No decision from Denver City Council on possible mayor investigation

DENVER -- City Council members in Denver are still tight lipped about their thoughts on an investigation into the sexual harassment claims made against Mayor Michael Hancock.

After an almost three-hour executive session on Tuesday night, council president Albus Brooks said the city's attorney would release a response on Wednesday.

But there was no response.

“Yeah, it’s too soon,” City Councilman Rafael Espinoza said.

Espinoza wouldn't answer questions about any specifics. He said all comments would have to come from Brooks, who said he couldn't talk either.

“I would say we’re going to get our attorney to respond to their attorney that’s what would say," Brooks said.

Brooks and Espinoza said if an investigation into the mayor's behavior did happen, there would need to be a formal, public vote.

That vote hasn't happened and it's one that might never happen. The city council is still deciding if it even wants to vote.

“Nothing has been decided,” Brooks said.

The mayor's office continues to say Hancock will cooperate with whatever the council decides.
