Welcome the newest member to the Politicker family,

Above is a link to my first cartoon there. Jared Polis has made a couple of political missteps lately.

First, he introduces a new ad campaign ripping defense contractors and “war profiteers” for prolonging the Iraq War in the name of corporate greed. It might be an effective commercial, except that his congressional campaign admitted on the day it was released that Polis has invested in at least two companies targeted in the ad:

Also in the ad, we clearly see him in Iraq. But he claimed that his trip to Iraq wasn't a publicity stunt, and that in fact is was a United Way trip?
