TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Democratic Party activist wants an ethics investigation into Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson, who is considering a run for Senate.

St. Lucie County Democratic Party chairwoman Celeste Bush filed the complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics on Tuesday. It accuses Grayson of failing to properly disclose details of three hedge funds, including their investors and his income from them. She also says the fact that Grayson named the investment funds after himself violates House ethics rules.

Questions about the accounts were first raised by Politico Florida.

Grayson political spokesman Kevin Franck says the congressman didn’t break any laws or violate ethics rules.

Franck points out Bush tried to decertify a progressive Democratic Party group that supports Grayson and criticizes Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy, who’s already in the Senate race.
