Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert admits 11 ethics violations, will pay $50K fine

Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert reached a deal announced Thursday to end a longstanding House Ethics Committee investigation by admitting to 11 rules violations, accepting a reprimand, and agreeing to pay a $50,000 fine.

The committee found “substantial evidence” of violations by the five-term congressman stretching from 2010 into 2018.

Those violations include undisclosed loans and campaign contributions; misuse of campaign funds for personal purposes; improper spending by his office; and an environment where office staffers were pressured to do political work.

A former rising star in state GOP politics, an ongoing corruption investigation has cast a shadow over Schweikert’s political career since late 2017, when allegations of misspending first surfaced.

2. Reminds me of my old stomping grounds, Dana Russiabacker's former district in coastal Orange County

Until one day, they just got tired of him - and elected Harley Rouda (a man the GOP was laughing at just months before).
