IN THE NEWS: Latest ethics complaint against Congressman Rokita continues to make waves

INDIANAPOLIS – The latest ethics complaint against Congressman Rokita is making headlines across the state. Last night, WPTA TV-21 in Fort Wayne ran their own story on the complaint – the second filed against Congressman Rokita in recent months – launched by the American Democracy Legal Fund.

The complaint follows an Associated Press report earlier this month where three staffers said they “felt obligated” to do supposedly voluntary work for Congressman Rokita’s campaigns. The complaint calls on the FEC to investigate these comments, as if true, Congressman Rokita would be misusing taxpayer-funded congressional staff for his own personal political gain.

Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita is now the subject of an ethics complaint. The American Democracy Legal Fund filed that complaint against Rokita based on allegations he had government staff do campaign work – a violation of the House rules and House code of official conduct.

The complaint is based on a recent Associated Press report where Rokita reportedly made congressional staffers feel, quote, “obligated” to perform “volunteer” political work for his campaigns and there would be consequences if they did not.
