Subcommittee Upholds Some Ethics Complaints Against Rep. Lynn

Steve Heimel, APRN – Anchorage

A House subcommittee of the Legislative Ethics committee has decided Representative Bob Lynn went over the line and veered into campaigning in his constituent newsletter.

Lynn admits it was a mistake to mention that he was running for re-election.   The subcommittee also upheld a complaint that Lynn promoted commercial businesses on his website that might have supported his campaign.  In all, it upheld four ethics complaints and dismissed six and recommended no fines.  The record does not disclose where the ethics complaints came from.
