Monte Mesa files ethics complaint against Rector

Port Authority of Guam board of directors chairman Monte Mesa has filed an official ethics complaint against Guam Federation of Teachers President and Senator Matt Rector.

Mesa says he filed the complaint as a private citizen, and not as the PAG's board chairperson.

Speaker Judi Won Pat confirms that she received the letter from Mesa and as is normal protocol, she referred the matter the Clerk's Office that referred the complaint to the Committee on Rules chaired by Senator Judith Guthertz, who is out sick today. 

Senator Rector meanwhile tells KUAM that he hasn't seen the complaint but he finds it "incredibly amazing" that Mesa is calling him unethical.  Rector adding, "His (Mesa's) ethics have been anything but ethical, as well as his actions as the Port board chairperson.  Him calling me unethical, I would expect nothing less from him." 

Meanwhile, the Democrat senator says he believes the standing rules do not allow ethics complaints to be filed against senators by private citizens.

The complaint was submitted to the Speaker's Office and is now with the Committee on Rules, of which Senator Guthertz is the acting chair.
