Ethics Commission says Complaint Against Huckabee not Frivolous

APRIL 19, 2004 - Posted at 8:04 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Ethics Commission has refused to declare frivolous a complaint against Governor Huckabee.

The governor had asked the commission to make the declaration on a complaint filed by Max Brantley, editor of the weekly Arkansas Times newspaper in Little Rock.

Brantley alleged Huckabee failed to disclose and properly use contributions given to a fund for his 2003 inaugural events.

Last month, the commission voted unanimously to dismiss the complaint, finding the state Republican Party handled contributions for the events so Huckabee was not required under ethics law to do the reporting.

On Friday, the commission voted unanimously to deny Huckabee's request to declare Brantley's complaint frivolous.  Filing a frivolous ethics complaint is punishable with a public letter of warning, a reprimand or a fine of $25 to $1,000.
