New Complaint Filed With Legislature’s Ethics Committee; Details Released Thursday


Guam – A new, and so far undisclosed Ethics Complaint has been filed with the Legislature’s Ethics Committee. That complaint was filed on November 29th. It has not yet been disclosed who filed it or what Senator the complaint is directed against.

Senator Judi Guthertz this morning told PNC News that details of the ethics complaint will be released tomorrow [Thursday]. And the Ethics Committee will meet Monday to consider the complaint

Beyond this new complaint, that has not yet been disclosed, the only other active case under consideration by the Ethics Committee is Harold Cruz’s complaint against Lt. Governor Elect Ray Tenorio concerning Tenorio’s name change in 1996.

Last month, the Ethics Panel rejected the preliminary report prepared by their regular counsel Anthony Camacho after Camacho disclosed that he had contributed to the Calvo-Tenorio Campaign and that his wife was on the Calvo-Tenorio transition team.

The Committee issued a wanted notice for another Attorney to hear Cruz’s complaint. Senator Judi Guthertz says they have selected an attorney to hear the Cruz complaint and that attorney’s name will be announced tomorrow as well.

Camacho’s report exonerated Tenorio, but it was not adopted by the Ethics Panel, nor was it publicly released. But you can read the copy obtained by PNC News by clicking on the link below.
