Denver Mayor's 'inappropriate' texts to female cop: 'You look sexy', ever taken 'pole dancing' class [View all]

Denver Mayor’s ‘inappropriate’ texts to female cop: ‘You look sexy,’ ever taken ‘pole dancing’ classes?

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock sent suggestive text messages to a police officer on his security detail during his first year in office, behavior he now acknowledges as “inappropriate” six years later after the detective alleged in a new interview that she suffered sexual harassment.

In several text messages from 2012 that the Denver police officer provided — and which Hancock did not dispute — the mayor told her that she made it hard for him to concentrate at work. After spotting her on TV at a Denver Nuggets game, he texted: “You look sexy in all that black.” Another time, he complimented her haircut and said: “You make it hard on a brotha to keep it correct every day.”

Another text asked her about pole-dancing classes: “So I just watched this story on women taking pole dancing classes. Have you ever taken one? Why do women take the course? If not have you ever considered taking one and why? Your thoughts?” When she didn’t respond, the officer said, she received a followup text from Hancock: “Be careful, I’m curious. LOL!”

Detective Leslie Branch-Wise spoke publicly for the first time Tuesday night in an exclusive interview aired by Denver7, the television partner of The Denver Post.
