David Williams facing ethics complaint

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate David
Williams is being accused of not reporting gambling activity on a
2003 financial disclosure form.
That accusation was the basis of a complaint filed Monday with
the Legislative Ethics Commission by Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon.
As president of the Kentucky state Senate, Williams is required
to periodically file documents listing personal financial
information. Logsdon charges that Williams made no mention of his
gambling income received in 2002. The gambling income had been
included on personal tax returns that were part of an old divorce
file.
In the complaint, Logsdon charged that Williams intentionally
misled the public by failing to report the gambling income.
Williams spokesman Scott Jennings didn't immediately return a
phone call seeking comment.
