  • The Humane Society of Boulder Valley named Kim Sporrer as director of communications. Sporrer most recently was with Linhart PR.

Aiello Rep’ing Terror Suspect Lawyer

Arthur Folsom, the lawyer representing Colorado terrorist suspect Najibullah Zazi, hasn’t exactly been knocking the ball out of the park lately (who lets their client voluntarily talk to the FBI only to have them arrested for lying to the FBI a couple of days later?). But brighter days assuredly are on the horizon. Folsom has retained Wendy Aiello of Aiello Public Relations to represent him.

Unfortunately, things so far are not going well for Aiello, who is married to CBS4 GM Walt DeHaven. Since adding Folsom as a client four days ago, Bruce Goldberg at the Denver Business Journal reports she has received a number of threatening and abusive phone calls and emails.
