Ethics complaint filed in Washoe DA race

By ThisIsReno


A complaint was filed Friday with the Nevada State Ethics Commission by the Roger Whomes campaign charging misuse of the district attorney’s office for campaign-related activities.

Among the charges are using county staff as campaign staff during regular office hours, distributing county office materials at campaign events, sending political and campaign emails from the county address during regular office hours and releasing confidential police reports. The four-page complaint is available here.

This entire scenario is a clear misuse of public funds and a violation of public trust. The Whomes campaign received this information from several people and was able to compile the evidence and file the complaint.

Whomes, on behalf of the citizens of Washoe County, hopes to see a quick resolution to these violations and expects future activity on the part of the District Attorney Richard Gammick to strictly adhere to campaign ethics.
