Spano Addresses House Ethics Inquiry
Washington, November 14, 2019
Washington, D.C. – Representative Ross Spano (Florida-15) issued the following statement addressing the extension of the House Ethics inquiry. House Ethics notes that this deferral does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgement on behalf of the committee.
“Today, the House Committee on Ethics deferred their review of my self-reported filings with the FEC. We plan to cooperate fully with the Justice Department on this matter. As I’ve said before, we acknowledged that mistakes were made with respect to the campaign loans, but those mistakes were completely inadvertent and unintentional. We were the ones who self-reported this to the FEC. We are confident that upon review, the Justice Department will see it that way, too. I continue to have doubts about the timing and motive behind this inquiry, as the impeachment proceedings this week have shown me how far the left will go to destroy their opponents. I remain committed to the issues that are important to my constituents.”
