Ethics complaint targets Georgia tea party leader

A Republican attorney filed an ethics complaint Friday claiming a prominent Georgia tea party leader failed to register as a lobbyist and disclose most of her political advocacy work.

The complaint targets Debbie Dooley, a co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots who has attracted national attention for her advocacy for alternative energy initiatives.

The ethics charge, filed by Bryan Tyson, contends that Dooley’s work is often funded by “dark money” groups but that she’s tried to shield herself from the state’s reporting requirements because she often labels herself as a tea party activist.

Dooley said she filed the necessary paperwork and characterized the complaint as an attempt to silence her advocacy work, which includes outspoken opposition to the Plant Vogtle nuclear project.
