House Ethics Committee to hold hearing over complains against Rep. Giddings

The House Ethics Committee has received two complaints against Rep. Priscilla Giddings, alleging conduct unbecoming of a representative.

The ethics committee conducted a preliminary investigation and found probable cause does exist that misconduct may have occurred regarding a portion of each complaint.

The Idaho Press reports, one complaint was filed by a mix of Republicans and Democrats.

Boise State Public Radio reported in June that Giddings was facing an ethics investigation for publicizing the personal information of a 19-year-old legislative staffer who accused former Rep. Aaron von Ehlinger of rape. Giddings posted a link to her Facebook page in April that included the woman’s photo and name.

The House Ethics Committee will hold a public hearing on both partial complaints at 9 a.m. Aug. 2nd, and if necessary, the hearing will continue on the following day.
