The American Democracy Legal Fund has filed a complaint with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics against Senator Jeff Sessions.
Senator Sessions made baseless and irresponsible allegations that the 2016 presidential election is rigged, perpetuating unsubstantiated claims that threaten the stability of our election process and the safety of voters on Election Day. Such comments and behavior not only reflect negatively upon the Senate, but attempt to discredit our entire democratic system. Accordingly, we respectfully request that the Committee investigate these claims and take appropriate remedial action against the Senator for improper conduct that is “contrary to accepted morals [and] derogates from the public trust expected of a Senator.”
The complaint is available below and with full exhibits here. The American Democracy Legal Fund holds candidates for office accountable for possible ethics and/or legal violations. It is run by Brad Woodhouse.
