Finchem files ethics complaint against all Democrats over FBI referral

Oro Valley Republican Mark Finchem filed an ethics complaint against every Democratic member of the Arizona legislature Tuesday for a letter they sent last month asking the Department of Justice and FBI to investigate his and other lawmakers’ alleged roles in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Finchem was at the Capitol when Trump supporters engaged in a violent coup attempt aimed at stopping Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory that left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer. On his Twitter page, Finchem posted a photo he took from nearby the Capitol after rioters and protesters had breached the building and forced members of Congress into hiding.

“What happens when the People feel they have been ignored, and Congress refuses to acknowledge rampant fraud,” he wrote, praising the rioters.

Finchem has since deleted his Twitter account.

State Rep. César Chávez, D-Phoenix, filed an ethics complaint about the tweet, arguing that it showed Finchem participated in the insurrection. In the following four weeks, the committee received 81 more complaints. Those ethics complaints were all dismissed last week.
