Release: Schweikert Faces The Music In House Ethics Probe

PHOENIX – Yesterday, the House Ethics Committee released their report on their years-long investigation of Rep. David Schweikert’s campaign finance violations. The committee unanimously found that Rep. Schweikert violated House rules, the Code of Ethics for Government Service, and federal laws. Schweikert admitted to 11 rules violations and will pay a $50,000 fine.

This morning, the House voted to formally sanction Rep. Schweikert for violating campaign finance rules and improperly using official resources for his reelection efforts.

Arizona Democratic Party spokesman Matt Grodsky issued the following statement: 

“Eleven rules violations will be Schweikert’s lasting legacy. Arizonans in CD6 have had enough of Schweikert and his dishonesty. It’s clear that they want leaders who will work for them and fight for affordable, quality health care, public education, and an economy that works for everyone. Schweikert will pay for his wrongdoing with $50,000 and his seat on election night.”
