Guam - The Legislative Ethics Committee's legal counsel, Anthony Camacho, disclosed that he may have a conflict of interest handling the ethics complaint filed by Harold Cruz against Lieutenant Governor-elect Ray Tenorio.  During a meeting today, Camacho revealed that he had contributed to the Calvo-Tenorio campaign and his wife is on the transition team. 

The disclosure raised significant concerns for Democratic senators Rory Respicio and Tina Muna Barnes.  "I feel that there was even a doubt that he proceed unless he relayed to this committee, and for me personally having to look at the due process of a case that if there is even that slight doubt that he should have brought it to the committee beforehand and ask that this body should have decided whether he should have proceeded or not," Barnes said.

Camacho went ahead and did the preliminary report on Cruz's complaint anyway, but the board chose to retain outside counsel to review the complaint. Cruz is alleging unethical and fraudulent acts by Senator Tenorio, saying he had used that name prior to it being legally changed from Raymond Stanley Waddey, Jr.

Cruz had been arrested twice for illegal hunting and was let go at the Judiciary for allegedly faking a fall in the court's elevator.
