(Des Moines, IA) Republican Party of Iowa Co-Chairman Cody Hoefert released a statement today regarding an ethics complaint recently filed against Brad Anderson, the Democratic candidate for Iowa Secretary of State.

“With just over two weeks before Election Day, we now learn that Brad Anderson either ignored Iowa’s election laws or does not believe they apply to him. Either way, this only goes to underscore the fact that he is not someone Iowans can trust to uphold the integrity of their elections.”

Late last week, a complaint was filed with the Iowa Ethics & Campaign Disclosure Board against Brad Anderson and the Anderson for Iowa Committee by David Chung of Cedar Rapids. The complaint, containing five counts, concerns Iowa Code section 68A.405, which requires that candidates provide a financial disclosure statement on campaign advertisements and other videos.

These recent revelations are hardly the first time the Anderson campaign has been embroiled in legal controversy. Just prior to announcing his bid for Iowa Secretary of State, Anderson’s political staffer Zach Edwards pled guilty to stealing the identity of current Secretary of State Matt Schultz in an attempt to falsely implicate him in criminal wrongdoing.
