Kamala Harris And Elizabeth Warren Named Ethics Violators By Watchdog Group

Democrat Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California have been recognized by an ethics group as violators. This is related to fundraising the two did during the hearings for then Supreme Court nominee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Breitbart reports:

Ethics Group Slams Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris for Brett Kavanaugh Fundraising

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) has released its list of Worst Ethics Violators of 2018, which includes 2020 presidential hopefuls Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Both Harris and Warren used their opposition of Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court as an opportunity to fundraise, according to FACT. The two Democratic Senators sent out emails claiming that the donation played a vital role in battling his confirmation. Shortly thereafter, FACT filed an ethics complaint against both senators.

Warren was caught off guard during a televised debate when her opponent mentioned that she was under investigation for an ethics complaint. At the time of the debate, Warren claimed she did not know about the invesitgation into the complaint.

FACT stated in the complaint:

Senators must conduct themselves according to the Senate Ethics rules. Under the Senate Ethics Manual’s Scope of The Authority, the Senate ‘may discipline a Member for any misconduct, including conduct or activity which does not directly relate to official duties, when such conduct unfavorably reflects on the institution as a whole.’

This is not going to help either of them in 2020, that’s for sure.
