Fla. Panel Finds 11 Potential Ethics Violation by Congressman

Florida's state Ethics Commission on Wednesday said it had found “probable cause” that Rep. David Rivera (R-Fla.) may have violated ethics laws in 11 instances while serving in the state legislature.

The possible violations include the misuse of campaign funds and accepting income from a company that could have influenced his vote in the Florida House of Representatives.

The commission’s finding is the latest in a cascade of ethical troubles that has plagued Rivera almost from the moment he won election to Congress in 2010.
