state treasurer Walker Stapleton is defending himself against claims he was involved in a hit and run accident in 1999 in San Francisco.

According to the Denver Post, court documents make it appear he struck two pedestrians and then tried to drive away. Stapleton told the paper he was charged with DUI and a hit-and-run but that the latter charged was dropped.

Stapleton's campaign manager Michael Fortney told The Associated Press that he was just pulling out of the way of traffic.

Stapleton, meanwhile, is attacking Democratic incumbent Cary Kennedy for not speaking up over problems with the pension fund for state and local government employees. She says she's spoken at just about every pension meeting over the last four years.

    I always pick a very popular alias, which is why I'm proven to be correct again for persuading kktv to allow the registering of usernames.

    He's attacking her for not speaking and she is attacking him for being a drunk....and you are voting for him because of what? Please stop using my moniker. Educate yourself with something other than FOX and remember to vote for me...the first openly gay Mayor.

    Here's a better idea: who cares? I will probably vote for him now just because people who can't run on anything and attack others do not get my vote.
