Another ethics complaint against Mike Holcomb

MIKE HOLCOMB: Another ethics complaint.
  • MIKE HOLCOMB: Another ethics complaint.
Does Republican Rep. Mike Holcomb ever file accurate and timely campaign finance reports?

You begin to wonder in reading a second complaint filed on top of one already under investigation by the state Ethics Commission. It's prima facie stuff — late filings, non-existent filings, lack of itemized accounting of credit card charges, evidence of expenditures made (newspaper ads) that haven't been disclosed in reports and a contribution in excess of the limit.  It's not like it's his first rodeo. He's completing his second term in the House. He's been working to amend his reports under the get-out-of-jail-free rule the legislature passed to prevent embarrassing ethics findings, but his opponents indicate he still doesn't have the process down.


Holcomb is opposed by Democrat Dorothy Hall, narrowly defeated by Holcomb in 2014.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
