Democrats file ethics complaint against Heineman
Question of the Day
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Democratic Party has filed an ethics complaint against Gov. Dave Heineman, alleging that he illegally used state resources to announce that he would apply for the University of Nebraska presidency.
The complaint says Heineman, a Republican, announced his candidacy using his state staff, stationary, office space and social media. It also alleges that the governor used public money to set up a meeting with Howard Hawks, chairman of the university’s Board of Regents.
Heineman is accused of violating laws that prohibit public employees from using state resources for financial gain or to campaign for a public office.
The governor’s office says it hasn’t yet received the complaint, but deputy communications director Sue Roush says Heineman believes it’s politically motivated.
