House Democrats Respond to GOP Allegations
Salt Lake City - In response to allegations made by the Utah Republican Party, the leadership of the House Democratic Caucus represented by Minority Leader Brian King released the following statement:
“These are very significant allegations that all members of our caucus take extremely seriously. After reviewing the emails in question and JR6-1-103 with staff and legal counsel, we have determined that we are not and have never been in violation of Utah legislative ethics rules.
We do not accept and have never accepted campaign contributions for the Utah House Dems Leadership Council while on Capitol hill. It is unfortunate that the incorrect address was on several emails from the PAC, but at no time were funds collected on Capitol grounds. The Utah House Democratic Caucus Leadership has not breached any ethical rules.”
