DENVER (AP) – Denver mayor-elect Michael Hancock is fighting back over allegations that he solicited prostitutes.

Hancock released phone records on Tuesday to The Denver Post and Denver’s KUSA-TV and the news organizations found no phone numbers for the former Denver Players and Denver Sugar prostitution businesses and its employees. Hancock also released his calendar records.

Hancock’s cell phone number is included in the client book of the businesses’ former owner.

Scottie J. Ewing, who owned the business from 2003 to 2005, has said most customers had to provide a phone number that would be called and verified. Notations next to Hancock’s name in the appointment logs alleged he called from payphones.

Hancock has denied soliciting prostitutes.

The release of unedited and unredacted personal cellphone records came eight business days after The Post and KUSA requested them.
