'It's Time for Accountability' - Leader Cano Statement on Troubling Liz Harris Ethics Report


PHOENIX – House Democratic Leader Andrés Cano said it's time for House Republicans to hold Representative Liz Harris accountable following a House Ethics Committee report released today. The report can be read here. Democratic Representative Stephanie Stahl Hamilton of Tucson filed the ethics complaint on March 6 after Republicans failed to act after Harris invited a speaker to February 28 joint Elections Committee hearing who used the legislative platform to level wild and unproven criminal allegations against multiple public officials and judges – including the Speaker of the House – as well the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“I appreciate the diligent and transparent work done by the House Ethics Committee. The findings are definite and supported by evidence and testimony— and it is now time for House Republicans to hold Representative Harris accountable," Cano said. "When House Democrats asked for a censure earlier this year, House Republicans said no. The report now clearly demonstrates that Representative Harris has damaged the integrity of the institution that we all hold dear, and House Republicans need to tell us what their plan is to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
