Ethics complaint filed against Barbara Comstock for disclosure violation

congressThe American Democracy Legal Fund (ADLF) has filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against Barbara Comstock, candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional district.

The Washington Post reported recently that Comstock “failed to report that a public-relations company she owns took in a total of $85,000 in 2012 trying to help Mitt Romney become president, an apparent breach of congressional ethics rules.”

The American Democracy Legal Fund has requested the Office of Congressional Ethics investigate whether Ms. Comstock’s action constituted a calculated and deliberate attempt to deprive voters of an important source of information about her background. The full complaint and associated exhibits are available here and here.

The American Democracy Legal Fund is a group established by David Brock and run by Brad Woodhouse, the purpose of which is to hold candidates for office accountable for possible ethics and/or legal violations.
