CALIFORNIA — A group of constituents from the 21st congressional district filed a complaint against Fil-Am Democratic representative, Congressman TJ Cox, alleging he failed to disclose certain business interests, and misled voters.
Constituents filed the complaint with the office of Congressional Ethics — an independent, non-partisan, entity in charge of reviewing allegations of misconduct within the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Fresno Bee found Cox failed to disclose 2 mining companies, 2 property developers, and an Alaskan-based consult firm.
A representative for Cox’s campaign told the Fresno Bee that Cox was involved with a variety of small businesses, and he’s in the process of ensuring his disclosure paperwork accurately reflects those past efforts.
Cox dismissed the complaint as a partisan attack from a former staffer of the Republican he unseated last fall, David Valadao.
