DENVER (AP) - An upcoming film about Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is prompting ethical questions about the financing of the short documentary. And a man who wants to oust the governor is charged with deciding the ethical question.

The Denver Post reports Monday that the conservative group Citizens United is making an hour-long film likely to criticize the Democratic incumbent (http://bit.ly/1kCAUxD).

At issue is whether the group should be required to disclose its finances in funding the documentary. The question will be heard Tuesday by the office of Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who is one of four Republicans running to challenge Hickenlooper in November.

The question on funding transparency goes to Gessler, though the decision will be made by someone else in his office.
