Moffitt violates ethics rules with campaign announcements

Here’s an excerpt from the Asheville Citizen-Times article:

Two state lawmakers have violated ethics rules that prohibit the use of General Assembly email for campaign purposes. …

Ethical Principal and Guideline 7, drafted in 2007, says lawmakers may not conduct campaign activities in state offices or with state equipment. …

Republican Rep. Tim Moffitt, who is running for re-election in House District 116, sent his announcement to a reporter at the Citizen-Times on Feb. 15. …

He said he did not intend to break the rules. He sent the announcement from home. …

He had both his personal and legislative email accounts open and, he said, used the wrong one by mistake.

“It is a violation of the ethics,” he said. “My apologies.”
