Ethics panel dismisses complaint against Comer

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Legislative Ethics Commission has
dismissed a complaint filed against Republican agriculture
commissioner candidate James Comer, who stood accused by political
opponents of using a state employee to work on his campaign during
regular business hours.
In an order filed Tuesday afternoon, the ethics panel said the
complaint against Comer contained "significant errors."
Comer, a state lawmaker form Tompkinsville, is running for
agriculture commissioner against Democrat Bob Farmer, a Louisville
marketing strategist.
At issue were Facebook postings that the Farmer campaign alleged
were filed by a state worker on state time. The ethics panel found
no such evidence, concluding that the complaint was false.
